Rays have fun with old Aaron Judge tweet
Tampa Bay can never pass up an opportunity to clown their division rivals.
The Rays, who will be hosting the New York Yankees for a three-game series starting on Monday, took some time to troll Yankees slugger Aaron Judge on Sunday. They dug up an old tweet that Judge sent back in October 2013 where he said that he was going to a Rays playoff game.
I'm going to a rays game tomorrow! #playoffbaseball

The team then quoted Judge’s tweet, leading to this funny post:
See you tomorrow, man! https://t.co/OjXM01ErWE

Judge had sent the tweet when he was only 21 years old, having just been selected by the Yankees in the 2013 MLB Draft. For their part, the Rays were playing in the ALDS against the Boston Red Sox at the time, where they lost in four games (and have yet to make the playoffs since).
The tweet is probably even funnier now that the Yankees have a comfortable hold on the first AL Wild Card spot and Tampa Bay is a distant 9.5 games behind the Seattle Mariners for the second spot. That being said though, the Rays also had another phenomenal troll job on the Yanks earlier this season.
