Heyman insisting Pence won't be traded

Jon Heyman has some trade deadline notes:

Incoming owner Jim Crane has given word to cut the payroll to $60 million. But word is, Crane himself at one point has suggested keeping Pence. If that's true, it's hard to imagine embattled GM Ed Wade taking the chance to trade him.

The Astros are, however (according to Heyman), trying to trade Myers and Wandy, but as one rival GM noted, "No one will touch Wandy."
