I admit it. I really like the celebrity softball game. - Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

Because this time... it counts.

[Adam Wainwright is headed to the table when he is beckoned over by Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw sits in the middle of the table with Yasiel Puig on his right and Zack Greinke on his left.]

KERSHAW: Shut up.

WAINWRIGHT: Thanks.

KERSHAW: You think you are a really good pitcher?

[A.J. Burnett walks by.]

KERSHAW: Oh, A.J. I love your curveball. Where did you learn it?

BURNETT: Oh, it is something my grandpa taught me in the 80s.

KERSHAW: Oh vintage, so adorable. [Burnett walks away.] That is the ugliest f-ing curveball I have ever seen. So, Waino, we would like to invite you to sit with us for the rest of the week. [Wainwright starts to object.] Coolness. So we'll see you tomorrow.
