MLB Network was fooled by a fake Ken Rosenthal tweet on Thursday. This is hilarious because Ken Rosenthal works for MLB Network.
There are plenty of “quality” fake Twitter accounts out there. We have fallen for phony tweets on more than one occasion and probably will again at some point. But hopefully LB would never fall for a fake Del tweet and vice versa — not that people like us enough to impersonate us.
Anyway, MLB Network on Thursday briefly gave life to a fake rumor about the Tigers and Rays finalizing a deal involving David Price and Ben Zobrist. The real Rosenthal quickly pointed out that the report came from a fake account and then had some fun with his co-workers when he went on the air.

As of now, Price remains with the Rays. Don’t let Ken_Rosenthal_ tell you any differently.
