2018-07-30 23:00:00 (link to chat)David Bote looks like a "player" to me. Is there something I'm missing or do you agree that his bat is at least "interesting"---and maybe even more?
(bob from pa)
Yeah I'm a fan too, hadn't really seen or heard much of him until his debut, that's not a system I have a lot of familiarity with firsthand. But just seems like a solid sum-of-his-parts player, does everything reasonably well, has added some loft to his swing. Second-division regular type, with a lot of modern 25-man value due to defensive versatility. Think he can have himself a nice little career.

Speaking of beauty in subtlety, this song is a gorgeous way to wind down a lovely evening: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmuZOE3vltg (Wilson Karaman)
