SAN FRANCISCO (CBS Sports) — 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.

A year ago, Pence became an instrumental deadline-day acquisition for the San Francisco Giants, helping them to a second World Series title in three years, thanks to his “triple-double” hit, inspiring speeches and more. He could become a key pickup again.

Several other Twitter users piled on the prank, but Pence wasn’t buying this year’s trade.

With Pence a free agent after the season, it’s logical for him to go. “He’s available,” one rival GM said. “But they’re not going to give him away.”
