Pete Rose. Derek Jeter. Yasiel Puig. Curt Schilling. Tim Tebow.

Three of them are great baseball players, one of them is a good baseball player who may, one day, be great and the fifth is, I’m quite sure, a nice fellow. But they do have one thing in common: if we write a post about them here, all y’all will click on it like crazy, even if you complain about it.

It’s sort of like that old Yogi Berra line about the restaurant: Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.

So, yes, I’ve laid all my cards on the table with respect to Tim Tebow content. I post it because people look at it. And you have laid yours on the table as well. You look at it, even if you say you hate it. Doesn’t it feel good to be honest about such things? Now, sit back and watch some minor league dingers:
