Watch Brayan Pena fake out Brandon Phillips

The MLB season is long, and it has a lot of ups and downs. That means someone needs to keep things light in the clubhouse to keep things from becoming a drag, especially when a team is scuffling as the Reds have been lately.

Enter Brayan Pena, who wasted little time becoming a popular presence for Cincinnati.

He struck again last night as Brandon Phillips conducted a postgame interview with the FOX Sports 1 crew that broadcast the Reds’ 1-0 win over the Braves.

Sure, anybody can dump a bucket of water on someone, but what about tricking a man into thinking he’s about to get a cold bath? That takes talent, and Pena was up to the task.
