The Mets move Tim Tebow up

The dumpster that is the New York Mets organization has decided to give Tim Tebow a promotion. I’m not a big baseball guy. But, is striking out 69 times in 63 games is a good thing? I didn’t think so.

ESPN: “The New York Mets are promoting Tim Tebow from low-A ball to St. Lucie of the Advanced A League.

He was batting .222 with three home runs, 23 RBIs, a .311 on-base percentage and a .340 slugging percentage with 69 strikeouts and 23 walks in 212 at-bats for the Columbia Fireflies.

“It’s not like he’s tearing up the league, but at the same time all of the indications are positive in terms of various things we look at — chase rates and exit velocity,” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. “The bottom line is the average isn’t there, but he’s improving.”

Tebow, 29, signed with the Mets in September and spent time in the Florida Instructional League and the Arizona Fall League.”
