Before we see Tim Tebow on a baseball diamond, lets assume that any team signing Tebow would be doing it as a marketing play. Adidas NMD R2 Primeknit . He would, without a doubt, be the biggest name in minor league baseball since one Michael Jordan was barnstorming with the White Soxs Double-A affiliate, the Birmingham Barons. With that in mind, here are the top five teams were guessing would be interested for business reasons alone:1. Miami Marlins: Although they struggle with game attendance, the Marlins love buzz and they arent scared to make it (see: bringing back Barry Bonds as a hitting instructor). Plus, theyre in Florida, which significantly increases Tebows value. If theres money to be made off Tebow here, the Marlins can cash in more than anyone. Why? Because its not obvious that Tebow can get to the big leagues, so the money opportunity comes at the lower levels. They have spring training in Florida, their high-Class A minor league team is in Jupiter and their Double-A team is in Jacksonville, where Tebow played his high school ball.2. Colorado Rockies: Although Peyton Manning came in and led the Broncos to the Super Bowl, theres still plenty of love for Tim Tebow in Colorado, the only place in his NFL career where he made some impact. Also, they have a Class A team in Asheville, North Carolina, smack dab in the heart of SEC country.3. Atlanta Braves: With the focus on the immediate money, we put the Braves in the third position. Why? Its 100 miles between Gainesville, Florida, and Lake Buena Vista, where the Braves have spring training at the Disney complex. As far as the most diverse demographic for a player who draws the Good Morning America viewers, this is it. Keep in mind, spring training is pretty much the only time the team is guaranteed to make money from Tebow.4. San Diego Padres: The Padres are a dark horse here. This is solely based on their decision to draft Johnny Manziel in the 28th round of the 2014. After the Padres did it, they made custom Manziel jerseys and started selling them in their team store despite the fact that they werent allowed to because Manziel never signed. They eventually pulled the jerseys, but it showed that they were interested in the merchandising play. The Padres, like all teams, would make money that didnt have to be shared with the league from selling Tebow jerseys only if they sold them at Petco Park or at official team stores. But with the way things are going in San Diego, that move alone could pay for Tebow and add some much-needed excitement around the team.5. Tampa Bay Rays: After six consecutive winning seasons and a trip to the World Series, the Rays are now headed for their third straight losing campaign. Theres the Florida play, and theres no such thing as a distraction at this point. Adidas NMD R1 Nere .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court. Adidas NMD Offerte . Olli Jokinen, Mark Scheifele, and Bryan Little each had a goal and an assist as Winnipeg won 5-2, handing Calgary its record-setting seventh consecutive loss on home ice. . Tests earlier this week revealed a Grade 2 left hamstring strain for Sabathia, who was hurt in last Fridays start against San Francisco. Its an injury that will require about eight weeks to heal. He finished a disappointing campaign just 14-13 with a career-worst 4. SAN DIEGO -- Edwin Jackson processed the message, then put it into effect.Jackson struck out 11 in seven scoreless innings to outpitch former Padres ace Drew Pomeranz, leading San Diego over the Boston Red Sox 2-1 Monday.Jackson (4-5) gave up four hits and ended his three-start losing streak.We kind of talked in between starts and we felt he just wasnt finishing up front with a ton of conviction, Padres manager Andy Green said. From the first pitch today you can see him finishing aggressively.That made sense to Jackson.I had to come out today and force the issue against a great-hitting team, he said. They can put a lot of points on the board. You just have to have belief in what you do.Adam Rosales hit a two-run homer off Pomeranz.It helped seeing him as a teammate, Rosales said. I learned you have to lay off the curve and the cutter.Said Pomeranz: I was having trouble locating my pitches and he took advantage of one.Pomeranz (2-4 for Boston) was an All-Star for the Padres this season and 8-7 in the NL before being traded to the Red Sox in mid-July.I think Drew gave us what we kind of anticipated, (105) pitches and six quality innings of work, Red Sox manager John Farrell said.Brandon Maurer worked the ninth for his eighth save in 13 chances. He gave up a one-out single to Hanley Ramirez, then struck out Jackie Bradley Jr. and got pinch hitter David Ortiz on a flyball.Rosales hit his career-high ninth homer of the season in the fourth, and the San Diego pitchers made it stand up.One pitch, its a different game, Rosales said. But I didnt think it was goingg out. Adidas NMD Donna. Pomeranz gave up two runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out five with a walk.Chris Youngs pinch-hit homer off reliever Brad Hand to open the eighth cut the Padres lead to 2-1.Aaron Hill followed with a pinch-hit double but was stranded at third when Hand struck out Brock Holt and Xander Bogaerts.We got a couple of opportunities with really good hitters at the plate, Farrell said. But unfortunately we didnt execute to tie the game up.Hanley Ramirez had three hits for Boston.Bostons best chance against Jackson came in the seventh. But with two on and none out, he got Bradley to ground into a double play and fanned Yoan Moncada on a full-count offspeed pitch.(Catcher) Derek (Norris) and myself were able to get in a great groove, Jackson said. Today was one of those games.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: RHP Koji Uehara (strained pectoral muscle) was activated off the disabled list. He will be available on Tuesday, Farrell said.Padres: CF Jon Jay (right forearm) will be added to the roster on Tuesday after playing in three minor league games. Jay missed 66 games.UP NEXTRed Sox: RHP Clay Buchholz (5-10, 5.20) gets the nod for the middle game of the three-game series. In his last three starts, he is 1-0 and has allowed just one run in two of them.Padres: RHP Paul Clemens (2-4, 4.93) has set a career high with nine starts but his last one was rocky when he lasted by three innings, charged with two runs and four hits. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
