More from Jon Heyman on Pence

The full piece from Heyman on Pence can be found here, where we learn that the Phillies aren't shying away from the Astros' asking price for Pence, though:

Current Astros management views him as the "favorite of the franchise," however, and just the right type of player to set an example for a young team.

The Astros are apparently shopping Wandy and Myers harder, though one "competing executive" says that the Astros might end up having to pay half his salary to get a deal done. Makes you feel good that they didn't pull the trigger on him, or Myers, this time last year, right?
