What? Okay, I've posted here long enough for people to know that isn't what I'm about... I wasn't even the biggest Bote fan or backer here. I liked him last year, but other posters liked him more and/or noticed him before me.
I only want credit when I push for an amateur prospect in the draft and they end up being legit/making it to the big leagues. I really don't make "long shot calls" on prospects in our farm system. I like Eloy a lot, and wasn't a fan of the Quintana trade but that isn't really some edgy hot take.
