As free agents agree to terms, Tim Tebow gets cut

It would be foolish to get so caught up in football transactions that transactions from other sports involving former football players are overlooked.

Via Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, the Mets have cut Tim Tebow.

Tebow batted 0.056 in the Grapefruit League, striking out 11 times in 19 plate appearances, with 18 official at-bats. Tebow sprained an ankle on a sprinkler early in camp.

Mets G.M. Sandy Alderson has predicted that Tebow will eventually play Major League Baseball. And if the guy who ultimately controls the roster believes it, it has a good chance of happening.

But Tebow will need to be able to do much better than 1-for-18 if he wants to be anything other than a jersey-selling sideshow.

  1. Remember when he fielded a ground ball, went to pass it to the 1st baseman and threw it so far over his head that it cleared the fence? He puts more balls out of the park as an infielder making passes than he does as a batter.

    Yeah, Major Leaguer lol sure. What a joke.

  2. what a bum. both in baseball(cough cough steroidfest, cough cough) and in football.

    can you say mega b.u.s.t.

  3. With his workout ethic and fan appeal he should have listened and switched positions in the NFL not switch professional sports. Just my opinion.

    Some people remain obsessed with Tim Tebow. After all this time.

    —————————-
    Belichick wanted him to be a TE. But he said QB or cut me so Belichick accepted that offer. I think it was a mistake on Tebow’s part because I liked his chances of being a beast at TE.

  6. I’d prefer a Tebow story over a story about a cry-baby kneeling loser. Tebow got cut more than that moron, and moved on with his life. Typical, though, folks like him are only looking for hand outs, as though it’s “owed” to him.

  7. I feel bad this guy never had to go to an office 6 days a week and work for someone else. Funny he got cut from the Mets, a Major League Baseball team, considering he had not played baseball for 10 years. Now he will only work for the SEC Network and do charity work. How’s that National Championship, Heisman Trophy and being one of the Top 50 College Football Players ever working out for you now Timmy….

  8. well, there’s always miniature golf! And I’m sure if he plays miniature golf, PFT will still regularly update his progress!

  9. Whether or not he has the skills to play pro sports, the people calling him a loser and a bum, I WOULD LOVE to compare your lives side by side with his.

  10. Tim Tebow was a winning NFL QB. It’s crazy that he’s not playing football. He’s as good a baseball player as Cal Ripkin would be on the football field.

  11. I’ll give the guy credit for getting off the couch and giving it a try. That’s more than a lot of sad sacks will do. Showing up is the first step to success. Bravo to him for giving it a go.

    But after you show up, you do have to perform. Obviously that part didn’t go as planned. Hopefully he’s got a comfy couch to go back home to. Better to fail than to never try.

  12. How about more Jake Locker stories? He was drafted a year later with the 8th pick in the 1st round. He’s also a bible thumper and currently signed to an MLB team. The peanut gallery demands answers! And Drew Brees would probably like an explanation!

  13. He didn’t get cut from the Mets, he was cut from the major league camp. He just goes back to the minor league camp until he’s assigned to a minor league affiliate.

  14. Does anyone here (including Mr. Florio) know how baseball works? Tebow was cut FROM SPRING TRAINING, not from the Mets. In more casual parlance, he was “sent down” with the first wave of prospects. He’s still part of the Mets organization.

    Seems like someone’s obsessed with someone’s obsession

  16. Tebow is beloved by millions of followers. Maybe he can get another opportunity in the NFL. It should be noted that Adam Gase was his QB Coach in Denver 6 years ago for his one good year in the NFL. Gase did a good job of optimizing Tebow’s strengths so the Broncos could make the playoffs. Maybe he will give him a chance. Thoughts and prayers for Tim tonight.

    Nicely done, damn straight. Some people’s jealousy is only rivaled by their stupidity.
