At last season's trade deadline, Hunter Pence was traded from Philadelphia to San Francisco, and promptly helped the Giants win the World Series. But this season, the Giants stink. So was another trade in the works?
Officially, no. Pence stayed put in San Francisco. But that didn't stop pranksters from tweeting out he was headed to Boston. And their efforts were rewarded, as Pence eventually responded.
Here is how it started.
Ok, 1130pm we all start tweeting Hunter Pence to congratulate him on the trade to Boston.
