Well, at the All-Star game, new Phillies OF Hunter Pence asked Roy Halladay what it was like to be on the Philadelphia Phillies. From Kevin Cooney at Phillyburbs.com:
Apparently, Pence had his eye on Philadelphia as well. Starting pitcher Roy Halladay said on Friday night that Pence and he had a brief conversation at the All-Star Game about possibly joining the Phillies.
"He asked about how I liked it here (in Philly)," Halladay said. "For me, it has been everything that I thought it would be. I think he's going to be excited to come here and play.
He must have known. The All-Star victory caused excitement for Pence:
By the way, the last two series the Phillies faced Pence in Philadelphia, Pence homered. He should fit right in.
Additionally, someone registered the twitter handle @hunterpence3 in anticipation of Pence's assigned number 3:
I still think Pence and Brown and the Phillies will work it out that Pence keeps #9 and Brown finally gets his preferred #3 when he returns from Lehigh Valley...
