The Cubs won their 101st game last night. Last time they won MORE than 100 games? How about 1910. William Howard Taft was president!

Outside Marlins Park and @mets manager Terry Collins was jogging by. I had just heard Tim Tebow hit a home run in his first at-bat and stopped Collins to tell him. His eyes lit up and he said, "That is great news. Hey, you never know."

Just like his days at the University of Florida, Tim Tebow is still beating up on Vanderbilt athletes. This moment was storybook, too. On the first pitch of his first organized game since his junior year of high school, Tebow sent a 91 mph fastball over the left-center wall for a home run. After circling the bases, Tebow was greeted at the plate by his teammates, who had poured out of the dugout. Tebow had quietly taken those teenagers out to dinner Monday and to a movie on Tuesday after intrasquad games. The crowd, announced by the Mets at 269 for the instructional league game, also erupted as Tebow connected and circled the bases. The long ball came off 6-foot-5 left-hander John Kilichowski, who was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 11th round out of Vanderbilt University in June.
