Baseball really is the greatest. Sure, there’s the home runs, the strikeouts and the the self-serve beer stations, but there’s also the mascots. The Houston Astros’ Orbit is one of the cutest, in a “but-don’t-ever-corner-me-in-a-dark-alley” kind of way.
But Oakland A’s slugger Coco Crisp isn’t such a big fan. Here he is on Tuesday repeatedly snubbing Orbit while the big green guy tries to get him to play Twister.
Orbit resigned himself to looking on from the sidelines after his failure to get Crisp to put his right foot on yellow, or left hand on green, or whatever.

Making matters worse for Orbit, the MLB rubbed it all in later with a photo summary of the snub.

But all was not lost for Orbit. His team won on Tuesday night, 4-2, and the green fuzzball will get another chance to convince Crisp to play Twister tonight when the two teams meet again at 8:10 p.m. EDT.
