Spring training is just a bit looser than the regular season.

Case in point: Chicago Cubs stars Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant were mic'd-up throughout Monday's Cactus League game against the Los Angeles Angels to often hilarious results.

Here's a selection of Bryzzo highlights.

Rizzo's got the voice of an angel 🎵

Rizzo's playlist is stocked with Selena Gomez, and he wasn't shy in showing off his pipes from the comfort of the dugout.

'Feeling a heater' 🔥

In a third-inning at-bat, Rizzo jokingly asked for a "bang" to help figure out what pitch to sit on. So, it's not only fans taking cracks at the Houston Astros for their sign-stealing scheme this spring, after all.

Eventually, he settled - correctly - on a heater.

Rizzo gave his own play-by-play and analysis while gearing up for a fastball. He also considered stretching it into a double before wisely holding back.

Bryant's gear isn't up to code ❌

Bryant was called out for being the only one not wearing the cap specifically designed for spring training.

'Is that his name?' 🤔

Bryant didn't know umpire Jeff Nelson's name when he took his first AB.

The former MVP blasted out of the gate on a foul ball, returning back to the box a little out of gas.

Rizzo reassured him that he was "setting a good example" by running out a pop-up, though.

Rizzo vs. Chipper 😂

A 7-year-old Rizzo - and his father - apparently heckled Atlanta Braves Hall of Fame third baseman Chipper Jones from the safety of the stands.

This game makes a great argument for mic'ing up players more consistently, though it probably wouldn't fly during the regular season.
