Why he didn't try harder to bring Michael Bourn back boggles my mind. Revere is an exciting guy because of his legs and glove, but he's got a terrible arm.
Bourn's looking for a contract north of $100 million, which probably priced him out of the Phillies' budget.
Revere can run really fast, but he takes terrible
routes on fly balls and, as you said, he has a cooked noodle for an arm. He's Juan Pierre 2.0, except Pierre actually had a little bit of pop. Revere somehow has zero home runs in more than 1,000 major league at-bats. In terms of value, he is well
below replacement level.
