Lucky to get two innings out of him today.

He's up to 40 pitches in the 2nd inning. No matter what, he won't be going too far into the game. Get the pen ready.

How much longer can the Team afford to keep Archer as a Starter???,  Could he have some deal where he starts only??  always thought he could maybe help the Bullpen, as a piggy back starter with Bundy or ?,  This as is is INSANITY!!

Archer averages 71.5 pitches per start and he's at 45 through 2 innings. BP will be called on in the 4th, unless Baldelli is decides to go against his own analytics and push him higher due to the extra days  off over the next 10 days.
