Remember when the Mets signed Tim Tebow two years ago and how everyone thought it was a publicity stunt?
Yeah, me too.
Tebow jerseys with his signature #15 were flying off the shelves, fans started to take a knee like he did in excitement, even if it didn’t seem like he would ever come close to making the actual Mets roster.
Welp, get your memes ready, because it’s actually happening. Tim Tebow has played 31 games so far in Double-A for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies (because what’s more Central New York than a carousel horse?!) and is hitting at a .260 clip. That’s slightly above average, folks.
He’s clocked 4 homeruns, 6 doubles, and 17 RBI’s. Tebow is doing more than just living on a prayer at the plate, he’s actually delivering, and he could be the divine intervention the Mets need as their season crumbles into typical mediocrity.
Look, I know that the former NFL quarterback gets as much praise as he gives, but you gotta give him credit. He had a dream to play baseball, has remained humble throughout and has earned everything he has gotten since signing for the Mets.
You know he’s getting the best every night from opposing pitchers, because who wants to give up a moonshot to a player who was viewed as a publicity stunt to generate revenue when he signed? Oh, and he’s Tim Tebow, who has hair that spiked with gel and a smile that would make any dude wanna punch him in the face.
The Mets won’t rush #TebowTime before it’s ready to handle the thrills and ills of Major League Baseball. However, if their season keeps the downward trajectory it’s been on recently and is out of it by August, I hope they don’t hesitate.
Because there is nothing that would be more of a guilty pleasure than grinding out the dog days of summer getting wasted at Citi Field while Tebow takes a knee before every at-bat and after every home run.
