Nobody is having more fun during this year's spring training than the Chicago Cubs.

Of course, some of that fun comes at the expense of certain people. On Wednesday, it was Tim Buss, the Cubs' strength and conditioning coordinator, who found himself subjected to a little hazing.

According to's Jesse Rogers, one of Buss' duties is to loosen up the squad at the beginning of the workouts, which may include some teasing. He apparently went a little overboard Tuesday, because he found himself bound to a chair the next day.

If you can't do the time, don't do the crime. Fortunately, it appears Buss accepted his punishment in stride.

"They got me," Buss said, per Rogers.

It's not clear what exactly led to the disciplining of the strength coach, but Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reported that Buss said there were some weird circumstances involved:

Yeah, we're definitely going to need more details.
