The Philadelphia Daily News' Paul Hagen says that the Phillies might as well go ahead and get Pence:
The Phillies are hooked, addicted to going to the World Series sellout crowds and the regular-season sellouts that result. Teams don't construct a roster with a $170 million payroll just to make it to the playoffs. For the Phillies, just making the first round is so 2007.
In for a dime, in for a dollar...
...But there's no doubt who Plan A should be: Hunter Pence, of the Astros.
