Bedtime Pence update

A couple of quick notes before it's beddy-bye time.

UPDATE: Alright, one more. Jim Bowden sources a scout who says that the Astros' asking price is Cosart, Singleton, and Trevor May.
Hunter Pence admitted to Brian McTaggart that tonight could have been his final game in an Astros' uniform:

“What can I say? I’m not in control. I love these guys, I love Houston. That’s all I know.”

Where he ends up is of course all speculation. But Jayson Stark has some ideas.

The Phillies are reportedly still building a package around Jarred Cosart and Jonathan Singleton, but the Astros want two more high-end prospects.

The Braves have a package ready built around "highly regarded" pitching prospects, but none of them that go by the name of Julio Teheran.

Stark also mentions the six teams, but not the "three NL/three AL" teams of earlier. Stark's six teams are the Phillies, Braves, Reds, Pirates, Indians, and Red Sox.
