exactly. I keep trying to tell his supporters that there are literally hundreds of ex players who would be absolutely raking in low A if given the chance...but what's the point of giving a 30 yr old who washed out in double A that chance. It's his idiotic supporters who idolize him because of his faith that even allowed him to have a chance. It's quite irritating

Tebow is god, bow now or force his anger or something.

He is a stupidly gifted athlete, fwiw.

Atheist Florida fan here, that he hasn't played baseball in 20-whatever years is a pretty big difference. He's a stupid good gay christian Athlete -- I mean a good athlete.

Well the NFL wasn't too impressed. And he's 1 of about 6000 or so minor league ballplayers. So...neat.

Not sure why anyone who had ever seen Tebow play football thought he'd have an average or above average arm. Dude looked like a punter throwing a pass on a fake punt everytime he threw the football.

well, they are incredibly different motions. I could envision a world in which somebody thought he could have an average arm in baseball.


but by and large, totally agree.

Yeah, I mean, he IS an elite athlete and is incredibly fit. One would naturally assume that he'd at least have an average arm.

Too bad he didn't want to play FB in the NFL. He would have wrecked people.

Maybe other teams don't, I wouldn't know since I don't pay much attention to other teams, but the Saints used theirs for 5 TD's last year.

FB in its true form is pretty much a non-existent position. There's usually like 2 guys every year considered draftable.

Tebow would have been a TE if he played.

I feel like Tebow could have played an H Back type role and that team could scheme to take advantage of what he did well.

Tim Tebow, former football player and current brand/alleged baseball player, is hanging out with the Single-A Columbia fireflies before he inevitably goes on TV full-time. He’s done some productive baseball stuff with the Fireflies and might even get moved up at some point this season. Tebow is hitting .211 with an OPS of .635, which was higher before he went on an extended cold streak.

Which brings us to Tuesday night’s game against the Lakewood Blue Claws, when Tebow accidentally tossed a warm-up throw into a fan’s dick and balls.


“I hear this guy behind me yell, ‘Watch out,’” said Brustman. “And as he’s yelling, the ball comes right through the railing and hits me right in the nuts. It was a direct hit.”

The rule with getting hit in the nuts is that it's hilarious unless it's you that got hit. Tebow is awesome. He should do this every game.
