    I was truly looking forward to seeing Revere play CF all year. I love his hustle and his range. But if the price is right, maybe it makes sense to go with Hicks.

    What if Hicks bombs? Who would take over CF then? Benson?

    I would consider the Cincinnati Reds a better trade partner than the Atlanta Braves. The Braves just signed B.J. Upton and are looking for a corner outfielder. I have to believe that now is a great time to trade Revere because CF's are at a premium and going off the market fast. If the Twins traded Revere for a starting pitcher they could always start Darin Mastroanni until Hicks or Benson was ready. The Twins might have the best outfield prospects in the majors with Benson, Buxton, Hicks, Arcia, and Rosario. Also don't forget about Nate Roberts who was terrific in the AFL.

    Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com hears that the Twins might consider trading Ben Revere.

    It would be a strange move, given that they just cleared room in center field for Revere by dealing Denard Span. Even more bizarre is that Morosi says they would be looking for a center fielder in return. Revere has zero power but batted .294 with 40 steals in 2012 and also offers great defense. He's under team control through 2017.

    Depends what they are offered for Revere--but I don't think it will be much. He has little ML service time to place trust in--so it would be a "prospect-for-prospect" trade.

    For a pitcher Ok... For an OF'er... That don't make much sense.

    It would be the chance for Benson to step up with Hicks in the background at Rochester. Or the Twins could sign some low-end guy LIKE a Juan Pierre. Maybe bring back Delmon, who along with Liriano will make the dugout old home week. Hell, trade for Kubel and/or Cuddyer, too. Bring back Jon Rauch. If the price is right, you go for it...remember Carlos Gomez!!!!!!!!

    Revere is a great fielder, but Hicks has a few tools that Revere lacks. I would be alright with the trade as long as that what we would get in return would be at least a SP better than the potential free agents that they have been linked to during the beginning of this years winter meetings, not to high on Jurrjens' out there.

    Does moving Span and Revere cause the Twins to consider moving Rosario back to the OF? I hope not, I like him at 2B.

    If we can get a solid minor league pitcher I dont mind this at all. Leave it up to an open competition next year between Hicks/Benson or someone else. 2013 seems like a lost cause...total rebuilding year.

    Its tough trading with the Rays though, they have a great front office and they usually know what the hell theyre doing when it comes to trades. Most likely candidates would probably Braves and Reds. Maybe there is a wild card team out there who would like Revere.

    What the hell? I have to wonder if a Revere-Hermsen-Salcedo package would have worked in place of Span. I would rather have Span. And that would include trading Span later, potentially.

    Given the cost, I can't see them trading Revere now, as in this offseason.

    I wonder about Gardy's comment. OBVIOUSLY, from the get-go, Morneau was the best trade option. Watch where Hamilton goes, because if he leaves Texas and Michael Young is traded, Morneau would be very appealing to Texas.

    By the way, remember that flak given to the ST guy about a Young-Liriano trade? Hindsight . . .

    Twins need pitching and more pitching. If Revere brings a decent prospect go for it.
    Earlier list of outfield prospects missed Kepler.
