Pretty much nails it:

 

Now ask yourselves why none of the New York writers who have been carrying the Yankees’ “A-Rod’s hip is so bad his career may be over!” water haven’t asked the team what changed in his prognosis since 8AM Tuesday morning to make them say all the things they’ve been saying.

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.
