You have to be going out of your way to misinterpret my posts at this point.
If Eaton is an exception and can get on base 36-37% of the time he'll likely be an asset. However, it is very difficult to do that consistently without being able to be a decent power threat. Considering he plays in LF, he's going to need to get on base a bunch to be very useful, and that transition can be very difficult to the majors.
