I think it's a valid question why Sonnanstine (87 MPH fastball) and Kevin Slowey (90 MPH fastball) are acceptable comps for a guy whose value, in part, comes from plus velocity.

I mean, there are lots of guys who excelled in AA. Why would those guys spring to mind?

You could pick a guy with a good fastball/curve combo like Gavin Floyd who ripped up AA and hasn't become what he was projected to be in the majors, but comparing a plus velo guy to two soft tossing strike throwers doesn't make sense.
