Baseball Scout Tears Tim Tebow To Shreds With Scouting Report

tebow1_40021

Beyond the mainstream headlines of Tim Tebow crushing a home run in his very first at bat and the former QB helping a fan who has a seizure at the game, it may be all just a silver lining to cover up his poor play.

Though Tebow’s high school stats were above average, in no way does that translate to success at the next level, especially after an almost decade-long hiatus away from the game.

Sunday, ESPN baseball insider Keith Law issued a scouting report on Tebow, and it wasn’t pretty.

It reads:

“Tim Tebow is in the Arizona Fall League. He might be better suited to playing in an Arizona high school league. His presence here is a farce, and he looks like an imposter pretending to have talent he does not possess.”

Tebow the baseball player is not a baseball player; he’s a washed-up quarterback who has size and nothing else. His swing is long, and he wields the bat like someone who hasn’t played the sport in more than a decade, which he hasn’t. He can’t catch up to 90 mph, which is well below the major league average for a fastball, and was cutting through fastballs in the zone on Wednesday night. He rolled over twice on fastballs, which is something you generally see professional hitters do only on off-speed stuff, and he showed below-average running speed. In left field, his routes look like those of a wide receiver, although he managed to eventually make his way around to a fly ball in left.”

In short, there’s absolutely no baseball justification for Tebow to be here.”

“Chasing celebrities is no way to run a player-development department, an organization or a league. Everyone involved in the decision should be embarrassed when they’re done counting their money.”

Law is a baseball insider with decades worth of scouting experience, so the comments are reputable.
