He runs like I did when I played little league. I was told I looked like I was running in slow motion.

I mean I can't imagine they care about that team enough anymore to hate an opponent.

I once had a coach say "you know how sometimes when someone runs too fast they pull a muscle? it looks like you pushed one."

It's my (maybe incorrect) recollection that this is a Jay Bilas quote from the 80's but my dad always used to joke with me about it being applicable to my athletic endeavors. Either way it still makes me chuckle.

Great play by Russell and I love the reaction from Bote lol.

Even better that this play went against Braun.

I thought last year that David Bote was going to be our deluxe version Jeff Baker, and was perfectly happy with that. Now I'm beginning to wonder if we lucked into some sort of B+ Justin Turner clone (complete with hideous beard). Bote has more juice in the glove, though even in the rosiest scenarios isn't going to be quite there with the bat.

He's done enough to make Addison Russell expendable. Though Addy made himself expendable without anyone else's help.

The problem is finding a team willing to take him.

That's not a problem if they simply did the right thing and got rid of him.

Just release him. He'll make a great high school baseball coach with his mentality.

We all know they should have dropped him rather than resigning him.

Just leave him in AAA unless Javy were to get hurt. Bote can handle SS in an emergency and for 5-10 games to give Javy rest.

This is all about Zobrist wanting to see Bote get a chance over Russell. I've heard Zobrist is not at all happy that Russell has been welcomed back.

Nah, Zobrist is just a Bran like weirdo and could see in to the future that there would be a more important AB later in the game that needed him.
