Fledgling OF Tim Tebow, in a press conference before his first spring-training workout with the Mets, was asked if he got a fair shake with the Jets in 2012. He laughed. "Where did that come from? Been holding onto that one for three years?" he asked. He went on to say, "That's not for me to decide at all. The one thing with the Jets situation was I learned so much from it. I'm grateful for the highs there, which weren't really many. Not necessarily the most fun situation. I think that everything happens for a reason. I learned so much from it."
