Tim Tebow and his .163 batting average head to the injured list

Tim Tebow’s minor league baseball career is not going well.

Tebow, the former NFL quarterback who has spent the last couple years trying to be a professional baseball player, is hitting .163 with the Syracuse Mets, and now he’s been placed on the injured list after cutting his hand while trying to field a ball. The cut required eight stitches.

Although Tebow performed better than many were expecting at the outset of his minor league career, it’s not realistic to think he’ll ever make the majors, and it’s easy to wonder whether he’ll soon decide to give up the baseball dream.

Despite struggling in baseball, Tebow seems to be doing well elsewhere in his life: He recently bought a $3 million mansion in a neighborhood where he already owns a $1.4 million home, and he’s engaged to former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.

  1. I’m not saying a man doesn’t have a right to enjoy the fruits of his labor. But this kid made such a spectacle of himself and his “calling” to serve God and others that I find the excesses… laughable.

    Pretty sure that $3 million would have gone a long way for all those orphans he keeps photo oping himself with.

    What a ridiculous thing to say. We know you hate Tebow but he is a pro baseball player. If you are in the minor leagues, which he is, he is still considered a pro baseball player. You should try be a professional, instead of trying to put him down. He IS a pro.

  3. “He recently bought a $3 million mansion in a neighborhood where he already owns a $1.4 million home.”

    So what is the big deal. I mean who doesn’t own multiple homes in their neighborhood?

  4. I like Tebow. He seems like a good man and he’s a heck of an athlete. That being said I think his time is up.

  5. Making the jump to each new level is difficult, some are just talented and others fade away. Even getting to Triple A is pretty darn impressive. Lots of guys played Double A wishing they could have gotten that call up.
    He has taken a shot at it, most are too scared to try things fearing failure.

  6. Will never understand his insistence on being an NFL qb. He could’ve made it as a FB/Sp Teamer or as a move TE.

  7. See how much God loves him ?

    I cite this comment because it points out the huge dilemma that Tim Tebow has faced – negative reaction by many because of his public expressions of his religious beliefs. To this day, I think that Tim Tebow could have been a franchise NFL quarterback. Of course the Broncos grabbed up Peyton Manning – a no-brainer. Shame on the New York Jets, they didn’t give him a chance. The exclusively pocket passing offense in New England was never going to fit him, and the radically revised throwing motion that he created for his Eagles tryout – it wasn’t him at his free-wheeling best.

  8. Tebow is a winner at life, doesnt matter what else does, he knows this, others are just bitter

  9. I got to see him play a few weeks ago, and he had a career night. He had a single and a homer, and that probably doubled his batting average.

  10. Love all these haters. They’re either from SEC schools, or Oklahoma or the Ohio State University, who got their ass handed to them when Tebow was at Florida, or they are guys who know they will never be half ass good a person. So they hate.

    By the way, its not Tebow’s fault the Mets continue to employ him.

    Tebow displayed very little to make anyone in the NFL believe he could develop into a franchise QB. I believe his career completion percentage is under 50%. He could run. He could’ve played running back, if he could catch the football well he also could’ve been a TE.

  12. Did you like how Tom Brady played in 2018?
    In 2018,
    Brady scored 31 times in 593 touches, passing or rushing, and won the super bowl.
    Tebow scored 34 times in 549 touches, passing or rushing, in 2010-2012
    They both threw a TD every 19.6 attempts.
    Tebow scored rushing every 11.6 carries.
    Tebow was 19% more efficient at scoring than Brady was in 2018.
    In 2010, Peyton Manning scored 33 TDs with 17 Ints in 697 touches.
    Tim Tebow was 31% more efficient at scoring per touch, passing or rushing, than Manning in 2010/2011.
    No team in the NFL wanted a QB that could outscore Manning and Brady in fewer attempts and carries. Do they hate the mention of Jesus that much?
