Pence could be "the best position player traded"

Sporting News' Anthony Witrado has nice things to say about Hunter Pence, while explaining that many people don't know who he is, because of the Astros:

If Hunter Pence is made available, look out. There will be a whirlwind of scouts racing to Houston Astros games and phone calls to Houston GM Ed Wade. Pence would immediately become the most sought-after bat on the trading block and could be the impact bat that could change a division race. Not many people get a chance to see Pence because he’s played for an awful team most of his career, but this guy is legit and he showed why during the All-Star Game.
