Ben Revere is doing his darnedest to try and make himself a new beloved member of the Philadelphia Phillies. He's talking about cheesecake, or cheesesteaks -- one or the other. He's eating brunch at legit local joints and tweeting about it. He's even brushing up on classic Philly sports cinema.
What Revere will soon learn is we don't care what movies he watches, whether or not he puts ketchup on a cheesesteak, or if he wants to brunch at IHOP. What we care about is the center fielder getting on base, causing havoc on the basepaths, and covering all of the outfield like a boss.
Thus far he's been pretty solid at all of the above. Revere has gone 7-27 in the Phils' first six games, scoring 4 times while knocking in 2 RBIs. He's swiped three bags and has a slash line of .259 / .286 / .259. That's a very Revere-like slugging percentage.
As you can see in the above video, he's flashed the glove nicely as well. Your initial thoughts on the Phillies new leadoff man?
The Eagles have signed former Dolphins offensive guard Dallas Thomas to a reserve/futures contract.
Thomas, 27, was drafted by the Dolphins in the third round (No. 77) out of Tennessee in 2013 and was with them until this past season.
In his four-year career, Thomas has played in 37 games with 26 starts. He started nine games in 2014 and started all 16 games at left guard in 2015.
Thomas (6-5, 315 pound) and 2014 third-rounder Billy Turner were both released in October after a poor showing agains the Titans. While Thomas was the team's starter at left guard in 2015, rookie Laremy Tunsil took over that position with the Dolphins in 2016.
In 2015, when Thomas started all 16 games at left guard, he was ranked as the worst guard in football by ProFootballFocus. He gave up 10 sacks, 10 QB hits and 36 QB hurries.
Mike Trout sure does win a lot when the Eagless beat the Cowboys.
Not only did the Los Angeles Angels outfielder get a touchdown ball from Carson Wentz during the Eagles win over the Cowboys to cap off the season, but he also won a bet on the game with a friend.
Turns out, Trout had some sort of bet with DJ Cottrell, whose Twitter profile says he is from Trout's hometown of Millville, NJ. Cottrell is likely a Cowboys fan and came up on the losing end.
"The fact I have to wear an entire Eagles uniform to the gym for a week is going to be the death of me," he Tweeted on Tuesday.
Then he posted a photo of himself in the ridiculous football uniform while posing alongside Trout.
It's good to be Mike Trout. Not so much a Dallas Cowboys fan these days.
