Ex-Yankee Phil Hughes Windmill-Dunks On Rays With Masterful Troll Job

Alright, we’ll say it: Phil Hughes is better at tweeting than he was at pitching.

(That’s not necessarily a dig at his pitching resumé, which is solid; rather, it speaks to how great of a Twitter follow Hughes is.)

Hughes late Monday retweeted a clip from an “MLB: The Show” Players League matchup between Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Blake Snell and Baltimore Orioles outfielder Dwight Smith Jr. The video featured Snell, using the Rays, hitting a home run over the left field fence at virtual Tropicana Field. However, there was something off about the clip, which Hughes used as an opportunity to execute a masterful troll job.

Thoughts and prayers to Rays fans.

The Players League continues Tuesday night, with Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez among those set to participate. You can click here for scheduling and streaming information.
