    Revere would have been perfect but the Phillies overpaid. We have to many holes to overpay.

    Fulmer is not "totally replacable". He's going to be our top pitching prospect once Wheeler graduates.

    Yea the most I would give up for Revere is Familia. The Phillies basically gave up Gee and Familia. Way too much IMO.

    Except better then Gee and Familia lol

    Singles hitter with an OBP of under .350. Not sure why we're getting worked up over this guy.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    Revere Should Have Been Obtained

    The Twins sold high on him.

    Familia; Tapia, and Urbina for Revere???
    Pretty fair deal for both sides, a guy w/ upside that may help out your team via the rotation for this year, and two starters that's a year or two away.

    Its moot now but no I wouldn't part with Familia and Tapia for a player like Revere.

    Agree, though I think May was over-rated as well. But Revere needs to continue to hit .290 to be a good regular. I think he might do that. But if he slips back to around .280, and doesn't improve the walks, than he's not necessarily much better than a guy like Torres.

    In order to acquire Rivera, meeting the Phillies offer with a matching comp might not have been enough, and SA would have to exceed it marginally at least.

    We don't know the Twins perception of the players they received from Philly or their perception of equitable players the Mets might offer. That could go either way.

    Does anyone remember Bombo Rivera? The name just snuck up on me. **** Im old.

    Bourn makes more sense for Philly who is in win in now mode or else. Revere is only 24 and fits our needs in the outfield more than Philly's. Philly should have brought back Victorino and seeing as they're adding another old vet in Michael Young possibly it doesn't make sense to have a young experienced outfield to go with a veteran infield.

    A 25-year old Juan Pierre would be the best OF on our team. Not trading for Revere was stupid.

    And Revere does have great speed, Not "some speed". He's very fast and takes outs away. With the amount of pitching that we have stacked in our system, a deal could have, and should have been done.

    Good for them. They addressed a need for starting pitching but then left them two outfielders short by getting rid of both Span and Revere.

    Speed and defense in the outfield, something we sure don't have. The guy hit over .290 last season and his glove is tremendous. If we could have traded Gee for him and the Mets passed they made a mistake.
