Hunter Pence is no longer a part of the Philadelphia Phillies organization, as he was dealt Tuesday to the San Francisco Giants in exchange for catching prospect Tommy Joseph and outfielder Nate Schierholtz. The news didn't come as much of a shock to most, as trade rumors involving Pence have been swirling for days. The news, however, was a bit of a surprise to Pence who spoke to CSNPhilly.com after the trade become official.
"I am surprised," said Pence. "Talking to Reuben, you understand the circumstance. And, I have nothing but great memories here in Philly. I am nothing but grateful for the opportunity to play."
"Overall, it was a great experience."
