    Hirsch reminds me of Aaron Harang in so many ways..... you know, minus the Frankenstein look.

    Hirsh was actually my choice for that selection going into that draft. To be fair, I also had my eye on Josh Banks in the 2nd round of that draft and he's hit a ceiling in the upper minors, but the Jays snatched him up right before the Reds picked so I never would have had to make the choice.

    What always intrgued me about Hirsh is that he can pitch (not just throw) and that frame of his was always going to yield higher and more sustained velocity as he got older. He had some serious projectability.

    I cant say I knew a whole lot going into that draft, but the last few years I have really liked his size and his stuff. Like I said, he reminds me of Harang a lot with a fastball thats a little faster and he throws a good slider as well. The Rockies got a steal when they pulled off that trade last year.... but I guess the Astros were desperate.
