I don't think anyone was saying that.
But guys who can hit singles and doubles a lot but not home runs are generally easier to find than guys who can hit for power.
Eaton has played at an absolute launching pad for every stop along the way except for in AA. He hit .302 and slugged .409 there. Is he any different than Henry Rodriguez, who we already control? Aside from the whole position thing of course.
I doubt many teams are out there beating our doors down for HRod.
