The Tim Tebow experience will now be moving away from South Carolina while heading south to Florida. On Sunday afternoon, the New York Mets announced that Tebow is being promoted from Single-A Columbia to Advanced Single-A Port St. Lucie.

Simple to understand, the Mets GM is trying to help boost more than one of his affiliates with Tebow ticket sales. His on-field numbers don't warrant this promotion, but to switch him with someone who will never make the majors either and help out one of their affiliates is a great move from an organizational standpoint to manufacture good will.

Simple $$s. The St. Lucie Mets are owned by the parent club - the Columbia Fireflies are not.

Before he's even played a game for them, the SL Mets sold more than 6k tickets for tonight's game. Not bad when you're only averaging 1500 fans a game.

If anybody is going to make money, might as well be the big club, in their opinion.

What are the chances he gets called up in September in an effort to sell tickets?

Tebow played a game here recently against our local minor league team (Hagerstown Suns - affiliate of the Washington Nationals). The ballpark was packed and Tebow went out of his way to show appreciation to the fans:

1) He was available before and after the game for photos and autographs. He didn't leave until everyone got an autograph who wanted one. He must have been there at least 3 hours - smiling and chatting with everyone the entire time.

2) He was very personable with everyone who called out to him. He would stop over and gladly shake hands and pose for pictures. He had a kind word for everyone and a smile on his face the entire time.

3) He made a special effort to connect with the kids and anyone with special needs. Fan in a wheelchair and can't get near the field? No problem. Tebow climbed over the fence and went up to the fan in the stands.

Some people are really dogging Tebow and doubting his baseball playing abilities. I would much rather cheer for a guy like Tebow who tries hard on every play and acts like just a regular guy instead of the "divas" who are great players but terrible people.

If the Mets don't rally and make a postseason run, I would say it could happen.

Tebow is performing very well.

https://www.yahoo.com/sports/tim-tebow-exceeding-expectations-high-153819927.html

When Tim Tebow got a minor league promotion to the high-A St. Lucie Mets, the move was widely mocked as an attention grab by the Mets organization, putting the former football star in a higher class of baseball than his skills could justify. But so far, Tebow is proving the doubters wrong.

Tebow hit a walk-off home run to win Thursday night’s game and has very respectable numbers so far in St. Lucie, with a .972 OPS, a .327 batting average, 10 RBIs and three home runs. He’s currently on an 11-game hitting streak.

“So many guys played so well tonight,” Tebow said after the game. “I just wanted to try and come through in the end and help win it for our team. I’m just thankful to get that opportunity. It was a lot of fun to celebrate with all the guys. We’ve been working to get a lot better, and I feel like over the last couple of weeks we’ve really been improving as a team, so it feels good.”

Tebow is also, of course, a big success at the box office, where fans are buying up tickets and arriving early to watch him warm up.

Those business considerations may be the reason the Mets signed Tebow in the first place, but it’s hard to argue with his results at the plate. Tebow will turn 30 in a month, and he hadn’t played baseball since he was a teenager. Far from being a laughingstock, as so many thought he would be, Tebow is turning into an impressive minor leaguer.

Tebow is an outstanding athlete. I don't think you can ever regain lost reflexes, and 12 years of no baseball is a bitch, but I do believe that if he felt like playing minor league baseball for the next five years, he may actually work his ass off until he makes the majors. If Rick Ankiel can go to the minors and turn himself into an All-Star as an OF after failing at pitching, there's no reason why Tebow can't hit too.

The dream is dead. For now.

For all of Tim Tebow's resonating popularity in the New York Mets' minor-league system, his slim chances of making it to the big leagues this season appear to have been shut down.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Friday he doesn't expect the team to give Tebow his MLB debut in 2017, telling reporters he does not foresee calling up the minor-league star in September when rosters expand, according to Kevin Kernan of the New York Post.

Since being promoted to the High-A St. Lucie Mets in late June, Tebow has been playing some of the best baseball of his short career, slashing .327/.421/.551 in 49 at-bats. The 28-year-old has also slugged three home runs, though none have been as big as his latest, a walk-off, opposite-field bomb on Thursday to give St. Lucie a 5-4 win over the Daytona Tortugas.

Did anyone seriously think he was getting called up this year?

He's a good person.

Hit a walk off home run last night. I like this guy too. He seems sincere in his beliefs which are the polar opposite of my beliefs. I don't think he'll ever be caught with tranny hookers and and krokodil. Even though if he was my already high opinion of him would shoot into the stratosphere.
Here's the home run.
