    My excitement is palpable.

    Literally. I think I just crapped myself.

    I really did not see that coming but depending on the return I don't really disagree.

    Amazing to think about
    1) what did they get for him?
    2) who will roam our OF come opening day? Arcia? Roberts? Hicks? or do they go Mastro and make us wait longer on the kids?

    I have the feeling Ryan wouldn't give away a cost-controlled player without a significant return.

    Isn't he injured? Or did I read that wrong?

    I'm not sure Worley should be considered a significant return but he should be a solid #3/4 to stop the bleeding. Interesting stat that troubles me is that while he has a decent K rate he has an awful swinging strike rate.

    A good minor league pitching prospect is also headed to Minnesota in the trade, tweetsScott Miller of CBS Sports

    Mid-high level crapping has commenced! Not that excited about Worley in particular, but incredibly excited that we were able to get that kind of value in exchange for Revere. Well played, TR. Well played.

    MLBTR is reporting that a "good" prospect was also included.

    If true, that is ONE HELL of a haul for Revere.
