Most of the early reports say the price for Archer was too much to give up. While I wish that only one of Glasnow or Meadows was required to get Archer, the Pirates got a cost controlled pitcher for the next 4 post season runs. The best part of the acquisition is that they were able to keep Archer away from Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Louis.
If Archer can return to his 2015 All-Star season, the Pirates have a feature ace for a Wild Card game.
The most notable need is the pink parallel which I would love to get for my October Pink month.
So far I have the base, sabremetric back, foilboard, gold, snow camo, and the black.
What do you think about the moves your teams made yesterday?
Do you think the Pirates gave up too much for Chris Archer?
