Over parts of three minor league seasons with the New York Mets, Tim Tebow has hit just.244 with 14 homers and a.686 OPS.

The team had been on an unofficial search for a general manager for a while ever since Sandy Alderson announced he'd be stepping away from the job, but finally found their man in former agent Brodie Van Wagenen.

This could be the flawless opportunity for Amaro Jr.to resurrect his career.

It's expected the Mets will seek a veteran with National League experience for the bench coach role.

Brodie Van Wagenen's first official act as the New York Mets' new General Manager was to make some changes to the coaching staff.

According to Metsblog.com, following last week's introductory press conference, Van Wagenen told Mike Francesa of WFAN that the club was in the process of evaluating their coaching staff.

The Mets made a decision to go with an outside the box hire at General Manager.

I am a fan of the shakeup as I believe that success is built from the bottom up.

Pat Roessler was the club's assistant hitting coach from 2015-2017, before replacing Kevin Long as hitting coach in 2018.

Van Wagenen went so far as to say that there's a chance that Tim Tebow could be on the Mets' Opening Day roster.

Now, the lack of production is not all Roessler's fault.

Tim Tebow #15 (New York Mets) of the Scottsdale Scorpions warms up in the dugout during the Arizona Fall League game against the Peoria Javelinas at Peoria Stadium on October 13, 2016 in Peoria, Arizona. Does this mean that launch angle will be coming to Queens with their new hitting coach? Bones had been bullpen coach since the 2012 season.

Essentially most Mets of importance are working with CAA.
