Ben Revere

  1. GIF: Ben Revere diving faceplant! And a sweet catch

    Apr 10, 2014, 10:01 AM EDT


    Ben Revere’s defense seems to be all over the place. He doesn’t seem to get great reads on balls hit towards him and sometimes he has enough speed to recover and make the play and sometimes he doesn’t. I didn’t think he was getting to this Lyle Overbay ball in the ninth. Still, for a…

  2. The Ben Revere pick-off play that probably cost the Phillies a win

    Apr 2, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT


    Lots of talk about managerial decisions after the Philadelphia Phillies’ 3-2 walk-off loss to the Texas Rangers on Tuesday. Ryne Sandberg left Cody Asche and Domonic Brown out of the lineup altogether in favor of righty vs. lefty matchups. The Phils skipper then proceeded to fail to pinch hit accordingly in opposite scenarios later on,…

  3. The Evster checks in with Ben Revere’s Twitter account

    ben ice cream

    When I was around 10 years old, I bumped into former Sixer and all-around terrible basketball player, Bob Thornton, at the Acme on City Line Ave. No seriously, I walked right into him. Like, right into his leg. I was looking for Skittles and he was waiting in line to buy ice cream and a…

  4. Dom Brown Will Wear His Dallas Cowboys Jersey with Pride and Subsequently Laugh at Philly Fans Outrage

    Sep 9, 2013, 1:05 PM EDT


    The only time I really questioned a professional athlete wearing an opposing team’s jersey was that one time Terrell Owens wore a Michael Irvin Cowboys jersey while T.O. was still a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. That one seemed a bit weird in the etiquette department. But T.O. and proper etiquette never really seemed to…

  5. Watch Ben Revere Spend Time in the Booth with T-Mac and Sarge

    Aug 8, 2013, 10:28 AM EDT


    Ben Revere is on the mend and spent a couple half innings in the booth last night with Sarge and T-Mac and it was fantastic. Mostly because Ben loves to talk which means Sarge and T-Mac have to keep quiet. You can watch almost 11 minutes of Phillies center fielder’s time in the booth over…

  6. Ben Revere Seems to Have Just Learned of Andrew Bynum’s Contract, And He’s Not Happy

    Jul 20, 2013, 9:16 PM EDT


    Ben Revere feels your pain, Philly fans. He’s also probably still feeling some of his own pain, with a broken foot that’s expected to keep him out for the next six to eight weeks. His use of “this dude” and not “mah dude” is a clear sign of judgment, one made all the better by…

  7. Ben Revere Busted It Down the First-Base Line on a Broken Foot

    Jul 14, 2013, 8:30 AM EDT


    Say what you want about these Phillies. They may be too old, make too many poor decisions, and simply may not have what it takes. You can’t say they weren’t trying their absolute hardest to win on Saturday though. I mean, Jimmy Rollins faceplanting into home to score a game-winning run wasn’t even the most…

  8. Did You Notice That Ben Revere Is Hitting Over .300 Now?

    Jul 10, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT


    What a difference a BABIP makes, huh? Ben Revere, the 25-year-old we gave up Vance Worley for in the off-season to be our center-fielder of the future, hasn’t looked like that much different a player the last month, but turn around and all of a sudden he’s hitting .302. This is no small feat for…

  9. Bizarro World: The 700 Club Does Feature On Phillies CF Ben Revere

    Jun 27, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT


    “Oh, you do that 700 Club website, right?” “Yeah, no. The 700 LEVEL. It’s not religious. I don’t run any nightclubs in Northern Liberties either.” I’ve had that conversation countless times. But it’s okay, people who have no idea what the 700 level at Vet Stadium was, I’ll forgive you. Not surprisingly, the short 700…

  10. Phillies Outlast Padres in 13 Innings Thanks to Unlikely Contributions

    Jun 27, 2013, 6:00 AM EDT


    The Phillies might want to send Logan Forsythe a thank-you note. After all, the Padres’ second baseman did gift-wrap this game for them. Forsythe was charged not one, but two errors on the same play, allowing the Phils to score not one, but two go-ahead runs in the 13th inning. Jonathan Papelbon was able to…

  11. Ben Revere Did Not Execute ‘Voluntary Release’ of Fly Ball

    Jun 24, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT


    What are the odds that another outfielder was having his “catch” ruled a live ball for the exact same reason on the exact same day as the controversial Ben Revere play? Probably astronomical, but it also happened to the Red Sox in Detroit on Sunday. Here’s the video. Daniel Nava makes a basket catch at…

  12. No, Ben Revere, This Is Not a Catch

    Jun 23, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT


    Maybe Jayson Stark should have given the rules quiz to Ben Revere. The Phillies’ centerfielder played a lazy fly ball a bit too casually on Sunday, the end result of which was the umpire correctly ruling the batter safe. Revere positioned himself under Juan Lagares’ pop fly during the top of the fifth inning for…

