The Mets have better things to do.

You might remember them from last year. When they went to a World Series. When they won the National League pennant.

They had better things to do. And they did them. And they won.

One year later, they’re back to their old tricks and they’re trying to make Mets fans ooh and aah, hoping they’ll forget this disappointing season.

It’s a parlor trick. Don’t fall for it.

Look in their left hand, the one they’re shaking to get your attention. But know the penny is in the right hand.

Which is the wrong hand, as always.

The Mets had to borrow the penny, too, because they didn’t have one of their own. That’s the galling part. They can’t even pay for a free agent, but now they’re wasting money on Tim Tebow?

A corn-fed publicity stunt is still a publicity stunt. And it’s a distraction.

It’s a distraction the Mets don’t need.

What could Tebow’s $100,000 bonus have bought for a franchise without money? How about $100,000 of preventive medicine?

You know, to keep their young pitchers healthy.

Oops.

While the Nationals are busy pushing their lead in the NL East to double digits, the Mets are signing ex-football players to play baseball. It’s a real Hail Mary of a move, except you know they won’t be able to throw the ball more than 20 yards.

Say, that reminds me of a football player I used to watch.

Meet the mess, indeed.

Well, seeing as Phillies didn't use a third-person pronoun, I'm gonna go with a big fat no to that question.

Yes, of course I could have.

By the way, the Giants just blew a 9th inning lead on their day off.

Well, Tebow will be an interesting case study. I mean, he's still going to do his ESPN job while he's in the Instructional League. I kinda hope he does well, but I know he probably won't and will flame out somewhere between High A and AA. If he does make it to the Majors, I'll sell my original copy of Power Pros 07.

Aside: Grant Brisbee is a great writer, and he's one of my favorites, even though he's a Giants fan.
