Let's be honest here: The Rays have eked out a solid ERA from Archer, but this is not a matchup that really favors Tampa Bay.

Name Team W L G GS IP K% BB% BABIP LOB% GB% HR/FB ERA FIP xFIP WAR
Hiroki Kuroda Yankees 11 8 25 25 160.1 18.2% 4.6% .268 81.2% 48.0% 8.1% 2.41 3.16 3.47 3.8
Chris Archer Rays 6 5 15 15 88.1 17.3% 8.4% .232 81.1% 46.3% 10.4% 2.95 4.33 4.35 0.5

And leave it to the Rays PR department to aid an actor / borderline-supermodel in distress:

A hearty thanks to Gentleman Extraordinaire / Kim DeJesus stalker Daniel Russell for passing along this conversation.
