Twitter users try to trick Hunter Pence into thinking he was traded
Fans tried to trick one of their former favorite Phillies, Hunter Pence, into thinking he was traded to Boston.
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.
Ok, 1130pm we all start tweeting Hunter Pence to congratulate him on the trade to Boston.— FanSince09 (@FanSince09) July 31, 2013

Hunter Pence eventually noticed and responded.
