Orbit and Jose Bautista Play With Dolls — Wait, What?

That is really what happened before Saturday night’s Astros-Blue Jays game. Yes, the Astros won 8-2 in a game filled with insanity, home-run robbery, Altuve hustling home from first after two errors, home runs (by Castro and Carter), an inside-the-park home run for Jon Singleton and even an open roof in August (the roof was open in August for the first time since August 6, 2004). But one of the most entertaining highlights took place off the field before the game. When Orbit and Jose Bautista played with dolls. Really. Stay with me here as I bring you through the hilarious sequence of events.

Finally an article that answers the question “can baseballs be used as defibrillators?”

I rarely find anything that happens in MLB "cute"--but that, that is so very cute.

I thought this would be about William Orbit.

And, "No Sir, I didn't see you playing with your dolls again!"

They aren't dolls, they're action figures!

I concur that this is something to file in the "life is good" column.
