BEN REVERE NEWS

No-Hitter, Trade & Call-Ups

Congratulations to Cole Hamels, Jake Diekman, Ken Giles, and Jonathan Papelbon for combing to no-hit the Atlanta Braves today.  Hamels went 6 innings and each reliever pitched an inning apiece.  Hamels walked 5 batters, which created an elevated a high pitch count (108), so going the distance wasn't an option. Ben Revere has provided quite the performance, collecting 5 RBI...

Ryan Howard, Ben Revere, and RBIs

It’s a been argued over and over again, especially in Philadelphia, where Ryan Howard–one of the best RBI men in MLB over the years–calls home. And no, I’m not talking about whether to refer to multiple runs batted in as “RBI”, or “RBIs” (I’ll be using the latter in this post). I’m talking about the meaning of the stat. “RBIs don’t matter!”, say many believers...

Free Dom Brown (Again)

After last night’s 12-inning loss to the Cardinals, Domonic Brown made note of the fact that he hasn’t been playing every day. And he’s right–he’s had just 41 plate appearances and seven starts since July 30. He is dead last on the team with a -1.7 WAR (prior to last night’s game). He has a .613 OPS, and is hitting line drives at a lower rate than even Ben Revere. It’s...

Cards regroup to beat Phillies

It was a night when Cardinals rookie Oscar Taveras, who was benched recently for inattentive and indifferent baserunning, ran the bases with gusto and actually was even too aggressive. It was a night when the Cardinals’ bullpen was both awful and stunning in the same inning and then just as good for the next hour and a half. And it was a night when Phillies center fielder Ben...

Can Ben Revere Win The Batting Title?

All Placido Polanco Ben Revere does is hit. He’s been a hit machine recently, and has pushed himself up to 2nd in the NL in batting average, only behind Justin Morneau of the Rockies. But can he pass Morneau? Revere has been on an outstanding hot streak since June, leading MLB in average over that span. He also hasn’t struck out or walked much, either. Why he will win it Revere...

Giants Going “Series to Series,” Finally Get One at Home

San Francisco won a series at home, gained a game on the Dodgers, and got a win for Tim Lincecum when he didn’t have his best stuff as they defeated the Phillies 5-2 on Sunday. Lincecum looked anything but sharp, lacking control from the first batter of the game. Ben Revere singled to lead off the top of the first, but luckily for Lincecum, was thrown out by Andrew Susac trying...

The Timberwolves do the right thing

The thing about a good trade for a bad team is that it’s going to hurt at the moment. It hurts to see what little talent the team has go elsewhere for projects and future potential. Think about what the Twins have done lately: Denard Span and Ben Revere were dealt in the same offseason, and center field has been a wasteland since. On the other hand, the return was a pair of pitchers...

Ben Revere Slowly, But Surely Improving

#452936138 / gettyimages.com Let's forget about the depression over no moves being made at the deadline for a minute and focus on a player that could, perhaps, be hitting his stride. We all know the issues Ben Revere has. He can't hit for power, is impatient at the plate and...

Giants Drop Finale in Philly, End Road Trip 5-2

San Francisco tied it up in the top of the fifth when Gregor Blanco led...

Grady Sizemore Starts In CF For Phillies Tonight

The Philadelphia Phillies have called up former Red Sox outfielder Grady Sizemore from AAA—and he will start in center field tonight. Ben Revere—the primary starter at that position—is out with an injury. In 11 games for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Sizemore batted .283 with one HR and a .723 OPS. It will be interesting to see if his stay at Citizens Bank Park is as long as...

First-Inning Utley Homer Helps Power Hamels, Phils Beyond Brewers

Ben Revere kick started the first inning with a single up the middle, advanced on an Andres Blanco sac bunt, and stole third base. A pretty exciting sequence events was topped off by a line-drive homer by Chase Utley, his seventh of the season and first since June 26 to put the Phils up 2-0. That was almost all the Phillies needed. Ryan Howard would plate in the third on a single...
