When Alexei Ramirez was a rookie and hitting over .310, there were posts complaining that he didn't walk enough. There were posters here who criticized Miguel Cabrera for not walking enough during his triple-crown season. I see the criticism all the time at WSI. Absent my post, an your response to it, I have no question someone would have questioned whether Eaton walks enough.
I had just finished a story that talked about Eaton's minor league on-base percentage, without mentioning that he hit about .380 in pretty much a full season in Reno in 2012. But he didn't walk a lot.
