Here is an excerpt from The MMQB’s big feature about Tim Tebow attempting to become a baseball player. I haven’t been able to read the rest of the story, because as soon as I read this part my eyes rolled so far into the back of my head that now all I can see is my own brain stem:

Van Wagenen humored him. He organized a workout for Tebow in Florida alongside a few Cuban prospects, and after putting Tebow through a series of hitting drills, he came away … impressed. Tebow’s swing clearly needed work, but when he connected, he could really drive the ball. After watching a few drills, Van Wagenen asked Tebow if he wanted to stop. He had seen enough, and Tebow hadn’t swung in a while; his hands must have been sore. But Tebow shook him off and kept swinging. He would show Van Wagenen how badly he wanted this. Not until the workout ended did Van Wagenen notice the red seeping through Tebow’s batting gloves. He had taken so many swings that blisters on his hands had burst open, and he’d just kept going. Tebow peeled off the gloves. Blood was gushing from his palms.

Kill me.

Fuck the season... Save the entire organization forever. The Mets clearly sold their souls for the 69/86 championships. We need an exorcism.

He's getting called up in September

Especially if injuries derail us and we're out of the race

About that, a timely article....

Quote:
As a baseball player, Tim Tebow draws plenty of skepticism. But general managers around the low Class A South Atlantic League have no doubts about his ability to bring people to the park. The Tebow effect is real, and when it comes to attendance, it’s spectacular.

Opponent Tebow Non-Tebow Difference
Augusta 4,819 2,647 82%
Rome 4,635 2,593 79%
Hickory 4,375 1,988 120%
Overall 4,607 2,399 92%
In the first month of the season, Tebow’s Columbia Fireflies played in front of an average of 4,856 fans every time they took the field.

Columbia has obviously been the biggest beneficiary of the Tebow effect. The Fireflies led the SAL with an average of 5,103 fans per game, which was the second-highest in Class A. That’s 1,400 fans per game more than the team averaged over the same stretch last year when the Fireflies were opening a new park after relocating from Savannah, Ga.

But to better understand the Tebow effect on attendance, we looked at Columbia’s road games. When Columbia hit the road in the first month of the season, they played in front of an average of 4,607 fans. When those same teams hosted non-Tebow teams, they averaged 2,399 fans.

Based on the April attendance data, the Tebow effect appears to be roughly 2,210 fans per night. Minor league teams estimate that the average fan will spend $20 per person if they come to the ballpark. That counts ticket sales, concessions and souvenirs. So Tebow is worth roughly an additional $44,200 per night.


If Tebow remains in the SAL all season, that would mean an additional $3.1 million in revenue over the course of 70 Columbia road games. That doesn’t even count the revenue he generates for Columbia.

Rome had two sellouts they wouldn't have had if not for Tebow. Sucked for them the other day was an education day game. They sell those well, sometimes selling out the games. So the help with attendance wasn't as big during that game.
