I have no issue with this - he puts fannies in the minor league seats. The difference between pre and post Tebow for the Fireflies in Columbia in 2017 was stark. At least 4000 spectators less per game, iirc.

Tebow doesn't impact anyone on the field. If he were a catcher or SS and were blocking a legit prospect then it would be worth caring about. He's an OF in an organization with almost zero OF depth. On paper AAA OF's Kaczmarski who they clearly don't think much of, Mora, Urena and likely filler. Go Teebs.

He'll be playing LF in Syracuse over Dom Smith.

That's the Mets fault for 1. Not giving Dom a chance 2. Not leaving Dom at 1b. Dom Smith is not a major league OF, he's just not. If they really think so little of Dom that Tim Tebow is the LF and Dom is on the bench then cut bait with Dom now and deal with the repercussions should he do well.

It would be foolish of them to leave Dom flapping out in the wind next season. It's going to hurt his value to skip him over and spend another year in the minors. I'd figure him to be a prime trade chip. And before anyone jumps on me, by prime I don't mean necessarily highly valuable; I mean that he's clearly a surplus asset that they are reasonably likely to cash in.

Funny question from @fangraphs chat-"The Yankee Way: I like that ss Rosario on the Mets, but that beard of his is the most ghastly thing I have ever seen. Any chance he shaves it off before next season?" #Mets

2019 Orioles figure to be awful again. Doubt they need a 29 year old arbitration eligible RP. Mets should look into him https://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?p ... #pitchtype #Mets

Why? Is making a fair deal that benefits both sides really entirely out of the question?

Talk about setting up an unreasonable bar... anyway, what sort of player are you expecting he's going to become? I assume the answer is the type that's going to blossom once he gets traded.

What type of player in return would you consider equitable?

I would bet my mortgage that Dom stays and Alonso gets traded. Especially if he is as horrendous at 1b as they say he is.
