Was the Rockets' mascot's visit to Minute Maid Park friendly or is he trying to steal Orbit's thunder?

Clutch, the mascot for the Houston Rockets, attended Sunday's A's-Astros game at Minute Maid Park. The jersey-clad bear hung out with fans and roamed around the stadium.

But was this "friendly" visit really all in good fun? Did anybody tell Orbit about Clutch's visit? How does Orbit feel about someone of this ilk hanging out with his fans? 

I mean, if looks could kill (and Orbit could frown).
