I haven't looked at his actual numbers, but he strikes me as a +VORP short-term fill in for KB.

Hopefully that GW BB will be a good memory to get him through the rest of the Iowa summer.

He's basically Tommy LaStella with a bit more pop.  It's hard to see where the Cubs have room for him in the long run, so I guess he's trade bait who could find a utility man or even maybe a full-time gig on a shitty team.
Your toilet's broken, Dave, but I fixed it.

I agree. He's basically less-good Candelario, so when the Cubs make their deadline move(s?) I'd expect Bote to be gone.

Well, it'll be a New Day in his career.

You two wanna go stick your wangs in a hornet's nest, it's a free country.  But how come I always gotta get sloppy seconds, huh?

Am I the only one who doesn't think your thread title is obvious?

Beats me, even the Cubs used it ("Bote Bote Walkin" after his GW walk), so it's pretty much a tap-in, and about all the effort a backup infielder requires.

Now if we're talking Bote
Drafted a perfect one, so put it on me
Swear it won't take you long
If you hit it right
We cheer for life
On and on and on
