Miguel Sano used a rubber snake to scare the living daylights out of pitching coach Neil Allen

Things have been going well for the Minnesota Twins. Entering Sunday's eventual 15-inning loss the Rays, they were 26-19 and in first place in the AL Central. Everybody -- players, fans, coaches -- is in a good mood. Pitching coach Neil Allen was in a really good mood -- doling out high-fives in the dugout to anybody who wanted one. 

Miguel Sano, nearly as a good a prankster as he is a tater masher, decided this would be the perfect time for the ole rubber snake trick. It's even more beautiful in GIF form:

We can just see Allen lying on a clubhouse table after the game now ...
