Francisco Cervelli used hilarious, not-so-sutble pick-off sign against Anthony Rizzo

Francisco Cervelli

This is the funniest thing you will see all day. Sunday against the Cubs, Pirates first-rounder Jameson Taillon was on the mound throwing to Francisco Cervelli.

A typical day, right? Well yes, but that was until Cervelli noticed All-Star Anthony Rizzo taking a big lead at first.

Instead of the typical and stealthy sign options he could have given, he made the situation very obvious by letting Taillon know to try and pick off Rizzo.

And it was hilarious. The ten-year veteran pointed to first without any hesitation.

Too bad Taillon wasn’t paying attention.

Let’s just say we all know Cervelli’s sign now. The secret is out.