  13. Dom Brown Delivers With Ninth-Inning Walkoff, Makes Jonathan Papelbon Very Happy

    Jun 17, 2013, 10:57 PM EDT

    MLB: Washington Nationals at Philadelphia Phillies

    This one had “bummer” written all over it. The Phillies scrapped to a 4-2 lead through five, and Antonio Bastardo cleaned up a Mike Adams-induced eighth inning jam to get the ball to Jonathan Papelbon in the 9th with a one-run lead still in tact. Pap’s perfect season looked to remain in tact with an…

  14. Did the Phillies Fleece the Twins on the Ben Revere Trade?

    Jun 15, 2013, 1:45 PM EDT

    Ben Revere

    The Phillies gave up two players – an 11-game winner and a prospect – to acquire Ben Revere, a shaky centerfielder with a .304 on-base percentage and zero power. Apparently in Minnesota that’s considered stealing. Tom Powers, columnist for the St. Paul Pioneer Press, admits it’s a tad premature to pass final judgment on the…

  15. The Misadventures of Ben Revere Continue in Centerfield

    Jun 12, 2013, 12:45 PM EDT

    Ben Revere

    The misadventures of Ben Revere in center field continued on Tuesday night in Minnesota when the human exclamation point made another awkward and failed attempt at a fly ball to the wall in the fourth inning that led to the Twins taking the early lead. [watch video of Revere botching a double by Oswaldo Arcia]…

  16. Quotable: Ben Revere’s One-Sided He Said-He Said with Umpire Bob Davidson

    Jun 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT


    If not for John Mayberry making baseball history in the 10th and 11th innings, the main storyline from Tuesday night’s 7-3 win could very well have been Bob Davidson’s interference call in the eighth inning. Davidson, the second base umpire, turned a fielder’s choice into a double play when he called Ben Revere out for…

  17. Video: Ben Revere Finds Tiny Portion of Unpadded Fenway Park Wall, Runs Full Speed Into It, Makes Amazing Catch

    May 28, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT


    The Red Sox ran through the Phillies on Monday night and Ben Revere almost ran through the Fenway Park wall. It was just that kind of night for Philly in Boston. The rollercoaster ride of the Ben Revere experience continued in the 4th inning when David Ortiz ripped a ball to the wall in center…

  18. Erik Kratz’s Huge Collision at Home in GIF, Video, and Photos

    May 24, 2013, 10:41 PM EDT


    The Phillies lost on Friday night in the opening game of their series with the Nationals down in DC. One of the few highlights for the Philadelphia side was when Ben Revere threw a guy out at the plate (!) in the 4th inning on what would turn out to be a pretty viscous collision…

  19. Ben Revere Will Not Make the First Out Tonight for the Phillies

    Apr 18, 2013, 5:09 PM EDT

    The Phillies are back home tonight in South Philadelphia where they’ll kick off an important series with the St. Louis Cardinals. After getting swept out of Cincinatti in truly horrid fashion, Charlie Manuel finally shook things up this evening by dropping Ben Revere out of the leadoff spot all the way down to No. 7 and also inserted Freddy Galvis into left field with Dom Brown tweaking his back last night. Yes, you read that right. Galvis will be manning the outfield and batting second tonight.

  20. Was This Ben Revere Play the ‘Most Awkward Attempt to Catch a Baseball in Center’ You’ve Ever Seen?

    Apr 18, 2013, 2:12 AM EDT

    Wednesday was not a good day for the Philadelphia Phillies. It was actually one of those Alexander-bad type days. Right in the thick of it all was Ben Revere’s defense.

    After botching a seemingly routine fly ball in the nine-minute loss earlier in the evening — lost it in the sun — Revere made one of the strangest attempts to catch a fly ball we’ve ever seen.

  21. Video: Ben Revere Talks About His ‘Pray for Boston’ Message on His Glove

    Apr 16, 2013, 4:47 PM EDT

    Watch Ben Revere talk about his decision to show his support for the city of Boston after the tragic events at yesterday’s marathon below.

  22. Video: Ben Revere Makes Ridiculously Awesome Diving Catch

    Apr 15, 2013, 8:32 PM EDT

    Wow. Phillies outfielder Ben Revere made one of the most impressive diving catches a Philadelphia players has made in recent memory during the second inning of their game tonight against the Reds in Cincinnati. The look on Cliff Lee’s face after Revere came up with the ball says it all.

  23. Let’s All Admire Ben Revere’s Fully Horizontal, Fully Airborne Diving Grab

    Mar 25, 2013, 1:34 PM EDT

    Chase Utley had a hot day, going 3-4 with 4 RBIS, including his fourth homer of spring, but Ben Revere was the guy earning himself a blog post. The speedy center fielder was 2-3 with a walk, a RBI, and 2 runs. But it was an amazing diving grab he made to rob Will Middlebrooks in the seventh inning that was worth a second look. [watch below

  25. Ben Revere Apologizes for Putting Lettuce and Tomato On His Cheesesteak

    Dec 14, 2012, 11:32 AM EDT

    Hey, at least he’s a quick learner. Ben Revere was welcomed to town yesterday and got his Philadelphia feet wet by ordering a cheesesteak at Chickie’s and Pete’s — sort of. The center fielder made the mistake of ordering a chicken cheesesteak and putting lettuce and tomato on it. The twitterverse was outraged. Some even…
