How does Mets’ Terry Collins feel about Tim Tebow?

Sunday afternoon, when Mets manager Terry Collins was asked about the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, he cleared his throat, drew a long pause, and delivered a succinct answer: “I got enough on my plate at the moment with what I got here,” Collins said.
