Doesn't have the maturity? Just curious how one determines that when there has been nothing saying he isn't? Young top arms have come into the league and put up better numbers than ones you mentioned, for ex. Felix, Hamels, Beckett, Hughes (would of been better with out the injury), Liriano, Ankiel, Oswalt, Prior, Greinke, Cain, Verlander, even someone like Duke has. Also the Adenhart comp is pretty far off, he really isn't on the same level as Kershaw.
