You've Been Traded for a Hot Dog Eater

This gave me a good laugh last night. It's Phillies' second year rookie Kyle Kendrick getting pranked by his teammates. He was led to believe he'd just been traded to Japan for a player named Takeru Kobayashi.

Kobayashi is that Japanese dude who always owns everyone in the hot dog eating contest. Anyway, it was a well orchestrated prank given the fact that EVERYONE was in on it, including players, managers, agents and the media.
