lol i mean on the one hand i agree with you and think most of the outrage around whatever tebow is doing in the minors is ridiculous (HES TAKING AT BATS AWAY FROM REAL PROSPECTS,) but on the other hand your nonstop devotion to defending him is one of the most inexplicable things to happen on this board

That special time of year where MLB will spend the next few weeks promoting and marketing Tebow more than they will the dozens of their young stars actually in MLB over the course of the year.

I think you underestimate how much free time I have. I don't even see how my posts in this thread come close to devotion.

A press release about how Tebow was released would suffice.

Yeah, pretty sure he had options besides, "this terrible freakshow WILL play in the majors."

Hot take: Anyone in the Mets system that can't outshine Tim Tebow was probably not terribly interesting as a prospect anyway.

I really hope they do call him up in September and then lose an actual prospect in the Rule 5 that should’ve been in Tebow’s 40 man spot

Yet here we are and people still inexplicably care whether Tebow sucking at baseball will keep someone else from sucking at baseball.

Nah. He's just a lunk and it's hilarious when he fails.

I think it's an interesting test case in the debate between running your team as a business and running your team under the goal of winning a World Series. Maybe the Mets aren't the best example, though I honestly don't see the harm in giving him 100 ABs in September over a Jay Bruce or something when they're 20 games out.

But let's say he was a member of the Marlins or something. You've just traded away your entire outfield, you're going to be 20 games out by the ASB, and you're already near the bottom in attendance. Sure, I wouldn't want him taking ABs away from Lewis Brinson or Monte Harrison if they prove that they're ready by then. But JB Shuck or Scott Van Slyke? I can see an argument that the bump in attendance/attention/revenue would be worth it, especially with the built in incentive to lose anyways.

Counterpoint: both the Mets and Tebow deserve nothing but bad baseball things to happen to them.

Pretty sure Mickey Mantle blew his knee out as a rookie on something similar. So there’s definitely hope for Timmy.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

So he took 2 well located pitches against a top 3 pitcher and missed the one he swung at, while Scherzer went on to strike out 4 of the other 8 batters faced.

You guys are kind of obsessed with hating Tim Tebow.

He's also struck out our best MLB hitter 70% of the time he's faced him
