The Arizona Diamondbacks rookie has quite an opportunity this spring, and he intends to make the most of it.
Eaton knows the pressure is on, but as he put it, ``if you can't deal with pressure by now you shouldn't be in this game.''
Eaton's feisty attitude stems, he says, from his diminutive size - he's 5-foot-8 - and the battles that have ensued to prove that a short guy can play the game at a high level.
He calls it ``that Napoleon syndrome'' and he's counting on it to carry him through a long major league career.
