My excitement is palpable.

Literally. I think I just crapped myself.

I really did not see that coming but depending on the return I don't really disagree.

Amazing to think about
1) what did they get for him?
2) who will roam our OF come opening day? Arcia? Roberts? Hicks? or do they go Mastro and make us wait longer on the kids?

I have the feeling Ryan wouldn't give away a cost-controlled player without a significant return.

Worley and a 'good pitching prospect'

I'm not sure Worley should be considered a significant return but he should be a solid #3/4 to stop the bleeding. Interesting stat that troubles me is that while he has a decent K rate he has an awful swinging strike rate.

Mid-high level crapping has commenced! Not that excited about Worley in particular, but incredibly excited that we were able to get that kind of value in exchange for Revere. Well played, TR. Well played.

MLBTR is reporting that a "good" prospect was also included.

If true, that is ONE HELL of a haul for Revere.

Trevor May is prospect. Good upside but a mess mechanically according to prospect361 but I'm happy with the deal. Revere was solid but not that good nor should he have been considered a long term part of the team.

A week ago, I don't know that Revere could have fetched either of them by himself. Timing is everything. Awesome.

Worley steps into the rotation immediately. May ought to be ready shortly as well.

As far as CF goes, unless the Twins acquire another one, it looks like Hicks is the guy now.
