If you compare him to his peers (age, their level, et al), Ramirez dominated most of them until his last minor league year.
I'd argue that his numbers-- obp and slugging especially-- were well above average. A total minor league line from a SS that goes .300/.350/.430 is very, very good. (Especially considering the leagues he was a part of.)
