The most in-demand free agent heading into this baseball offseason may just be a guy who hasn’t played the game in a decade. And the Atlanta Braves need to be the team that signs him.

In what’s already been a sorry season, the Atlanta Braves just dropped their seventh straight game 11-9 to the Washington Nationals at Turner Field. The Braves’ worst-in-Major League Baseball record now stands at 44-79 with just 39 games to play. Their second straight 95-loss season is almost guaranteed and the first 100 loss season since the second Reagan administration is looking like a safer bet with each passing day.

A once-proud organization has big plans to turn this around with highly-touted young prospects in the near future, but the simple truth is if it was that easy, every team would do it. At the end of the day the Braves need to keep building and they need to give fans something to get excited about.

Enter Tim Tebow.

The 28-year-old former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback announced earlier this month that he’s been training for a career in baseball and that he plans to work out and showcase his talents for big league teams.

Tebow’s announcement was met with skepticism by many. But in front offices around Major League Baseball, executives’ ears perked up at the news. Whether they think he can make an impact in the lineup or just at the ticket office, general managers will definitely give Tebow a long look this offseason.

Here now are five reasons why the Atlanta Braves must outbid all other suitors for Tebow’s services.

    Great news!

    Even the most optimistic projections about Tim reaching the majors is about 3 years. It will be a long time to wait but the journey there will be fun for us to watch.

    I remember all the football articles about Tim that were in essence “click bait”, most having titles similar to “Tebow Rumors: Is (insert NFL team here) ready to sign Tebow?” I just saw another one today.

    This baseball article with the 5 step reasons which brought the reader to another advertising landing page is just more “click bait”. Although somewhat interesting, it was more putting the cart before the horse.

    That’s probably why I wasn’t too concerned about the baseball memorabilia stories that were out recently. So many not so legit news organizations or bloggers would simply write a supposed Tebow rumor and post it with some ads to get people to come to the site. Lots of people profited off Tim’s name. If he gets some revenue from memorabilia that’s OK with me.

    Now for the nitty gritty. Some pundits dismiss Tim’s chances of making it to MLB. There’s no guarantees, however I place his chances much higher than the typical 29 year old that hasn’t played competitive ball in a while.

    I believe one of his biggest assets is his experience in the NFL. An athlete playing at that high level must have the temperament, skills and athleticism to be able to excel. He has all that, which already places him in a great position for future success as a MLB player.

    Tim knows baseball and has been practicing for a while now. His natural abilities seem to be blossoming with good coaching and I believe he can take that up level by level as he faces more experienced players along the way.

    I’m keeping my eyes open for this advertised tryout and see where this goes. Here’s hoping for the best for Tim!

      Clickbait is another word for people are interested. So fine. If it’s gonna be clcikbait let it be positive articles instead of negative ones.

      I doubt the 3 years. Two at the outside would be my guess. At least for some serious up time. The only reason a Team would slow things down would be if they thought it would wreck his development. Tim’s a Power Hitter. They tend to get moved up faster anyway. But he’s also someone a Team would be under constant pressure to move through the Farm as quickly as possible and up to the Bigs. It’s easy for Commentators to make their rationalizations now. But when the rubber meets the road of actual daily Fan and recurring Media scrutiny a Team will have to fish or cut bait quick.
