White Sox take to Twitter to troll Nolan Arenado trade buzz


The White Sox tweeted out news of their latest acquisition Friday.

And no, it's not Nolan Arenado.

In a seeming response to a Twitter user's insistence of an impending trade that would bring Arenado to the South Side, the White Sox tweeted out their own batch of "breaking news," going as far to mimic that Twitter user's handle of @MLBIntel.

The Twitter user in question gained some internet fame days earlier, when tweets about the Boston Red Sox trading superstar Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers were proven correct hours later.

Thursday night, this person was at it again, tweeting that the White Sox had a deal in place to acquire Arenado, the perennial MVP candidate, from the Rockies, going as far to say that Arenado had a meeting with team chairman Jerry Reinsdorf.

But that was followed up by numerous reports — including one from our own David Kaplan — debunking the Arenado-to-the-White Sox idea.

Now the White Sox, however subtly, seem to be joining that chorus with this tongue-in-cheek string of tweets.

The result of all of this: Anyone else feeling hungry?
