    I wonder if he proposed "Tebowing"? Inquiring minds need to know this stuff!
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    A photo shows him on one knee as he proposed.

    Rumor has it that if Miss Universe had said no, that Miss Milky Way was ready to step in.

    Is a .125/.186/.163 line bad? Because that's what Tebow is hitting in Triple A.

    My apologies, it's actually .120 as the batting average. Didn't realize MILB.com hadn't included today's game with the Bats yet.

    When I saw the thread come back, I assumed he had been released. He's improved over the course of the year the last two years at high-A and AA, but he didn't start nearly this poorly, and I think the sample size is enough to know he's not good enough for this level. Too bad.

    Worse is that Million Dollar Mile is basically unwatchable.

    Also, Tom's total not caring about Tebow is once again duly noted.

    He's got time to improve but if he doesn't I think its safe to say he should probably hang it up this fall. Overall I've been very impressed by his results at A/AA but he's a fish out of water right now in AAA.

    What did he do to earn a promotion to AAA?

    I wonder if the Padres offered Garth Brooks a few seasons in their minor leagues and he said “No thanks. I’ll just take the few days in spring training.”

    Honestly, if they were only looking to sell tickets, they'd have left him in the Florida State League. His impact in the Eastern League and the International League on ticket sales is pretty minimal.

    As a Tebow fan being completely honest, he earned the promotion by not doing what he is doing now when he was in A, A+, and AA. If he'd been this bad at any of those levels I don't think they would've moved him up. He actually had a decent AA campaign hitting .273 and OPS of .734 but was aided by a whopping .417 BABIP. The strikeouts were really bad (34.6%). This year he's at 37.9%. All he's had to do is not look completely lost at the other levels and he was going to be moved up. He probably could've benefited from more time in AA to work on his K% but everyone knows this isn't about normal baseball player development. I'm just worried they'll (Mets) bring him up this fall, even if his current level of failure continues.

    He's 31 too. Running out of time.

    The thing to remember about Tim Tebow is that he's not very good at baseball
    “When I use a word,” Trumpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is,” said Trumpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”

    Tebow had been 1-33 over his last 10 games with 14 Ks to 1 BB.

    Leave it to a Reds pitcher to offer a hitter a boost. Tebow pitch hit RBI double off Sal Romano in the loss last night.
