The British are coming, the British are coming! No not that Revere! I'm talking about Ben Revere. Ruben Amaro Jr. was working hard through lunch on Thursday, as he acquired the exciting young Minnesota Twins CF Ben Revere for fan favorite Vance Worley and AA pitching prospect Trevor May. Ben Revere is a 24-year-old outfielder with track speed and a dynamite glove. He is coming off a season in which he hit a solid .294 with 40 steals in 49 attempts in 124 games. Revere is a guy that will give you similar production to that of coveted Michael Bourn, but at a fraction of the price ($492,000 in 2012 ) . I personally love this trade. The only thing that has me worried is now is the Phillies have a lot more stock in the right arm of Kyle Kendrick, and I'm not sure that's such a good thing !
