Will Tim Tebow be better than Michael Jordan?

Will Tim Tebow be better than Michael Jordan?

Tim Tebow has a knack for making a good first impression. He pounced on the first pitch that he saw at the Double-A level for a three-run homer. That's why he's here - moving up the chain. He also wasn't particularly effective at the plate past year, when he struck out 26 percent of the time with Class-A Columbia and High-A St. Lucie and slugged.347 with a.309 OBP. The Rumble Ponies had no such trouble connecting off Portland starter Teddy Stankiewicz.

After posting a less-than-stellar.656 OPS across two levels of Single-A ball in 2017, the Mets made a surprise announcement this spring: Tebow was earning a promotion with a jump to Double-A.

He mashes a two-run homer to left field.

Kyrie Irving done for the season, according to report
Clearly, this isn't the news Celtics fans, or the Celtics themselves, or certainly Kyrie and his family, were hoping to hear. The Boston Celtics are now the 2nd seed out of the Eastern conference despite Irving not having played since March 11.

When Tebow batted in the fifth, he worked the count full and the crowd began to chant his last name before he grounded out. "It's something our team really fed off".

"He's another ballplayer. I understand all the excitement because it's Tim Tebow", Wilpon said before the game. The Mets have said he could be in the big leagues by the end of the season, if all goes well. So he hits a buck seventy-five, if he gets all the other players with his passion and attitude and desire, it's fantastic. He's a 30-year-old playing Double-A for the first time.
