Phillies superstar Ben Revere is currently sporting a .471 OPS.

Hell of a fuckin' trade there, Rube.
I'm not sure what's happening with Revere. He had posted good numbers with the Twins in the couple years he was with them.
No, he really didn't. In 2011, Revere posted a 76 OPS+; last year, it was 89. So he wasn't really even anywhere near league average. Revere essentially has one core tool -- run really fast -- and beyond that, he's a slap hitter. It astounds me that with nearly 1,200 plate appearances in his career, he has yet to hit a single dinger.
Ok, by good I just meant better than he's doing this year (and better than some Twins are doing, save for the homeruns department). I don't follow OPS+ stats or what averages are.
