If you think saying he can be better than Sonny/Edwin is getting to excited, I'm not sure what to tell you. A young talented let arm is very likely to have short term success better than others. Long term sure he could falter and not pitch as effective, but that's long term and doesnt come into play until next year.
Also on the walks comment or Price, 52IP 12BB (before his last start) comes out to 208IP 48BB which is really good. If you want to compare him to Maddux who has HOF control, sure it's not as good but who has Maddux control to begin with besides him ... not many.
Actually, a couple guys had to change their underwear a couple days ago.
Thats quite an impressive amount of walks. Hopefully he matches that in the bigs.
