Pedro and Smoltz on Archer
Who are we to pretend we know more than two Hall of Fame pitchers? The issue Pedro points out is a problem, but it is not the only problem.
We feel Chris Archer‘s lack of command, particularly of his fastball, is the primary source of his struggle while this glove separation issue is certainly not helping Archer’s cause. This is evident with each of the at bats that are highlighted in the video if you watch how badly Archer misses each target. After all, the glove separation looked more exaggerated last year than it does in the video below from MLB Network earlier today.
