Nationals, Blue Jays Sensibly Swap Storen, Revere

Nats Trade Drew Storen To Jays For Ben Revere

Jon Heyman is reporting that the Washington Nationals have dealt former closer Drew Storen to the Toronto Blue Jays in return for outfielder Ben Revere. Not a bad deal for both sides. I like Revere, he puts the ball in play and runs like crazy. He slashed at a .306/.342/.374 clip last season with 31 steals for the Blue Jays and Phillies. A former first round pick, Revere stole 49...

Ben Revere: ‘My manhood kind of got hurt a little bit’ on great catch (video)

Philadelphia Phillies: Ben Revere is not the answer

A few short seasons ago the Philadelphia Phillies’ center fielder could track down fly balls with ease, gun down runners for an out, and had quite a few memorable home runs.  Now, things could not be more different.  After the Phillies shipped off Shane Victorino in 2012, they acquired Ben Revere in hopes that they found their new center fielder, but Revere has failed to live...
