David Bote 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

 This guy is starting at third base and batting eighth for the Cubs tonight, his MLB debut. Where did you come from, who is he, and is he any good?

 

Let’s get this party started!

I live in Chicago, listen to local sports radio often and have never heard of him.

Dear Everyone that is sad about Kris Bryant being on the DL again. All of Chicago is sad. (Sux fans excluded)

 

However, I have some good news for those looking for wire fire. 

 

David Bote. 

 

David Bote went 2/4 today with a single, a 9th inning two run bomb to tie the game, and he saved two runs on defense at 2B. 

 

Bote can play all over the infield and the outfield. 

 

He is now 15/44 with 8 walks and two bombs. 

 

This train is all gassed up. 

 

Add. 

 

Sincerely, 

 

A die hard that lives behind Wrigley on N Kenmore Ave.

Hard pass. (From a White Sux fan) :)

He's got 2B/3B/SS eligibility in Fantrax... Is this guy somewhat for real?

 

He'll certainly see a huge uptick in the starting lineup dependent on what they find out with Bryant.  I do know this - the Cubs FO & Maddon love him.

They have a funny way of showing that love then since he's not in the lineup tonight.

minimum 35 BBE, David Bote has the highest average exit velocity in the majors after Judge. 

Anywhere that shows if this is carrying over from minors? The hard contact

You know I don't have the numbers on me, but I did read an article from the athletic from much earlier this year that said he had really good exit velocities in the minors but was hitting the ball on the ground too much and he started changing his launch angle and he's finding more power.
