07:13 AM ET 09.16 | If you're Hunter Pence, a sizzling September couldn't come at a better time. The Giants and Pence have had preliminary contract talks, as Heny Schulman (@hankschulman) of the San Francisco Chronicle reported, and it's clear they're going to try to keep the player who helped them win a second World Series championship with his "triple double" hit and inspirational speech, and then followed it with a big season (and especially month). But it won't be cheap. The Giants have the money, and they've showed they like to keep their stars. But the Rangers (a hometown team for Pence as he played at UT-Arlington), who will lose Nelson Cruz, and the Yankees, if they can eschew the original plan to get below the $189-million threshold, loom as threats.

Great news to hear if you are Hunter and his agent two or more teams battling over your services.

That is not a picture of Hunter Pence. Nice job SI.

Scutaro does a very poor imitation. His swing is too compact.

Pence won't be going anywhere... Giants would take such a public relations whipping by letting Hunter go, that there might be outright mutiny... Everything about Hunter is worth the money....
