Meadows, Glasnow, and a 3rd player to be named.

Love it, we have Luplow, Reynolds and Martin along with Dickerson. Meadows is expendable for a good starting pitcher.

I am officially happy with Glasnow and Meadows.

I will not be happy if the 3rd piece is named Hayes or "Kevin" or any one of our top 10 prospects.

Glasnow and Meadows feels like enough.

Dreading the 3rd name.

I don't think of giving up on Meadows.  It's a Q of what is needed more and I'd say we need SP more. 

If the Pirates want to be hopefully better in 2022-25, then keep Meadows. If the Pirates want to win now, they have to use their prospects to make the team better now.

It's time for the Pirates to be as concerned for today as they are the future that never seems to get here.

I guess. 

Meadows is ready now though.

Getting Archer is huge. He'll improve the rotation and help the other pitchers get better. Meadows will be a star player but they have OF depth and Meadows can get you an Archer. TB is taking a flyer on Glasnow. He won't be missed. I hope the 3rd guy doesn't tilt the trade too heavily for Archer.

This deal will give the fans some faith in TBMTIB and should bring many back to the ballpark.

With Marte, Polanco and Dickerson the Bucs are set in the outfield next season.  Looks like NH is looking at going for it this year rather than in 2020 or later.  good for him.

I like Glasnow and think he still could become special.  However, I like this trade because by the time he would become special, he would be at the point of leaving.

I stated earlier that I was luke-warm on acquiring Archer.  He may not be much of a difference maker this year or in future years.

That said, I am okay with moving both Meadows and Glasnow (would not have said this 2 years ago when Glasnow was viewed as a top prospect), but I am fearful of the 3rd player in the deal.  Even with only those two names announced, the Pirates paid a high price for a pitcher with mediocre results, except for the strike-outs.

Kudos to Neal " No Deal" Huntington. Guess I will have to change his nickname to "Sometimes Deal". It took some guts and intestinal fortitude to pull the trigger and get Archer. I am a big fan of Austin Meadows, he is from my area, here in greater Atlanta, GA. Wish him well as a D-Ray, quality guy and classy family. Welcome to the Burgh Archer! Now Neal, you are going to be a good guy in the news in my book!   Cool

Meadows and Glasnow is a great trade so far for us.    3rd piece be a throw in and NH just made his first really big move.  Barring injury, our rotation and bullpen just made a notable improvement for the next few years.   

Great job selling on Meadows NH.  Great sell!   Cash that in now with that poor defense and suspect hammies.   Corner OF lowers his ceiling considerably.  Luplow may be a better player anyway lol.
