Human reality TV show Tim Tebow has been promoted from the Low-A Columbia Fireflies to the High-A Port St. Lucie Mets.
Not because of his play on the field against players 7 to 10 years younger than him, but because the Mets decided it’s time for some other team and league to bring the circus to town and can make more money off him rather than showing re-runs of him to the South Atlantic League.
Now, this is not going to be a story about whether or not Tim deserves or should be called up to a higher league (he shouldn’t) but a look at some of his stats this season.
In 64 games with the Columbia Fireflies ol’ Timbo is hitting a robust .220, getting on base at a clip of .311, “slugging” a stunning .336 for an OPS of .648. Again, all for a 29 year-old who is playing against guys who are sometimes a decade younger than him.
After hitting two home runs in the first three games of the year, Timmy has hit just one donger since, back on May 20. So it’s been more than a month since his last homer, the one thing people thought he might be able to do in baseball.
Oh and he’s fielding at an awful .879 clip with seven errors in just 44 games in the field. He’s not good.
Here’s his full stat line if you really want to take a look at the carnage he’s made fans sit through this season.
But wait. What’s that I see just a little past the halfway point of his line stats.
Could it be? IT IS!
Timmy you dog! Nicely done. This marks the first time in Tim’s life (so he claims) that he’s been involved in a 69.
Thank you for reading this update on Tim Tebow attempting to play baseball.
