Three games into his baseball career and Tim Tebow has already put two balls over the wall during a three game stretch. Two homeruns in his first three games is an impressive start and is definitley a lot more than I expected this early into his tenure in the MILB. I've doubted Tebow as much as the next guy, although I'll never doubt him again after him proving me wrong once again. Now, I do believe Tebow can do anything he puts his mind to fully, and if that's making it to the major leagues, I wholeheartedly believe he'll do it.
In three games Tebow has 3 hits in 13 at bats leaving him with .233 average, however he's got 2 home runs, and 5 RBI's. If he can get that average up while continuing to produce power and drive in runs, I believe his rise to the major leagues can be a lot quicker than expected. Am I being overly sold on two homeruns, maybe, but Tebow's God complex seems to reign superior over all rational thinking, so I'm just going to ride the wave with him. Why not?
Regardless, the Mets are the real winners getting millions of dollars in free marketing essentially. Tim Tebow is filling minor league stadiums, his apparel I'm sure is making the Mets a fortune, and he's the only minor leaguer actually getting coverage. All of that for a minor league contract seems like a pretty good deal to me, smart move by the Mets taking a shot on this icon. If Tebow actually develops into a solid player, which will literally shock the world, they'll get an everyday player out of it, so what's the harm with the move. Oh, it'll take away a spot from a prospect right, not at all, and anyone that believes that knows nothing about the minor league system, so I won't even dive into that debate. Tebow keep on pulling off miracles my dude, the 30 for 30 on how you shocked the sports world is going to be a legendary one.
