The Cubs and Cardinals were involved in a lengthy rain delay late in yesterday’s game, and, like normal human beings, ballplayers can get a little stir crazy when they’re cooped up for a couple hours just sitting around. And they get hungry, too.
So, like good teammates, Pedro Strop and Javier Baez decided to get some grub for fellow hungry man Jorge Soler, who must have wanted Chinese food …
Soler thought baez had chinese food, & he went got a plate & everything & it was just a burger.… https://t.co/eX4VyL299q

PRANKED! You thought you were getting Chinese food, and bam, burger.
Ok. So that’s a perfectly fine prank among friends, but maybe not necessarily the kind of thing that would get its own post on Baseball is Fun. So why am I writing this? Because you will never enjoy anything as much as it sounds like Strop enjoyed this:
Actually, I take that back. You WILL enjoy something as much as Strop enjoyed that – you will enjoy him enjoying it, because that laugh is priceless.
The question: who laughed it better, Pedro Strop or Brett Phillips? You’ve been warned: don’t watch the Phillips video immediately after the Strop video, and especially not on a loop bouncing back and forth between the two, because you will not survive the day without heading for a padded cell.
