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.
Those Cardinals aren't red, they're yellow.  Like the Spanish!

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.
