Yeah, there was really no choice for me not to make a Pence custom a few days after the trade. Which is to say I'm happy about it. Sure, it'snot like we need all those outfielders, but Pence is still a great choice for a speedy power player, and I'm glad we have him. It's funny, because the last time the Astros made the playoffs Hunter was still in the minors, and Roger Clemens was still with the team. Of course, the last time the Phillies made the playoffs Vance Worley was still in the minors, and Jamie Moyer was still with the team. But times have changed, and now Pence is most likely headed to the playoffs...unless we completely bomb the next few months.
