    I see where you could think that I might neglect that, but I hoped that that would be embedded in the idea that it was good enough in my book. To answer your question, though. Negative! I like where your thinking is at, though.

    A long way to go to beat Aaron Judge's rookie record.

    Tebow struggling in Triple-A; still a work in progress
    By Gatorsports

    By JOHN KEKIS AP Sports Writer
    SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Six weeks into his latest baseball adventure, Tim Tebow is still struggling to find his stroke with the Syracuse Mets at the top rung of minor league ball.

    He remains unflappable in spite of the numbers.
    “I think I’m improving. I’m working, developing,” Tebow said Thursday before the Mets played a night game. “I think I’m getting better, adapting to some really good players, and I think that’s important.”

    The former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner out of the University of Florida is on a first-place team in the International League that’s thrived on its pitching, and Tebow’s offensive contributions have been minimal. In Syracuse’s first 23 games, Tebow had just 10 hits and was batting .130 with 32 strikeouts. A recent surge of hits in six of seven games that included a game-winning, pinch-hit double boosted the average to .158, still last in the league and well below the dreaded Mendoza Line, but encouraging nonetheless.

    “It definitely helps with confidence,” said Tebow, who turns 32 in mid-August. “More than just confidence, getting into a rhythm. I think sometimes if you’re not in rhythm you can press a little bit, swing at pitches you don’t want to swing at. But when you’re in a rhythm, it just flows a little bit better. I think that’s important.”

    Was it mentioned that Tebow hit his first home run for AAA on Sunday? Good for him. Hope the light is coming on for him. It has been a rough year, but that is to be expected with the step up in pitching.

    Alonso hit #16 last night to tie it up 5-5 in the 8th.

    Go to ESPN and see the highlight. It was destroyed to left. 417 feet but it was hit a mile in the air and well over the foul pole.
