The trading deadline is today at 1pm pacific standard time. With 3 1/2 hours left till the deadline, news has broke that the San Francisco Giants have landed outfielder Hunter Pence. The 29-year-old Pence is not a rental player, and gives the G-men some pop in their lineup. He’s currently hitting .271 with 17 homers and 59 RBI.
Jim Bowden of ESPN says (via twitter) the deal does not include Gary Brown, Brandon Belt or Kyle Crick. The word going around at this time is catcher Tommy Joseph is the player going to the Phillies. This is a great move for the Giants. Catching is something the Giants have a premium of, so I’m all on board with this trade.
