Hello and happy Friday.
Hunter Pence has been retired for less than a week, and he’s already become a flawless San Francisco Giants fan, just as we all knew he would. And on Thursday — not for the first time this year — the coffee company run by he and his wife, Alexis, released a baseball-themed coffee and mug, called, “Bay Area Homies.”
It’s outstanding, naturally. Check it out.

Nope. But then again, he didn’t play very many times on this date.
