Orbit was bummed that Chris Archer was injured and unable to continue their prank war

Astros mascot Orbit and Rays pitcher Chris Archer have long been engaged in a prank war. It's baseball's version of Ali-Frazier except with inflatable mascots and fart signs instead of fists. However, as any prank perpetrator knows, the jokes come from a place of love and friendship. 
So, with Chris Archer currently on the DL and unable to continue his war with Orbit during this week's Rays-Astros series, the green and fuzzy alien was understandably distraught. 

Chris Archer was bummed to miss out, though he did give his blessing for Orbit to hassle some of the other Rays: 

We'll know things are right in the world when Archer and Orbit are up to their hijinks again.
