How well do Rays teammates and best buds Jake Bauers and Willy Adames really know each other?

Rays rookies Willy Adames and Jake Bauers have spent a lot of time together over the past few years. Both players were acquired by Tampa Bay back in 2014 in two separate trades -- Adames from the Tigers for David Price, and Bauers from the Padres for Wil Myers -- and have been teammates at four different levels since joining the Rays' organization.
Now, these two buddies are crushing it side-by-side in the bigs and have both played a crucial role in the Rays' August revival, with the team going 19-7 this month.

It's clear that Adames and Bauers consider themselves pretty tight friends, so we wanted to put their friendship to the test by having them participate in their own version of "The Newlywed Game."
Does Willy Adames know Jake Bauers' favorite non-baseball athlete? Does Bauers know Adames' least favorite food? Which coffee shop in the St. Petersburg area does the pair go to together all the time? Will their friendship survive this intense competition?
