Re: Sasuke Vs. Minato
Amaterasu is instant in getting to wherever the user is focusing. Short range, mid range, and long range don't matter. It reaches the point of focus at the same time no matter the distance. The matter of whether the flames would stay on Minato or not once he has teleported is debatable. We don't know if that mechanic of FTG works the same as Kamui.

Amaterasu shield and Blaze release completely stop any attempts for close range combat for Minato as long as Susanoo is up. Even without the shield, nothing that Minato has shown would be able to get through even Susanoo's ribs. Naruto's super giant rasengan wasn't even able to put a dent in Madara's Susanoo's ribs so a normal rasengan from Minato isn't going to be able to get through Sasuke's. Even without Susanoo up, Minato would have a hard time hitting Sasuke due to his sharingan. He doesn't fight the same way as Obito, who relied on intangibility and Kamui to warp people. If Sasuke has intel on Minato's FTG, then he wouldn't allow an opening by letting the special kunai to get near him. It would be difficult for Sasuke to hit Minato due to his extremely fast reaction speed, even with Susanoo's attack speed being high.
FTG and high reaction speed = Susanoo, Rasengan < Susanoo
Sasuke can use his Hawk summonings to avoid FTG kunai. If Minato summons any toads, they will eat Amaterasu instantly.
So Minato's summonings and counters < Sasuke's summonings and counters
I believe that the only reason that Danzo was able to break out of Sasuke's genjutsu is because he had the sharingan (multiple in fact). Sasuke was able to immobilize Bee, who is a very good shinobi, and the only reason he was able to get out of it was because of Gyuki. Remember how Sasuke's genjutsu affected C.
Minato < Sasuke's genjutsu
I'm not sure what you mean about Minato's thrown kunai burning Sasuke (maybe it catches on fire while going through the Ama shield?) but it is nonsense. Sasuke has Susanoo up when using Ama shield. Nothing that Minato has shown can get through Sasuke's Susanoo ribs (except Reaper death seal). Sasuke could easily prepare the conditions for Kirin at the beginning of the fight by throwing up Susanoo ribs and firing off an Ama cirlce around himself and fire dragons into the air. Lightning is a lot faster than lets say A, who Minato was barely able to react to (although reacting to his speed is very impressive nonetheless). Minato can dodge the lightning if constantly using FTG from kunai to kunai, but I don't think he would be able to react quick enough if stationary and then seeing the lightning come down as it strikes. The area of effect and intensity of Kirin is greater than a normal lightning bolt, so if Minato gets hit he is dead. It is possible that if Minato knows what is happening with Kirin, he can set up a S/T barrier to redirect it to Sasuke.
FTG and reaction speed > Kirin with intel but a nonfactor without.
Overall, I think it comes down to how much the combatants know about each other and whether or not FTG works the same as Kamui in regards it sticking during teleportation. If they both know about each other's arsenals and Ama doesn't stick, I say that Sasuke wins win a awesome and intellectual battle. If Ama sticks then Minato has nothing he can do against it and loses in a less spectacular way. If Sasuke doesn't know anything about FTG, then Minato gets a sneak attack in a wins instantly. I don't think that Sasuke would be able to get Susanoo up in time once he realizes that Minato is near him (probably at his side or behind) since Obito wasn't able to go intangible fast enough either.
@ Sazzi: In regards to your last post, Sasuke has used Susanoo to over power people against the Raikage, who's speed and power made Susanoo necessary and Danzo, who needed to be pressured to constantly use Izanagi and Susanoo's attack speed and range was the best suited for this. Neither of these people are normal, especially Danzo with his extra lives.
