get how this game works

Those who think Tim Tebow’s presence somewhere on a low level minor league team will block some youngster’s dream don’t exactly know how this wheel works.

Understand that teams employ a couple hundred minor leaguers to provide a forum for perhaps 20 to 25 special ones to have teams with which to play and games in which to perform. canada goose outlet online uk Rivera. Period.

Organizations sign high end amateur athletic lottery tickets all the time and see whetherthey can be infused with nuanced baseball moves and skills. Most fail, yet no organization stops trying, hence all the investment in the athletic players of Cuba, canada goose black friday sale some of whom are in their late 20s, like Tebow.

In other words, this machine was operating before the Mets bought Tebow. No player none who demonstrates he has even a scintilla of a chance of making it to canada goose outlet nyc The Show is going to be blocked by canada goose black canada goose uk shop friday sale Tebow.

Those who think Tebow’s presence will cause a media storm that somehow derails future Mets teams also don’t know how that wheel works.

First, the chance Tebow ever plays for the Mets is maybe 1 percent. canada goose outlet online Will he make it to a major league spring training camp? Maybe. Will he be allowed to come up to be part of a spring training game? Perhaps.

If so, remember the Mets had canada goose outlet parka Garth Brooks in canada goose clearance uniform for a while one spring. It created quite a stir. Like when the Yankees allowed Billy Crystal to play in a spring game. It had no, zero, nil impact on the regular season.

The Yankees dealt with so much Alex Rodriguez craziness for so many years, but here is something to know about that: It starts with a furor, feels as if it never will ebb and then it does. Rather quickly. The situation normalizes of having a “distraction” around. Routines become routines again and short attention spans flit away to the next Kardashian moment. Reporters race to the next “distraction.”

So if blocking someone’s dream is not a big deal and the distraction issue is minimal, what is the downside of the Mets signing Tebow to canada goose outlet a minor league contract?

Sandy Canada Goose Jackets Alderson said: “This decision was strictly driven by baseball. This was not something driven by marketing considerations or anything of the sort.”

Even if this signing were just for selfish, business and/or financial reasons all around, so what? I would like to live in a world in which the famous did not get special dispensation. I would like to cheap canada goose live in a canada goose uk outlet world in which everyone’s intentions were goose outlet canada pure, not polluted by finances, etc.

This canada goose outlet jackets world does not exist. Already, the Mets are going to and leave Instructional League a few days a week. Like Yoenis Cespedes canada goose playing golf while hobbled, the optics are not good cheap Canada Goose on this. But suddenly we are going to care about Instructional League attendance. Has anyone cared about that before today?

If Tebow is doing this to sell a book or keep his brand in the public consciousness, fine. If the Mets are doing this to grab headlines or sell some tickets in Brooklyn, fine this organization once gave us Sidd Finch. If this is a favor to the agency canada goose outlet uk that also represents Yoenis Cespedes, fine.

Again, I wish I lived in a world where these never were considerations. But they are, and all sides would be silly https://www.st-edwards-cam.org.uk not to maximize the moment.

The only issue would be if Tebow ever were brought to canada goose outlet canada the majors without earning it. The Mets did that favor for Tom Glavine by promoting his 30 year old brother, Mike, in September 2003.

Alderson said the Mets canada goose outlet in usa are willing to spend the time and effort to find out if a guy canada goose outlet who hasn’t played baseball regularly in more than a decade and was born 11 days before Justin Upton can somehow make the majors. The odds against are staggering.

That is the only thing the Mets and Tebow cannot play with the odds. He either earns promotions up the ladder especially all the way or he doesn’t. Breaking faith there canada goose coats would be the only major transgression.
