Reds' Phillips tries the old pull-the-foot-off-the-bag trick after Marte steal (VIDEO)

After Starling Marte legitimately stole second base, Brandon Phillips tried pulling one of the oldest tricks in the book to get the Pirates baserunner out — the old pull-the-foot-off-the-base gag.

While Phillips' prank play was pretty obvious, he still tried to sell it to veteran second-base umpire Jerry Lane who saw the whole thing go down.

All he got was some laughs from Marte and a finger-wag from Lane.

That's a no-no in any ump's book.
