Re: Pence...sounds like a right-handed Jay Bruce at the plate. Not sure we need another streaky hitter. I would pass if it meant giving up more than a few C+ prospects.

Agreed on this road trip...such high hopes after demolishing the Giants and beating Greinke...the good news is there are 2 months of baseball left. The bad news is there are 2 months of baseball left.
