liriano > hamels.
edit: they are the same age, both top highly touted top pitching prospects who tore up the minors.
but liriano is lefty with a mid 90s fastball and a slider that can reach 90.
gotta give the edge to the lefty, especially since he throws harder.
Just to clarify, they are both lefties with a mid 90s fastball. Liriano has a wicked slider and Hamels has an excellent change up. Both could be special.
omg. i forgot hamels was a lefty.
