Michael Lorenzen has a cooler party trick than you do, should probably go join the circus

Reds pitcher Michael Lorenzen is a man of many talents. Not only is he one of the more effective relievers in baseball, he's got legit home run power and could maybe be a two-way player if given the opportunity. He's also probably the most in-shape human being in baseball and has pulled off some pretty jaw-dropping athletic feats over the years. 

His most recent circus act might be his most impressive yet. While visiting the MLB Network studios earlier this week, Lorenzen succeeded in balancing a cup of water on his head and then getting it back onto the ground without using his hands. It's pretty nuts.

Lorenzen has done this maneuver before, but that was at home, on a carpet and not in a full suit. Whenever his baseball career is over, there's a good chance Lorenzen could find some work in a traveling circus. What an athlete.
