    Archie is a great teammate, and can mash a ball. Don’t let his size fool you, he can pick it at 3rd or 1st!

  2. Mike Welsh says:

    Archie crushes the ball and has a great glove! Shouldn’t be a free agent for long based off talent.

  3. Chuck Golden says:

    Great pickup, plays the game hard,and in the right way
