April Fools 2013 OT

So there's no confusion(but then again, maybe there will be) I thought since I was off today and will be glued to the tele starting now, with the FA Cup replay between ManU and Chelsea, I'll slam down a separate thread for today's MLB games. Think of it as a Opening Day GDT for the rest of the league. So much win in some of those matchups.(Kershaw/Cain, whaaaa?!)

Anyways, here's some funny shit that went down today. Try not to laugh at all the misery(with one exception) that took place....
