The guy can't even play 3B and you want him at 2B?

A trade for the worst defensive 3B in the league neccessitates trading away a gold glove caliber SS? If anything, the exact opposite of this statement is true.

Good thing he had a 66.9% GB rate last year... the highest rate EVER* statistically recorded by a batter in a full season.

Hm... I am okay with the deal (mostly because I don't think Worley+May is a big loss), but let's not be disingenuous here. During his first 3 years in the league he has only drawn 57 BBs in 1064 ABs... roughly one walk every 20 ABs... also roughly 1 walk every 4-5 games. His eye is not good.

Honestly... the Phillies could have theoretically let Gillies come up and hit a .600 OPS (compared to a likely .650-.700 for Revere) for arguably better defense than Revere for the same price, so in alot of ways the deal doesn't make a ton of sense, imo.
