Pitcher PJ Conlon was drafted by the Mets in 2015, then claimed off waivers by the Dodgers almost exactly three years later, on June 2nd, 2018, only to be claimed by the Mets again four days later.
At the time of the first trade, Conlon tweeted his heartfelt thanks to the Mets organization:
A huge thank you to the Mets organization for everything over the past few years, especially the opportunity to fulfill my lifelong dream of playing in the Major Leagues. I’m excited for this next chapter with the #Dodgers and can’t wait to get started!

Pretty standard stuff.
Now, it’s not unusual for minor-leaguers or borderline major-leaguers to frequently be on-the-move, so Conlon (who did get 5.2 MLB innings under his belt before being claimed the first time) spared himself some time thanking the Dodgers.
With a few small edits to the original, Conlon put out the following tweet:
Wash, rinse, and repeat, PJ: until you’ve solidified yourself in the majors, you might want to hang on to that template (and perhaps share it with your friends).
