    Watching these other teams reminds me how much I miss the shiny helmets with sticker logos. I hate the matte finish and pop-out insignias

    There may not have been a worse trade this decade than the Chris Archer trade. Glasnow looks like an ace after the mechanical fixes, Austin Meadows is a legit stud who posted .922 OPS and Shane Baz is chucking 100 MPH and is looking like at least a mid rotation starter. Archer has been nothing short of awful in 1.5 years with the Pirates... but yeah it is all the coaches fault.

    Glad we never gave up what the Rays wanted for him
    Didn't want him regardless of the price, honestly.
    Always seemed overrated to me

    He was good from '13-'15, but has been nowhere close to an ace since then. All the media people saying he needed a change of scenery when really he was part of the problem.

    meh, very good June, otherworldly in July, terrible in August and September. Coulda been useful in those earlier months, but he would not have gotten the AB's and Will Smith is just better.

    I can't help feeling I'd rather see a Smith/ d' Arnaud catching tandem than Russell. Always have.
    But you never know...maybe Russell has some magic left.
    We'll see...

    wasn't suggesting he's better than Smith
    but he seems to have more juice than Martin although at the time he looked like a zero
    went to the Mets and did nothing as well
    just didn't think he had much of a chance

    d'Arnaud is generally regarded as a pretty shitty defender/framer so everything is in his offense and beside that hot start with the Rays, he wasn't anything special the last 40+ games. In all, he barely beat out Martin in WAR while having 150 more AB's than him. I think in terms of a backup, you prefer Martin.
