Mike Clevinger may spend his mound visits discussing cereal mythology

Phil Hughes gave up a big home run to Brewers All-Star Christian Yelich and sarcastically insisted he just got lucky:

Indians rookie Shane Bieber was not impressed with Trevor Bauer's walk-off celebration:

Cardinals rookie Harrison Bader doesn't quite know what he's doing while taking his lead at first base, but he is amused by it:
