This is my most bold move. Why this works? The Phillies will need a staff ace, who’s young and get strikeouts. That’s Archer. In his past two seasons he has had a 3.23 and 4.38 earned run average, respectively. His strikeouts per nine are above eleven. He is the ace we need to push in October. In this trade, we’d give up C Andrew Knapp, RHP Ricardo Pinto, 1B Jhailyn Ortiz and RHP Nick Pivetta. The Philles would pay a hefty price, especially in Andrew Knapp but we have the depth to absorbs these losses. This is a move that winners make.
