He’ll never make it in either sport if he jumps back and forth. Besides, he’s already been an NFL starter, so why go backwards?
he'll change his mind, He loves football, and he knows an offensive genius like Spurrier will design plays to his strengths. They will win the inaugural AAF Championship.
Not if he thinks there's even one iota of a possibility he could be called up to the majors. And at this point it's still a possibility.
Mehhhh.... I don't know. Tebow is the sort of kid SOS always moved to TE.
I don't know Tim personally, but perhaps some of the reason that he is playing Baseball is to have a larger effect on this world. Sure he plays in small towns, but I bet his presence makes a difference. He might play football again but I don't think he will. And of course any team in central Fl would want him, he will create buzz and sell tickets.
He will never make it in MLB. No one is bringing up or trading for a 32 yoa AA player. He should just have fun, whereever that is. Frankly, I hope it is not with SOS. Poor fit for both. Hell, Chris Leak or John Brantley make a bunch more sense for SOS. So do hundreds of other guys.
Not even a team as pathetic as the Mets would call up someone who strikes out in over 40% of his ABs and has an OPS of .736 at the AA level. He should just go have fun playing in the one-off semi-pro league and start his life as a fundraiser/public speaker.
He is living his life and loving every minute. Im sure he would like to move up but it doesn't make or break him. Tim gives it his all no matter what he does. I hope he somehow makes it and leaves his critics shaking their heads.
Plenty of teams love players like that.
Yeah but he hit over 450 home runs. In the Majors.
Tebow has a rational mind, but is supremely influence by faith & hope. So, giving up on any goal (baseball) would be tarnishing his power of "faith & hope". Still, as a kid Tim felt like an all-around athlete. So early-planted in his brain is the template that "the baseball player" bats around .300 and hits 20+ HRs. Tim sees he's not there (yet?). Joining Spurrier, joining the locale of Orlando, would produce sky-high attendance & fanship = much greater $, much realer fame-demands for speaking, book sales = a better life than minor league baseball. If SOS were to believe in Brantley, he'd need to bring Kerwin in - I know he believes in Kerwin.
And, what, 20,000 strike outs?
Solid June so far boys
Give or take.

The back and forth here takes me back 25 years to MJ's decision to retire from basketball to pursue his dream of playing MLB. That was a true WTF moment. The difference is, Jordan had something to lose. He was the world's greatest basketball player on a team that had just won its third straight NBA title. Leaving that for riding on a minor-league bus? Tebow's running out of chances to pursue his dream. I think he's gotta take baseball to the complete end before he considers offers like Spurrier's, although I would selfishly relish the chance to see the pair work together.
Braves, Phils, and Nats are running away for a three team race down the stretch in the NL East, leaving the Mets way behind. In September, the Mets will have 13 home games, 3 against Philly, 3 against the Braves, and 7 against Miami, a team that sucks worse than they do. They will need to sell tickets, therefore they will call Tebow up to put people in the seats and make some gate revenue.
Pardon the skepticism, but I have always believed somehow there was something more to the story of him retiring and pursuing baseball. Not sure what though.....
There was plenty of speculation at the time that Jordan had reached a plea deal with David Stern over gambling. I don't think so. He came back only after he had thoroughly gotten baseball out of his system and realized it was a dead-end road. I think it took until then for him to realize how much he missed basketball and pursuing championships. Remember, too, his father was murdered only a few months prior, and his father had wanted him to pursue his baseball dream. It was Jordan's way of honoring him. Too bad, too, because the Bulls likely would have won titles the two seasons he was out, making it eight in a row by the time his Chicago career was done.
