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.

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.


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

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


Worley and May??? lol... Brock... I just won the Revere Value argument.

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.

Wow, huge trade. Both guys seem to have upside. Good K/9 rates. Worley had successful bone chip removal in September. Injury bothered him last year. The year before he had very nice numbers.

Worley and May. I guess it's a good gamble. Worley could be a TJ guy soon and isn't really much more than a #4 but should eat innings, which we really need and is cheap. May walks a lot of guys but if he can get that under control .... he's a gamble but a worthy one, I suppose.

A crazy idea.... would Gardy Sizemore be a good pick up if signed on a make good contract or is he still hurt? I haven't heard anyone say they thought Hicks or the other guys would be ready this spring.

May all our prospects be All Stars and the beer be free.

I guess they have been dangling these two guys for a few days: http://www.csnphilly...9865&feedID=693

Good deal for both teams.

Regardless of how this plays out, I promise not to rip TR for this trade at any point down the line.

If this was the get for Revere, I'm kind of surprised we didn't get more for Span.

Revere for Worley straight up would have been a good trade.
Revere for May straight up would have been a great trade.

I can't believe we got both of these guys. Face it, Revere had maybe one year where he would be our best CF option. There is a good chance that by June he would have been back to a 4th OF anyways due to Hicks.
