I guess that's why Philly stays competitve. I can't see why the Mets couldn't have traded for him unless Bourjos is in the cards by trading Dickey to Anaheim. Revere is a very nice pick up for the Phillies, cheaper and younger than Bourn. We need a guy who can cover alot of ground in the outfield and Revere would have fit the bill. Not an offensive juggernaut by any means but has much needed speed and is an excellent defender.
2. May is looking more and more like a bullpen guy (that could change, but he's headed that way...he just can't find strike zone)
3. WE have a young cost controlled centerfielder for years to come...He needs work getting on base a little more but he's only 24.
An excellent trade for you guys IMO. Young and very talented. I have been clamoring for Revere since last trade deadline thinking that Minnesota was going fishing early that the Mets would be smart and pick up Revere but alas I was disappointed. Somebody mentioned on here that he is a 24 year old Juan Pierre and I couldn't agree more.
^maybe you didn't notice, but Duda sucks and they wanted pitching. Familia is still just a prospect and not a very high ranked prospect. He BARELY cracks the top 100.
Taylor May isn't far behind Familia, plus they got Worley who isn't as bad as you're making him out to be. He had a good 2011 season and his 2012 season is very similar to the seasons Niese had in 2010 and 2011, Not completely terrible but not that great either.
Familia+Duda wouldn't have been better for MIN than Worley+May. Every analyst I've read or seen talk about this trade say PHL overpaid.
Anyways, I'm glad we didn't get him based on what PHL had to send. If it cost less, then sure I woulda taken Revere. I like what he brings.
