Con #2: Living in the past
While I certainly would enjoy seeing Pence in a Giants jersey once again, it would represent a nostalgic move when the front office seemingly wants to move in a non-nostalgic direction.
The acquisition of Sandoval seemed like a definite nostalgia move, but perhaps Zaidi and Kapler felt it would be a good idea to build a bit of goodwill with the fan base considering the last few months have been shaky at best from a public perception standpoint.
There is no ignoring that a Pence reunion would wreak of living in the past and would take away valuable playing time from up-and-coming players like Jaylin Davis and others.
Personally, I’d rather see Pence than Davis from a pure entertainment perspective, but I can certainly understand where those fans are coming from.
There are clear pros and cons to a reunion with former fan favorite Hunter Pence. It seems unlikely, but with Sandoval back in the mix, who knows?
