Yonder Alonso

Finally, Yonder Alonso -- the Reds' 1st-round pick who scouting director Chris Buckley thinks we'll sign by the August 15th deadline -- spoke with teenage brothers associated with the Miami Herald in a story published yesterday. Here are a few of his statements:

Q: What really ticks you off?
A: People that are not neat. I don't like it at all. I like to be very neat.

Q: Does your mind ever wander during a game or during a break?
A: Yes, a lot. Too much. I just start thinking about a lot of things but don't tell my coach. He would probably get mad, but I definitely start wandering off. I don't know why. I just do it.

Q: What is the coolest prank you have ever done?
A: My roommate was sleeping and I wanted to mess around with his hair. So I shaved half of his hair and made a U on the other half.
