The Chicago Cubs were no-hit by Cole Hamels on Saturday, and the team’s Twitter account got very passive aggressive. 

Cole Hamels has had a rough season with the Philadelphia Phillies but that hasn’t hurt interest in him on the trade market. The Phillies are expected to trade him before the deadline passes on Friday, and Hamels last start with the team was one for the ages.

On Saturday afternoon at Wrigley Field, Hamels no-hit the Cubs and gave the Phillies some serious weight to throw around in trade talks moving forward. Not everyone was happy about the no-hitter though, as the Cubs were less than thrilled they were no-hit at home for the first time in roughly 50 years.

As a result, the Cubs got extremely passive about the no-hitter on social media when it came to recapping the game.

While they didn’t outright ignore the no-hitter, they buried the lede in the most hilarious way possible.

This is to say, Hamels may have no-hit the Cubs but he did not get a perfect game. To be fair, the Cubs official Twitter account did acknowledge the no-hitter on social media but remained as passive as possible about it.

It’s hard to say what the no-hitter will do for the trade value of Hamels, since it’s more of a flukey occurrence than a way to judge a pitchers consistency — but it can’t hurt. Meanwhile, the Cubs will continue to be as passive as they possibly can be about being no-hit for the first time since 1965, but who can blame them?

The real kicker about all of this is the Cubs could follow up on Hamels no-hitting them by trading for him before the deadline passes on Friday.
