Now looking back that trade was terrible , we could use that 1st base prospect.
Where would he be playing once Howard got back?

I don't think the trade for Pence was that bad value wise, I think it was bad because they bought high and sold low and only kept him for pretty much one season. The kids they gave up though were ok. Singleton has a shot to become something, but Cosart was always a low K high BB pitcher. Singleton hurts to give up but he hasn't been that good in AAA, and I don't know when he would have made it to the majors here.
