David Bote Pulled Off Two Ridiculous Plays Last Night, and Then Turned 28 Today

Chicago Cubs

By my eye (and the data), David Bote is not going to be a Gold Glove finalist at second base like Nico Hoerner. But he’s been better at the position than people seem to think, and he was REALLY flashing the glove last night.

Bote got a lot of grief for failing to handle a double-play ball the night before, so it’s only fair to say that these two plays last night were ridiculous, and very Hoerner-like (also happy birthday!):

Off the bat, you wouldn’t expect either of those plays to be made. Pulling them off required perfect execution, so kudos to Bote for making it happen.
