Shelby Miller was recently moved from the St. Louis Cardinals starting rotation to the bullpen, a move which is generally considered a demotion. Based on the amount of fun the relievers seem to be having though, it is hard to see it as a punishment.

Miller's new bullpen mates made their newest member undergo a rite of initiation before the team's 4-3 loss to the Dodgers Sunday night by taking part in a "fall of trust" off of a wall at Busch Stadium.

The only person more nervous about this exercise than Miller was likely the team doctor.
