Tropical Storm Debby is rough stuff and has spawned deadly storms and floods. But it has also spawned a metaphor of the Phillies season thus far in the form of this pic taken by prospect Justin De Fratus down in Clearwater yesterday:
That’s Bright House Field, the spring training home of the Phillies.
Gosh, I hope they got the tarp on.

The Reds have signed outfielder Ben Revere to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports. Revere is expected to take home a salary between $1 million and $1.5 million if he makes the major league roster, Heyman adds.
Revere, 29, spent last season with the Angels. He batted a light .275/.308/.344 in 308 plate appearances. Revere does have some speed as he stole 21 bases last year.
Revere will try to earn a spot on the roster as a backup outfielder. The Reds’ starting spots are spoken for with Adam Duvall, Billy Hamilton, and Scott Schebler.
