    Talk of Tim’s being moved up to AA-Binghamton is heating up again. And NY Newsday just released this Port St Lucie Tebow’s Greatest moments.

      The good performance seems real, not just fleeting. Amazing how players do that for years on end. No wonder they are praised. It’s good to be reminded that baseball is loaded with nuance when you’re awake.

      I thought he should have gone directory to Binghamton from Columbia. He’s done very well since he was promoted to St. Lucie.

      If/when Tim is promoted to AA, he will likely start with a home game. Key near term dates, July 27, beginning four game homestand with New Hampshire and three game series beginning August 1st with Trenton.

      Pitcher Chris Flexen just got called up from Binghamton to the big show. Mets are needing pitching desperately. I don’t know if this might play in some type of Tebow move to AA as roster spots shuffle. Stay tuned.

        I’ve not been able to find out much about his Contract with the Mets. Particularly how long it’s for.

        It was a Newsday SportsWriter I think…maybe even the one who did this article…who said months ago the Mets were going to move him up to Citi Field eventually. (Unlike some others, they might have actually listened to Mets and other Team Execs and not just to “Unnamed Scouts”.) Anyway whoever the Columnist was he said the Mets should lock Tim up in a long-term Contract early. Before he has a chance to Play in the Minors and show he actually has some Game and risk losing him to another Team.

        So that says they may have a big problem on their hands because clearly he was wanted from the start by numerous Teams and would have done nothing since except make them even more interested. Probably pushed a few off the Bubble as well. Teams who said the “distraction” bothered them who now may have decided “You know what? This kind of ‘distraction’ is one we can live with.”

    I’ll be happy for him, but I hope he stays in A until after the Charlotte road trip; I have good tickets 🙂

      I pray you get to see Tebow play, that is the only thing that has bothered me about Tebow being promoted, those will advance tickets can miss out if he is moved. I too hope he is promoted but hope after you get to see him play TheMascotArmy!

        They really have to fast-track him. The sooner he moves to the next level (whether that’s AA or straight to AAA-Las Vegas, which is also a possibility) the more serious and less “circus” this whole thing becomes.

        Also the easier it will be to create a spot on the 40-Man Roster and call him up in September.

        We saw what happened with the Jets and the Eagles. With the Jets, they wanted a scapegoat and Tim instantly went from being the Heir Apparent to the “Mistake that cost Tannenbaum his job” as GM.

        In Philly, Chip was so far out on a limb with Bradford he couldn’t possibly keep Tim after he had crowds shouting “Tebow” in that Thursday Night Pre-Season Game. There was enough TebowTime in his performance that the push to start him over Bradford would have been deafening. But no way could Kelly do that without admitting trading for Bradford in the 1st place was a huge mistake.

        So now we have Sandy Alderson under the hotlamps because of all the injuries and the awful Mets Season. There’s a good chance the Wilpons will say “Who cares what the Media says? Bring Tebow up.” There’s also the chance Sandy will do it just to spit in the Media’s face.

        But we’ve seen these scenarios play out too many times where other problems with a Franchise ended in Tim being the sacrificial lamb. I don’t think that will happen. But the best shot overall is move him up and have him continue to Play like he is now.

        Holding him down because Fans have bought tickets could end up backfiring on the whole Tebow Baseball thing.

        • Danny says:

          Couple quick thoughts:

          I’m still convinced that the team the Eagles built in 2015 was perfectly built for Tebow. There was no way Bradford and Sanchez could run the right offense for the team they had. It was obviously evident in that season. Chip Kelly made a huge mistake in releasing Tebow…and now Chip is out of football.

          I do think Tebow is ready to be moved up. The logical place would be Binghamton with Valentino Pascucci, who can take Tim to the next level and he can show him how to hit 500 foot moonshots.

          There’s nothing that requires Tim to have to go to AA first, he can go straight to AAA if the Mets want him there.

          I think Alderson can be a media troller, which is one of the things I like about him.

        • TheMascotArmy says:

          It would be a huge mistake to promote him before the 29th (Charlotte game). The day after, on the other hand, would be a brilliant move!

            Lol. I bet that game will draw over 8,000 people. All of the lower sections are sold out.
