    I can't believe he'd cost too much.

    Just DFA Heisey and get it over with.
    Revere only makes sense IMO if you need a CFer.

    His value is largely speed and defense. Reds would be paying for CF ability they don't need.

    I don't see the fit.

    With Frazier and Mesoraco, I think the Reds have the RH thump covered OK.

    This would be adding another LHH and more speed (which they don't have outside BH) to the lineup.

    Revere doesn't walk much, but he strikes out much less frequently than anything they're running out there right now.

    Plus, he's only 26. It's not out of the realm of possibility that he has better years ahead. JMO.

    He could also slip into a 4th OF role when Winker comes up.

    Revere is a career 83 OPS+ hitter. He really doesn't add any offensive help at all.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Re: Alex Rios

    If we're wanting to pick up bench help from the Phillies, I'd target Reid Brignac. Sort of younger and cheaper version of Ben Zobrist, as far as being versatile and a product of the Rays system. Has played 2B, SS, 3B, LF and RF in the majors, and a little bit of 1B in the minors. Hits left-handed, so would be a good fit backing up Phillips, Cozart and Frazier. He has never fulfilled his once highly vaunted potential, but now, at age 28, he does seem to be figuring more things out at the plate. With the Phillies this season, he's posting a slash line of .269/.347/.418.

    Plays SS well enough that he could possibly platoon with Cozart to give us a little more pop out of that position in 2015.

    Good call. He's playing very well right now.

    Those are a pair of convincing arguments. I floated the idea of acquiring Red Brignac as a trial balloon, but now, I can see how this notion could transform into something more like a crusade, or dare I say, a juggernaut.

    Brignac is why they are willing to part with Rollins. Apparently they want to pair Brignac's wife with Utley's.
