If you are a baseball fan, you must have heard by now that the Mets have signed Tim Tebow to a minor league contract. There have been rumors that the organization could decide to send Tim to the Arizona Fall League. Keep in mind this is a league which we`ve been told the Cubs are going to send Ian Happ, Eloy Jimenez, Victor Caratini, and Duane Underwood, along with others. All those players have serious potential to one day reach the majors. Those players I just named have all been toiling in the minors for a long while to hone their skills. I assume all the other 29 organizations will be sending their top prospects to the AFL as well. If the Mets are foolish enough to send Tim Tebow to the AFL in 2016, I suggest he will be eaten alive. He will be overmatched bigtime, especially at the dish. To expect an athlete who has not played the game competitively for more than ten years, to step into that cauldron, is a bridge too far, I suggest. But hey, the Mets signed him; so that proves the organization is capable of making asinine and ludicrous decisions.
