This week, a mini-trend was born when New York Mets fans started trolling San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence with silly signs that read "Hunter Pence Can't Parallel Park" and "Hunter Pence Hates Bacon" and so on.

Harmless fun, of course. It caught on in other cities too. Heck, MLB Network's Heidi Watney busted out a Hunter Pence sign on Thursday night's "Quick Pitch." It became a thing.

There are two ways to deal with trolls, as anyone who spends a decent amount of time on the Internet knows. Ignore or engage. The second is usually a bad idea. That's why people say, "Don't feed the trolls." Well, unless you can beat the trolls. And here's Pence doing just that.

Pence is humblebraggin' all over your Twitter feeds, opposing fans, so now what?

On the subject of Hunter Pence signs, though, The Stew feels compelled to share one last thing.

Well played, friends.
