Braves Quote For The Day

This article from Yahoo is a couple of days old, but worth a read, if not for the gushing praise of our young right fielder:

Al Goetz needed to make the rest of the baseball world think the Atlanta Braves wanted nothing to do with Jason Heyward(notes). So he did what any reasonable scout would. Goetz turned into a stalker.

Past the outfield fence at Henry County High School stands a small forest, and as all the other scouts passing through suburban Atlanta sneaked peeks at Heyward from behind home plate, Goetz settled in the thicket. Scouting success often necessitates subterfuge, and in order to watch Heyward without giving away the Braves' desire to draft him, Goetz played woodsman.

It actually gets better after that.
