Wow, Tebow (and Cespedes'
) agent must have really called in a favor with the early signing:

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. ? Tim Tebow's baseball career is apparently far from over.
Tebow's 19-game stint in the Arizona Fall League resulted in mixed reviews from major league scouts and officials, but New York Mets manager Terry Collins spoke highly of Tebow and was adamant he come to major league camp.
?I certainly hope we?ll see Tim Tebow in some of our games," Collins said Tuesday at baseball's annual Winter Meetings. ?If he?s not in our camp, I?ll get him over."
Collins went to watch Tebow play in Arizona, but did not meet with the former Heisman Trophy winner. Tebow had his moments in the AFL, but struggled against some of the young, top pitching prospects. It took him 13 at-bats before registering his first hit.
