FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: GIANTS AND PHILLIES TALKING SERSIOULY ABOUT HUNTER PENCE

The flood gates are open when it comes to the Philadelphia Phillies trading off assets and they are now in serious talks with the San Francisco Giants about Hunter Pence.  Wanting to beef up their hitting as they head into the playoff stretch, Pence became a name the Giants have zeroed in on in the last few days.  With the Phillies having so much money tied up in pitching, the team wants to shed payroll in order to get under the luxury tax number.

Analysis:  I still can't believe the Phillies want to trade Pence because he is the type of high impact hitter who is still young of age you would want to go into the future with.  That's what happens when you have Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, and Cole Hamels all signed to mammoth deals.  As far as Pence is concerned, he has had his typically low key solid fantasy baseball season but his ballpark would take a major hit in going to San Francisco if the deal takes place.
