I agree that Delmon is a poor OBP player, but he still delivers 20-30 HR a year which is still useful if the top 4 are all producing well.

And I think Revere is a solid #2 hitter.

Being allergic to walks and striking out a lot takes away from his lone offensive contribution (power). He's also a dreadful defender. Delmon had negative WAR last season for a reason. In fact he's had negative WAR in 3 out of his 6 full seasons. Delmon Young is a horrible baseball player.
