With Beltran gone, interest in Pence picks up

Interest in Hunter Pence has picked up considerably, even as some rival officials continue to doubt that the Astros will trade their All-Star outfielder.

With Carlos Beltran now off the market, the Braves, Phillies, the Reds and many other teams have spoken to the Astros about Pence, a 28-year-old who has emerged as the face of the franchise in Houston. Pence has a .307 batting average and 62 RBI, and his value is enhanced by the fact that he won't be a free agent until after the 2013 season.

Earlier in the week, the Astros were telling people that it was much more likely Pence would be dealt this winter, rather than this week. But with interest increasing, some people involved in the talks now believe a deal could get done.

Some rival officials, though, continue to doubt that the Astros will complete a trade, saying that outgoing owner Drayton McLane won't permit it.

McLane has an agreement to sell the Astros to Jim Crane, but that deal still awaits MLB approval, so McLane remains in charge. Many in baseball expect Crane to change general managers once he takes over, so there is also doubt that he and McLane would allow Ed Wade the authority to trade their most valuable asset.

The Braves and Phillies both have interest in adding an outfield bat. Besides Pence, the Braves have discussed Ryan Ludwick with the Padres and Josh Willingham with the A's. They have also long had interest in Carlos Quentin of the White Sox.

Wow, what a haul.  Good thing, now they can use Kendrick and Martinez to get Matt Kemp instead.  Still can't believe the Mets didn't grab Schneider and Heilman for Beltran when they had the chance.
