    Over the weekend, Blue Jays announcer Buck Martinez reportedly said that he thought Chris Archer isn’t “physically right.” I found this comment odd and out of the blue, but Martinez is a former big-league catcher and manager and had just called a game against the Rays earlier in the week, […]

    Chris Archer had a rough night on Friday, giving up 6 runs in 5.0 innings including 4 home runs in the 6-1 loss. Most would chalk it up to an off night, but Toronto Blue Jays announcer Buck Martinez is worried something else is up. According to Jerry Crasnick of […]

    Surprise! Chris Archer is the opening day starter. He will likely be followed by Drew Smyly, Jake Odorizzi, and Matt Moore. The big question is whether the Rays will go with a fifth starter to start the season, which presumably would be Erasmo Ramirez. The Rays have enough off days […]
