"Sick Fake" Jon Heyman Tweets False Greinke Trade

What happens when a person with clearly too much time on their hands decides to impersonate Sports Illustrated writer Jon Heyman on Twitter?

The baseball world found out Friday night when a fake tweet was sent out claiming that the Philadelphia Phillies had acquired Zack Greinke from the Kansas City Royals.

SB Nation and radio host Michael Kay ran with the story until the real Jon Heyman pointed out on Twitter that folks were being duped by an impostor.

“Some sick fake person tweeted under a name close to mine that greinkes going to phils,” Heyman tweeted. “Not true. Not even close to true.”

In case you’re wondering, the “sick fake person” changed the “I” in Sports Illustrated to a lowercase “L.”

Stop being bad, America.
