This is a story from PhillyBurbs.com, where we get a random, telling little tidbit:
Starting pitcher Roy Halladay said on Friday night that Pence and he had a brief conversation at the All-Star Game about possibly joining the Phillies.
"He asked about how I liked it here (in Philly)," Halladay said. "For me, it has been everything that I thought it would be. I think he's going to be excited to come here and play. We talked about some of the players we had with Chase Utley, and the guys he has tried to model himself after. I think he's going to be a real good fit."
