He will even out around the .250-.260s like mth123 said. Good power though. Many times, his swing looks effortless but the ball goes a long way relative.
This seems like a good assessment to me. One comp that comes to mind which might not be immediately obvious is Alfonso Soriano. Make bad ones and you're in trouble. Make good pitches and you've got a good chance to get him out. But sometimes, he'll that good pitch and 1-hand it in to the bleachers.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
