In A Fuck-Up For The Ages, The New York Mets Are Paying A Former Player More Than A Million Dollars Every Single July 1st All The Way Through 2035

no title

Now THIS is the type of contract we can get behind!

The New York Mets are struggling through the summer with a load of injuries and their fair share of off-field drama, but now that it's July 1, the team's focus turns to what is arguably their most ridiculous legacy: on this day every single year, they pay Bobby Bonilla exactly $1.19 million.

There's a problem, though: Bobby Bonilla hasn't played for them since 1999. He hasn't even played Major League Baseball since 2001!!!

And yet the Mets owe him this money every single year on July 1 all the way through 2035. How is this even possible?!

It all starts back in the early '90s, when Bonilla was

Watch This Mets Prospect Catch A Rogue Flying Bat With ONE HAND!

Filed under: ZportzBaseballTrainingMLB

no title

Luis Guillorme is a New York Mets shortstop prospect whose scouting report says he has "the fastest hands in the system."

And he proved it during the Mets' Spring Training matchup against the Marlins on Thursday by making a stunning catch — from the dugout!

In the second inning, Adeiny Hechavarria lost control after swinging at a pitch from Robert Gsellman — and his bat went flying towards the Mets dugout.

Unlike the other players, Guillorme didn't move away from the hurling object, but instinctively caught it barehanded!

The 22-year-old told press he "didn't think much" of catching the flying bat, explaining:

"I just literally saw the bat coming at me and caught it… Usually when stuff like that happens, I really don't get out of the way. I saw it the whole way. I threw my hand at it. The bat just happened to land on it."

Someone move this guy up to the big leagues already!

Ch-ch-check out the awesome barehanded catch (below)!

Tim Tebow Hits A Home Run On His VERY First At Bat As A Pro Baseball Player! Watch!

Filed under: ZportzNFLTim TebowMLBViral: News

no title

Tim Tebow may have just started playing pro baseball, but it already looks like he's ready for the major leagues!

On Wednesday, the former quarterback hit a home run during his first at-bat as a professional player in the New York Mets instructional league!

The 29-year-old hit the homer on the first pitch he saw in the game against the St. Louis Cardinals' minor league team, causing fans to go crazy! (Probably a slightly smaller crowd than he's used to…)

Though he's one of the oldest players in the instructional league games in Florida, Tebow's great first impression at the plate is a good sign the superstar athlete could advance through the Mets' system at full speed.

Unfortunately, the hot streak didn't continue for the 255-pound outfielder, who grounded out in his second at-bat… oh well! That's still batting .500!

But since the ex-NFL champ hasn't been playing ball since his junior year of high school in 2005, we don't blame for being a little rusty!

Ch-ch-check out Tebow's knock one out of the park (below)!!!
