I think a lot depends on how Acuna is valued by different teams, but as I've looked in to the Archer market you are probably correct that that wouldn't get it done. I had forgotten about those massive asks in the talks with Boston at the deadline.
I don't think Albies is on the table either, it wouldn't make sense to worsen the ML team if you are paying massive for a guy like Archer.
Anderson, Newcomb, Acuna, Touki, Fried, Smith, Blair, maybe? That doesn't make any sense at all for the Braves, as they've spent 2+ years stockpiling massive minor league depth, but I think that is close to getting it done, no?
