Colby Suggs is maybe the easiest comp you’ll ever do: Joe Blanton.
Saw him at the Area Codes and saw a touch of him in San Diego as a freshman. Have seen him here and there on TV. I think as long as this guy knows his forte is going to be as an innings-eating strike thrower, he has a chance. I would imagine he’ll probably put up with some body type worries until he has a fair amount of pro success behind him. I also think that you could see him as a middle man in the future as well. Defining his role early in his career and staying with that plan will benefit him tremendously. I’ve always rooted for the guy, just for the heck of it. He’s not in my area and he only gets to me every now and then.
