    The Mets should bring up Tebow in September

    Whoa, wait a sec here, am I nuts??

    I'm gonna put on my totally fake GM hat and say that this should happen.

    Why you ask?

    The Mets look like they'll be totally out of it by then and assuming attendance will tank, why not use him as a drawing card?

    Look, his numbers certainly won't be worthy and the team would be foolish to say otherwise, but they also won't just come out and say it's an attendance push either.

    Instead, they can spin it in a way like he deserves it or the fans want him and the team is out of contention, etc etc.

    What say you?

    I'm old fashioned when it comes to this. Players in their system have been dogging it for 5 years in the minors and have never sniffed the show. I ask myself one question when a players is promoted to the majors. Did they deserve it? Granted Tebow has proved many of us wrong, but the Mets shouldn't promote him just to put bums in the seats. They need to think about creating a positive culture long term for their players. I know I'd be pissed as a player if I've been a loyal employee for the past 5 years, hit near .300 every year and some celebrity gets promoted over me.

    He would not only bring in fans, but would get them coverage!

    100% agree. If he is promoted to the majors that means someone else isn't.

    Should MLB teams resort to "stunts" for some coverage and ticket sales? They are a Billion dollar team, the revenue boost for a month for a puppet I don't think is worth it. If Tebow isn't going to help you more than another Call-up (and I believe there are more qualified Minor Leaguers) then let him stay in the minors. He is a draw there making money from ticket sales for those clubs.

    Is Tebow on the 40 man roster? That could be an issue.

    Tebow is currently raking but I wouldn't want him to lose rookie eligibility when he can just start next year

    He'd probably be an upgrade over whatever the Mets are currently running out there.

    Tickets and fans drive the business for sure the casual fan probably knows tim tebow before Dominic Smith or amed Rosario...I said CASUAL fan, but if I was the gm I want to bring up players that actually could make the team from spring training in 2018 to see what they can do. If the Mets want to see ticket sales go up all they need to do is another syndergaard bobblehead day. Maybe I could actually get one if they did it again...
