Not long ago a Twitter account belonging to @Evan_P_Grant_ Â tweeted that Michael Young has rejected the trade to the Philadelphia Phillies. Â I, and many other people following the story today (including MLB Network), believed this was a legitimate report from Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News.Â
What we failed to note was that extra _ in the handle. Evan Grant’s actual Twitter account is @Evan_P_Grant and the Michael Young report was simply made up by somebody bored today. (Looks like Twitter has already deleted the fake account.) Â But before most people realized what was going on, upset Phillies fans were reacting to the (fake) news.
Take the jump to see what some of them had to say. Warning: Adult Language:
