CHARLIE MANUEL hinted a night earlier that it was probably a good time to give Ben Revere his first day off. Revere, Manuel said, had been trying too hard in his first month with a new team. And the offensive results haven't been pretty. But for a player whose game revolves almost exclusively around speed, a sore left quad is probably a good reason, too. "He said something about his leg in spring training, [but] he didn't say anything about it to me [recently]," Manuel said of Revere, who had started 22 straight games before yesterday.

The actions of a local patriot will be remembered next Sunday, when Gloucester County Parks and Recreation sponsors the 18th annual Jonas Cattell Run and 18th Century Field Day. Edith Hoelle, the librarian of the Gloucester County Historical Society, said Cattell was a blacksmith's apprentice from Haddonfield. He learned of an attack planned against colonial-held Fort Mercer by 1,200 to 2,000 Hessian mercenaries under British pay during the Revolutionary War. The British were occupying Philadelphia, and the troops from Fort Mercer, located at Red Bank Battlefield in present-day National Park, were interfering with British shipping.

Revere is a tiny hamlet in Nockamixon Township in Upper Bucks County. The business district, such as it is, boasts a deli selling hard rolls, gasoline, Playboy and the papers, work gloves and, in season, hunting caps. Above the deli is a combination beer-and-sandwich shop. Next to that is a gift shop. The business district sits on Route 611, a two-lane thoroughfare for people commuting from parts south to Easton. It is also a road well-traveled by Sunday drivers looking at the scenery, driving slowly and annoying the locals.

The scenery along the Blue Route won't be changing anytime soon if the township Zoning Hearing Board has anything to say about it. But two Philadelphia companies, H. A. Steen Industries Inc.'s Outdoor Advertising division and Revere National Corp., have filed appeals in Montgomery County Court to keep alive their bids to erect billboards visible from the Blue Route. Steen's proposal was for four billboards - a 14- by 48-foot billboard at 413 W. Ridge Pike, next to a Burger King restaurant; a 20- by 60-foot sign at 445 W. Germantown Pike, across from Plymouth Meeting Mall, and two double- sided, 20-by-60-foot "spectaculars," one with a 60-foot-high pole and the other with an 80-foot-high pole, at 520 and 540 Colwell Lane.

The Borough Council is considering a free offer that would bring several bus shelters and a few extra bucks to the town. Representatives from Revere National Corp. of Philadelphia presented the proposal to the Borough Council on Tuesday night. They even hitched a sample shelter to the back of a station wagon and drove it to the work session. But the council held off on any quick decisions on a deal that seemed almost too good to be true. According to the offer, the company would install for free several of the large aluminum and plexiglass structures - essentially, lighted billboards - around the borough.

When activists stood yesterday against a proposed billboard near a proposed highway in Somerton, they were caught off guard by the suggestion that a friend to their cause had become a foe. "I'm fuming," said Mary Jane Hazell, president of the Somerton Civic Association. "They led the zoning board to believe that I agreed to it. " "It" is a 12-by-24-foot billboard that Philadelphia's largest sign company - Revere National Corp. - wants to install at 1200 Byberry Rd., near a bridge over the Conrail tracks.

The good news was bad news. Nearly 100 people gathered to discuss deterrents to what many perceive as a life-threatening problem - speeding drivers on Levick and Robbins Streets - only to be told that those thoroughfares are not among the most accident- prone in the city. Last year there were 132 reported accidents on Levick and 65 on Robbins between the Delaware River and Roosevelt Boulevard, according to the state Department of Transportation. The intersection of Revere and Robbins Street - a focus of neighborhood fears - does not appear on the state's list of the 200 most hazardous intersections in the city.

Twins 1, White Sox 0 MINNEAPOLIS - Nick Blackburn pitched eight shutout innings for Minnesota, and Michael Cuddyer's home run was enough to beat Mark Buehrle and Chicago. Buehrle was beaten despite giving up just three hits over seven innings, and the White Sox fell to 0-4 this year against their primary division rival - scoring a total of three runs in the process. Blackburn (6-4) matched his career high by winning his sixth straight decision. Matt Capps, making his first appearance in eight days, pitched the ninth for his ninth save in 14 attempts this season.

