While I love him to death, I’m going to have to call out Orbit here. I’m always for a good prank, but I feel like Mike Trout’s back should be the last target when deciding who to tape an “I love the Astros” sign on.
First, Trout strikes me as one of the most gullible people in the universe. He’s ultra nice and doesn’t know much about other stuff besides baseball. That’s not to say he’s a dummy, but his entire life has revolved around being a superstar baseball player. Also, probably the wrong person to give any motivation to right before a game. I’m not saying Trout was angry at the prank, but he did hit a double and collect and RBI during the Angels’ win over the Astros.
