Revere doesn't draw walks and doesn't hit for power. He is pretty good defensively but his throwing arm is comparable to Johnny Damon or Shannon Stewart. I really don't see him as a solid everyday player.
I really can't imagine Cuddyer leaving, he will probably re-sign, something like 2 years at $5M per, not that I would give him that contract. I really can't stand Cuddyer as a player, his flaws are only getting worse. You'd think someone would tell the guy to lay off a ******* low and away breaking ball with 2 strikes for once in his career.
Delmon is most likely gone, he's playing bad enough to earn a non-tender if he doesn't start getting some extra base hits.
Span is not going anywhere.
Benson has been plagued by injuries, but he could easily challenge for an outfield spot if he stays healthy.
Aaron Hicks should travel fairly quickly through the upper level of the minors once he gets there, but I would not expect him for at least another full season. His power has made zero strides so there's some definite reason for concern on that front as far as hitting goes. He does have a great approach at the plate.
The guy I like is Oswaldo Arcia. He's been on an absolute tear (although he is a little old for low A ball at 20) for the past 1.5 seasons. OPS'd 1.094 last year and is at 1.124 so far in 2011. Interested to see where he ends up this season.

"Maybe these weren’t the toughest 3,000 hits ever – not as long as men such as Aaron and Mays fought racism before they even got to that night’s pitcher – but maybe they were. Depends on the angle of your story."
