    I just don't think he was very good as an NFL qb and he is pretty bad as a baseball player. I think the Mets are just using him for marketing purposes, which is ok also, as long as TT realizes it too.

    I'd say that too if Tebow hit one off me...

    I wouldn't. I'd own it. You can't always get the best of everyone.

    @Mets_Minors
    Tim Tebow went 2 for 4 with a walk and run scored tonight for St. Lucie.

    Tebow is 5-9 with a HR in 3 games so far in High-A. Maybe he gets better vs. better pitching.

    Even if he does realize it, why would it matter? Would you care if someone told you that you could get paid to play baseball but it's just for them to make money off you?

    In his eyes even if he knows, it gives him a chance to play and try to get better.

    Only negative is a player that actually deserves a promotion doesn't get it because of Tebow.

    That's what I really hate about it. These dude out there in low A are grinding hard for a chance and this bum get promoted for hitting .220 and striking out 35% of the time.

    I don't hate Tebow nor do I blame him for trying since someone was willing.

    Well he's batting .429 in high A so far so maybe he does deserve a look at least.

    Not blaming him or mad at him at all. Once again, my only point has been for all the blind, hardcore Tebiw supporters that believe Tebows beliefs have kept him from getting opportunities. I still contend that Tebiw has gotten way more chances than others who have had much more talent. But again, good for him.

    If there is some kid that deserves to be brought up, they will be brought up. Tebow has no impact on that. No team is going to let a kid rot on the vine and not bring him up if he's ready. There are always players at the next level not cutting it that are getting to hang around because there is no one behind them ready to be called up. Once a player is ready there is ALWAYS someone ahead of them that's ready to be demoted.

    So, your theory is if they bring Tebow to the majors next week, he didn't get a chance over someone else? There is no one good enough in the Mets minor leagues to make the next step, so let's just bring Tebow up. Or is there a level, where he is not getting an opportunity over someone else?
