Not doing it with junk that wasn't going to translate to the big leagues either. Doing it with quality stuff. I don't know what happened to Stewart. Something did obviously. I am going to try to find out. The red flag that something was wrong might have been when he spent all of 2010 in Double-A after pitching in Triple-A effectively in both the Reds and Blue Jays systems in 2009.
He was dominating people at every level? In the minors that year he had 93 Ks in 105 innings and let up 105 hits in that same span. Not exactly dominating.
Maybe Walt sold high.
