lol..... How in the world could you guarantee that? seems far fetched and Im not sure if youre being serious or not.
I wouldn't take the chance, sign him to a 3-4 year deal.
I am totally serious. First of all I dont want to overpay for Hunter Pence. Yes, he had a good first two months but he isnt worthy of a huge deal. Of course you cant guarantee that he would come back and that is the risk you would have to take. Quite frankly, I would rather take that chance than overpay him with a big deal right now. If I can get a very good prospect for Pence I would do that in a heartbeat.
