Pence is 30, that is not old. his career numbers Avg. .283 OBP. .336 SLG .473

Even in a down year he is on pace for 37 doubles 7 triples 24 HR’s 83 RBI’s 89 runs and 24 steals. Not sure what you guys are looking at but Pence is a HUGE upgrade on what we have in RF.

Again, I would not give one of our top prospects but I would give a 2nd tier one at a position we are deep at.

Pence could easily still improve on the year as his career numbers are much better. We need another run producer with some pop and clutch hitting. Pence has proven to be that in his career. Tabata AHH NO

Pence: .265/.307/.455

They’re actually about equal, with Pence providing power and Tabata providing on-base skills.

And as I said, Tabata’s is a small sample and might not continue. But it’s not like Pence is a great hitter right now.

Hunter Pence is a HUGE upgrade on Jose Tabata, it is not even close. You actually said Tabata is a better hitter than Pence right now. What am I missing?? Tabata has a couple good games off the DL aided by weak ground ball hits and suddenly he is better than Pence?? In my opinion Tabata is a decent and I repeat decent 4th outfielder in the majors and that is it.

I am not saying give up one of our big time top prospects but I would try to get him. Personally I think acquiring Pence, Rios or Morales would give us a great shot at the division.

Illogical yes but hilarious

The Giants are probably going to want to get some type of return similar to what they paid for Pence.

Pence is a 3 fWAR player over the past year. That’s a nice upgrade.

Does Snider have trade value?
