I’ve always enjoyed the Tim Tebow project, but refusing to be interviewed is not cool. Being a prospect in the major league clubhouse means talking with media. Everyone else does it. #Mets


Little bit damned if you do, damned if you don't.

If Tebow is available, he gets swarmed, then people kill him for being a sideshow, circus, etc.

Equating this to a typical minor leaguer and saying "everyone does it" implies that Lennon is also going up to Kevin Kaczmarski for quotes and, uh, I doubt that.

He himself works in the media. It's just not a good look. At the very least he should be willing to give the "pool" 5-10 minutes and then shut it down. People want to know about Tebow, part of the job is to give them that.

Pete Alonso is a big thick boy.

Wheeler looked good, working at 94-97. Don't think the gun was juiced much as Wisler was barely cracking 90.

Someone told me it's hot but not THAT hot. He had him touching 95.

Going to supplement this with a "His head and bat look too small for the rest of him."

I also don't think he's in the best shape of his life. Though that may not mean anything.

I stand by my prediction that Alonso ends the season as a big time prospect because of his bat.

Dom Smith finally revealed that he was late for the team meeting this morning. That’s why he was scratched

Smith must look at Alonso and think "I'm not in such bad shape". Which probably isn't a good thing.
