Jose Canseco offers Tim Tebow free batting lessons

New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow got his first hit of the spring on Monday. But before that happened, Jose Canseco noticed a flaw in his swing.

Canseco observed on Twitter that Tebow’s swing has “no rhythm.” That’s the bad news. The good news is that Canseco wants to help. He’s even offered Tebow his services for free.

This would be quite the meeting. It’s hard to imagine two athletes whose reputations are more different than Canseco and Tebow.

In all seriousness, if the earth didn’t spontaneously combust at the idea of these two in the same place, Tebow could do a lot worse. Canseco is a former American League MVP, Rookie of the Year winner, made six All-Star Games, twice led MLB in home runs, and finished his career with 462 homers. There’s definitely some knowledge there.

We do have one request. All sessions between these two must be recorded and televised.
