Hunter Pence nearly learned in an awkward way that the Giants traded him: through Twitter.

Hunter Pence quickly became a fan favorite in Philadelphia because of his hard play, general quirkiness, and most famously his slogan, "Let's go eat!" which became jargon for Philadelphians.

Twitter user @FanSince09, who perfectly mocks the attitude of a Phillies fan jumping on the team's bandwagon following its 2008 World Series victory, organized a Twitter prank on Pence.

Fans followed @FanSince09's orders and started tweeting about Pence's fake trade.

Hunter Pence eventually noticed and responded.

After the Pence prank, @FanSince09 tried again with Phillies reliever Justin De Fratus which again drew a response.

If the Giants do want to trade Pence, the Yankees, Reds, Rangers and Pirates are all teams that could go after him.
