I also would think you might want the comp to be close to the actual players skills
This line is the key. Don't try and fit round pegs in square holes. Most prospects don't have a true comp. If you say Hamilton could hit .300 with some walks, steal 70+ bases, ~10 HRs annually it's very clear what type of player you think he is.
