All people are saying is that based on projections-- which are often wrong!-- it doesn't appear that he'll be a good enough offensive player to compensate for his lack of a defensive position. That's all.
You need to give this guy time to develop his full game. If you ever played baseball or coached it, you will understand that young kids are pre-occupied with offense first and defense is something they usually don't work on initially. A lot of players get better by devoting more time with the glove and/or switching positions. Still got doubts?? Look no further than Mark Reynolds. He was atrocious at third base but put him on first and he was Gold Glove in the minds of a lot of people on this and other boards