THE PHILLIES beat the deadline Friday with their third trade in four days: Ben Revere is taking his career to Toronto for two minor league pitching prospects. Revere broke the news himself when he was surrounded at his locker stall at Citizens Bank Park a half hour before yesterday's 4 p.m. nonwaiver trade deadline. In exchange for Revere and cash considerations, the Phillies received righthanders Jimmy Cordero and Alberto Tirado. "It's been a fun ride," said Revere, who joined the Phillies in December 2012 in a trade that sent righthanders Vance Worley and Trevor May to Minnesota.

The Phillies already cashed in by far their biggest trade chip in Cole Hamels, but they could still make a lesser move or two before the trade deadline at 4 p.m. Friday. Ben Revere is the most likely candidate to find a new home on the final day for non-waiver trades. The 27-year-old outfielder entered Thursday night's series opener against the Atlanta Braves hitting a team-best .298, and a contending club might find him valuable as a complementary piece for the stretch run. Speaking before Thursday's game at Citizens Bank Park, Revere said he hadn't heard any news of a trade involving him. He has heard his name mentioned as a possible trade chip since the beginning of the season.

Ben Revere isn't like his teammate Jonathan Papelbon, who is openly trying to get out of town, but the Phillies outfielder understands that his address could be changing by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. The 27-year-old Revere is hitting a team-leading .299 after going 2 for 4 Sunday in an 8-7 win over the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park. Since June 3, he leads the majors with a .367 average. Revere is one Phillies trade commodity who has drawn interest. As the deadline moved closer, he was candid when asked before the game if he thinks about the possibility of being traded.

LOS ANGELES - Ben Revere tested his right hamstring Monday morning and was deemed ready to play. The speedy outfielder had missed the team's previous five games. "Back to normal now," he said Monday night before the series opener against the Dodgers. Revere, in the lineup as a rightfielder, led off the game with a single. His brief absence had come on the heels of a great June in which he hit .346 with five doubles, three triples and a home run. His 36 hits for the month were surpassed in the National League by only teammate Maikel Franco (38)

It's been quite a weekend for Phillies outfielder Ben Revere, both in the games that counted and those that didn't. On Friday, Revere hit a pinch-hit home run off baseball's hottest pitcher, Max Scherzer, in a 5-2 loss to the Washington Nationals. Then in Saturday's game at Citizens Bank Park, which was postponed by rain after just 11/2 innings, Revere had enough time to make his mark. Besides getting a single and stolen base, Revere made a spectacular catch, leaping at the outfield wall to rob Nationals first baseman Tyler Moore of an extra-base hit. "I tried to jump as high as I could to catch it, and luckily it found a way to my glove," Revere said.

AFTER THE Phillies traded centerfielder Shane Victorino in the middle of the 2012 season, they had a chance to re-sign him in the offseason. They instead opted to trade starters Vance Worley and Trevor May for Ben Revere, a base-stealing threat with excellent outfield range who seldom strikes out. To some observers, Revere's throwing arm (he now plays leftfield) and his lack of power (he has two home runs in six seasons) might lessen his value. But at 27 and not being eligible for free agency until 2018, the versatile Revere, with his .289 career average, is a prime candidate for some contending team to snare from a bloated Phillies roster.

NEW YORK - Ben Revere went into the offseason believing he could turn at least a few of his 162 singles from last season into extra-base hits. A shade more than a quarter of the way into the season, the Phillies outfielder has done just that. Revere's two-run triple in a 4-3, 10-inning loss to the New York Mets on Tuesday gave him a National League- leading four this season. Only the Kansas City Royals' Paulo Orlando (five) has more. His seven doubles put Revere well on pace to surpass last season's total of 13, a career high he matched in 2012.

BEN REVERE had been back in town from spring training for only a few days and was about to take the field for pregame batting practice on Opening Day when a reporter told him he was on the trade block. "Right before the first pitch," Revere recalled Wednesday afternoon. "I'm like, damn. OK. But that's the way it is. It happens to everybody. " Revere, 27, already has been traded once (by Minnesota to the Phils, for today's opposing starter, Vance Worley) and understands the sport he plays is also a business.

The first Phillies batter strolled to the plate on Friday night and for the first time in 11 days it was Ben Revere. The team's opening-day leadoff hitter returned to his top spot after spending time in the second and eighth holes. Revere entered Friday riding a five-game hitting streak. His batting average was still a paltry .189, but it has spiked 54 points since April 16. Revere started 123 games last season in the leadoff spot. "I would like for him to settle in there and be a catalyst at the top of the order," manager Ryne Sandberg said.
