Chris Archer Trade

The Pirates’ trade on Tuesday for Chris Archer is the kind of move every fan should hope their team makes. The Bucs are closer to the fringe of the playoff hunt than actually making the playoffs, but they’re still very much in the hunt, and Archer’s a potential number two starter under team control for three years beyond this one. It’s the perfect win-now-but-also-win-later move for a team that needs to take chances but can’t afford to get burned.

In exchange for their nominal staff ace, the Rays are extracting real value from Pittsburgh. Austin Meadows is an outfielder who hasn’t torn the cover off the ball in Triple-A but looked great in his few weeks of major league action this year. Tyler Glasnow is a fireballer who’s bad now but could be great later. Both are former top prospects, cheap, and with loads of potential at just 23 and 24 years old.

That’s OK. Archer is 29, relatively cheap himself, and has a cannon for a right arm. His 4.31 ERA isn’t exciting, but his underlying metrics all say he’s a better pitcher than that. It should help him to get out of the AL East and into the NL Central, and he’ll get to stay in a pitcher’s ballpark. It isn’t good that the Pirates love fastballs and Archer’s heater has gotten smoked this year, but that doesn’t mean they’re walking into a train wreck. The Pirates — the Pirates! — made the biggest trade of the deadline, and that’s thrilling for a fanbase that’s used to the other side of these deals.
