I agree that Harang isn't worth much, but I'd rather have Holliday than Pence at this point.
Even if Holliday isn't traded, he has at least as much upside as Pence and he's likely to steal a few more bases. Since SBs seem to be one of the few weaknesses of your offense, it doesn't make much sense to take a slight downgrade in that category.
I'd stay put.

Just wanted to let you know we addressed your question specifically on the Cafe's fantasy baseball podcast, The Can of Corn, which is live now on Fantasy Cafe Radio - give 'er a listen and you'll get some answers!
I'd pass on this. Pence is still on pace for a similar season as Holliday, all things being equal. FWIW, I wasn't buying into a Harang bounceback into the season (basically saying that '06 and '07 were his peaks) and I don't see him being the sweetener to take the deal. Gamble on Holliday being dealt at or before the deadline.
