HometownHero, Revere is kind of a home town boy (he's from Lexington, KY), so maybe he's related to you - or maybe not? Regardless, I think you way over value the market value of Revere. And those who follow the Twins agree with me (see: http://www.startribune.com/sports/tw...177464591.html
). Revere could potentially be 4th on the depth chart of Twins CF options (behind Span, Aaron Hicks, and Joe Benson). If Ben Revere is just too good to put in a trade for Homer Bailey, then the Reds better just forget about it and go with what they have because the CF market is just too expensive (on the other hand, if that's the case, maybe the Reds can get at least a bucket of balls for Stubbs).
Nevertheless, while we do certainly disagree about Revere's market value, where I actually do agree with you is in your affection for Revere as a CF option. I love guys at the top of the batting order who don't strike out (e.g., Juan Pierre) - but I understand that I may overvalue these kind of players due to my borderline obsession with strikeouts. So, while you and I (and I'm sure others) like Revere, I don't think the market as a whole feels the same way.
