So you're saying there's a chance?
It seems that new Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen has already found himself at the center of controversy after he threw out the possibility on Tuesday that Tim Tebow could actually be on the team's roster for Opening Day next year.
Tim Tebow is likely to begin 2019 at Triple-A, but new #Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen did not rule out the possibility that he could make the @MLB Opening Day roster. Tebow has fully healed from hamate injury, Van Wagenen said. @MLBNetwork— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) November 6, 2018
Tebow, who batted .273 and hit six homers for the Double-A affiliate of the Mets this year, has looked decent considering the minimal experience he's had before attempting to play again.
However, scouts say that the former Heisman-winning Florida Gator is far from playing at the big league level, even for the Mets. It's quite clear that bringing Tebow up would purely be a publicity stunt.
Mets’ Tim Tebow was selected for the Eastern League Double-A All-Star Game. He’s hitting .261/.335/.398, 5 HR, 30 RBI, 107 wRC+ in 236 plate appearances.— Devan Fink (@DevanFink) June 29, 2018
One more important thing to note here is that Van Wagenen used to be Tebow's agent before he took the Mets job.
Either way, seeing Tebow on the Mets would surely drive in attendance, so I can't help but root for this to happen.
