everybody realizes what an idiot that Huntington is.... he got robbed, especially if the other player is a top 10 prospect....... they should've gotten degrom for that package......archer is a number 4 starter and is on the way down, will most likely be out of baseball in a couple of years....

Get this. Ken Rosenthal called this exact trade two years ago.

Two years ago, @Ken_Rosenthal reported that it would cost the Pirates Austin Meadows and Tyler Glasnow to acquire... Chris Archer. And that's exactly what happened today.

The Rays believe there are roughly eight teams with strong enough farm systems to put together a package for right-hander Chris Archer in advance of the Aug. 1 non-waiver trade deadline, reports FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal (video link). One of those clubs, the Pirates, would have to move both righty Tyler Glasnow and outfield prospect Austin Meadows to acquire Archer.

Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

not off to a rip roaring start...fans putting too much pressure on him, and he apparently is NOT a big game pitcher.......His stuff tonight is not that of a top notch major league starting pitcher....

shameful trade.... fire Huntington and hurdle now...

glasnow has been awesome in the AL....baz was the player to be named....not really big on baz, but archer is at best a number 5 starter..... not worth any one of the players traded for him..

archer doesn't have much movement on his pitches..... looks to be washed up.... if he doesn't turn it around soon....will become the target of boos in Pittsburgh, given that they gave up waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much for him to begin with...


they probably need to place him on waivers and if he clears see what they can get for him now...

Archer has been a huge flop,the scouts that scouted him should be fired along with the entire front office that had anything to do with it....archer is basically a pitcher that needed to be released.....

Last two games, Archer has pitched well.He did give up a 3 run homer but only after the ump had squeezed him on pitches to the batter before the homer. his pitches were much sharper and he was in control.He was throwing too many pitches but he looked very good...


If he can continue to pitch like that and tailon, Williams and Musgrove stay healthy, they will have a very nice starting staff, especially if Keller can join them next year. The odd men out are Nova and Kuhl....


Kramer got his first two mlb hits tonight, he reminds me of warren morris.I'd like Frazier to start at second next year and Kramer at SS. they need to get a third baseman and a catcher.....

25 pitches into the game...... down 3-0.... one out.......not worth even one of the players that was traded for him...
