Ashley Chavez Reacts to Hunter Pence Trade

Tuesday, July 31, 2012 10:56 PM

As a Giants fan, I have always been deathly afraid of Hunter Pence. That guy can hit everything, and hit it crazy hard. When you get a Pence line drive coming your way, you better brace your face, no pun intended. Oh, and did I mention he also has the scariest, most-awesome batting stance ever? Because he does; just ask Batting Stance Guy, Gar Ryness.

Beyond all that, he is an old-school type of player who doesn’t wear batting gloves, he hustles for everything and has a cannon for an arm. He’s definitely a personality, and everyone says he’s a great addition to any clubhouse.

For all those reasons, Pence has been one of my favorite players for a while now, I was so sad when we didn’t have a chance to snag him last year at the trade deadline. After the Giants’ acquisition of Pence this afternoon, however, I don’t have to worry about what might have been, and it seems the entire Giants family is pretty stoked on the move as well. Hunter, we hope you had a smooth flight, and we can’t wait to see you in black and orange. Welcome to San Francisco!
