Orbit started messing with former Astro Luis Valbuena and very quickly regretted it

Before signing with the Angels as a free agent this offseason, Luis Valbuena spent two years with the Astros. There were plenty of good times, and even more good bat flips. So, when Valbuena returned to Minute Maid Park for L.A.'s series with Houston over the weekend, he received a warm welcome -- i.e., he was trolled by Orbit.
Orbit spotted Valbuena while he was warming up prior to the Angels' 12-6 win on Sunday, and decided to say hello with a frankly inexplicable series of dance moves. But alas, he'd forgotten the cardinal rule of the mascot arts: Always make sure you keep track of the T-shirt cannon.

Luckily, cooler heads prevailed (and Orbit quickly hit the deck), and no T-shirts were wasted.
