With the Brewers on deck, I'm having a hard time figuring if John is going to have LaPorta as a B+ or an A-.
He looks like a pretty decent bet to be a good all around hitter and the discipline, contact and raw power seem to all be there.
The problem is trying to figure him defensively. In left, it would seem the best they can hope for is competence. But as soon as Prince walks (likely after 2011) LaPorta should slide right back to a more natural fit for him at first.
So is he a B+ or an A-? Lower?
