It's not always about speed when it comes to stealing bases. Bagwell stole 30+ in his prime and he is below avg in speed. Pujols last season is another good example.
I still don't know about the Guerrero comparison.
Based on what each did at age 20, I'd say the comparison is pretty good. Plus Vlad is pretty much a 15 SB player if you take out two years he had 30+ SBs.
It's just that when you get to the level of Delmon's talent, there are not too many you can compare him to so...

Delmon still needs work on his plate discipline but everything else screams superstar to me.
