More hilarious racist scouting comps

About halfway down the page. Apparently, according to a "major league executive", Braves top hitting prospect Jason Heyward is a cross between "Dave Parker, Darryl Strawberry and Fred McGriff". So, um, he's a black guy who plays the OF. It's nice to see they didn't violate the age-old scouting tenet of only comparing players to others of identical ethnic background; of course, there's no WAY that Heyward could compare to, say, any tall, highly athletic white slugger who plays the OF.... Also, it's apparently worth pointing out in the next paragraph that Heyward (black) and Freddie Freeman (white) are best friends, as if that's something entirely out of the ordinary. Nice stuff. At least they have makeup that is "off the charts". I've no doubt Maybeline will be delighted.
