On this topic... My interest meter is pegging. I'll be sad to see him go but all for it if it brings back a decent arm.

Edit: Just checked MLB Trade Rumors... They are saying it's done... Revere to Philly... They haven't revealed what we got in return.

[h=1]Sources: Phillies Acquire Revere[/h] The Phillies will not leave the Winter Meetings empty handed.
Multiple sources confirmed to MLB.com this morning the Phillies have acquired outfielder Ben Revere in a trade with the Minnesota Twins. It is unclear who the Phillies have sent to the Twins as part of the trade, but the Twins have been looking for pitching.
Revere hit .294 with 13 doubles, six triples, 32 RBIs, 40 stolen bases and 70 runs scored in 511 at-bats last season. He also carried a .333 on-base percentage and a .342 slugging percentage.
“If they get him, based on what’s available, they did all right,” one high-ranking American League executive said this morning. “He’s a solid average player. That’s how I look at him. He’s above average defensively. He can run. My biggest question, considering his size (5-foot-9, 170 pounds), is if he can play 145, 150 games. But he puts the ball in play better than I thought he would.”
An official announcement could come later today.

MLB Rumours just stated that the Phillies have acquired Revere.


Holy crap. My excitement is through the roof.

It says the Twins were interested in Vance Worley.

always thought ben was average at best. seems like a nice guy and I'm sure he'll do well as most players do when they leave the Twins. I am kind of excited to see if they dig into the minor leagues a little early. I'm all for it. If you can't compete this year start getting these guys some experience before 2014-2015 to work the kinks out a little bit. Maybe?

Sounds like it's Worley and possibly a prospect.

While I'm concerned about his elbow, Worley's K/9 and HR/9 are pretty good. I have to think (hope) his struggles the last two months were due to his elbow and that he's recovered.

Trevor May?

BA #69 prospect?

That alone seems like it would have been enough for Revere.

Very good return for Revere, I'd start shopping Willingham right now as well.

This is very nice now that I see May is included. I was concerned that we were just getting Worley and he would need TJ within a year.

I tend to think Ben is a better player than many folks here think. I might be wrong, but I think he will continue to improve his BA...still a good trade for both teams.
