The Chicago Cubs’ David Bote signed an extension in April of last year. Why did he do that? I’ve got a simple explanation for that.

The Chicago CubsDavid Bote was interested in money. And the only way to get that was the extension. So he signed it on the dotted line and was guaranteed over $15 million over the next four years–2020 not included (the players will have to give something up.) Then you have the option years, $1MM for the first, $500K for the second for 2025 and 2026, respectively.
