Twitter Executed a Pretty Impressive Trade Deadline Trolling of Hunter Pence Last Night

Tens of Phillies fans took to Twitter on Monday night to have some fun with former Liscio’s Bakery spokesman and general hungry dude Hunter Pence. The idea was spawned by Friend of the Level and interviewer of The Iron Sheik, FanSince09. He’s evil.

FanSince09‘s idea was a simple one:

The use of pointless hashtags was an #important part of the execution:

And the rest of the crowd joined in on the fun:

Hunter seemed to take it like a pro:

A big shoutout to the SBNation folks for rounding up all of the above tweets. Go look at this GIF of Chad Qualls failing miserably at a routine fist pump to make up for our straight swiping.

As for the Red Sox, Beerleaguer seems to think the Phils made the right move in holding on to Cliff Lee if Boston wasn’t willing to part with Xander Bogaerts.

What’s for lunch?

    Still just as funny as it was last night. Wait. It wasn’t funny then either.

      Would of been funnier if the trade was between San Fran. and Philly for right feild protege Delmon “the great” Young.

        I wish it were. Too bad he doesn’t have a Twitter account. I would have participated if that were the case.

    I think it was an inspired prank. I bet it worked for a while. He probably dialed his agent in a frenzy and then acted like you *almost* got him.
