— Tim Tebow’s fledgling baseball career has hit a snag.

The former NFL quarterback and current outfielder in the Mets organization had a rare great day at the plate during an Arizona Fall League game on Monday, but it ended badly.

After Tebow got on base in the fourth inning of his 10th game with the Scottsdale Scorpions, he was not only caught stealing but was injured on his awkward slide into second.

Tebow came up lame after the slide with a knee injury that took him out of the game.

Before his injury, Tebow had a single in the first inning and reached base in the fourth on a fielder’s choice. He is 5-for-34 on the season with one RBI and two runs scored.

— Many Broncos cheerleaders got into the Halloween spirit for Denver’s game against the Chargers on Sunday. A few were princesses or superheroes, but one cheerleader went all in with her costume.

Romi Bean wore a full dinosaur costume for the Broncos’ 27-19 win over Chargers and still didn’t miss a step of the dance routines.

— Lakers forward Metta World Peace, formerly Ron Artest, pulled a strange Halloween prank during an interview with The Orange County Register on Sunday.

World Peace claimed ghosts touched him “in the wrong places” while he was staying at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in Oklahoma City, a famously haunted hotel.

“The ghosts were all over me. I just accepted it,” the Word Peace told the newspaper. “They touched me all over the place. I’m taking one of the ghosts to court for touching me in the wrong places.”

After the interview was published, World Peace admitted on Twitter the whole thing was a prank.

Many NBA players avoid staying at the hotel while in Oklahoma City because of reports it is haunted.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “It’s always tough to hear news like that with a teammate that I’ve played with and been in so many battles with. Jamie [was] a great player for our team and I’m sure he will be a great player for the Cleveland Browns. I am always sad when we lose a player that I like and someone that I respect like Jamie.” — Tom Brady, on the Patriots trading Jamie Collins to the Browns on Monday 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Coco Crisp (37), Masahiro Tanaka (28)

For fifteen years due do you think that you know they'd they would they'd he'd be better than be worse hop and same thing Bill Belichick and a guy like Andy Dalton.

Named Tim retains your every camera today. He played for the niners. Belichick loved timber today. And I remember I think I think Michael Holley wrote about this in his book. But outside of Tom Brady Bill Belichick that timber tea would have been the best cornerback for the patriots. They knew there really fit that system while it would bend he would arrive there invented a pro board. It's. So I don't know what Andy Dalton would have been I don't know it Mark Sanchez would have banner. You know. Aaron Rodgers. Andrew locker any you know it's very very difficult to say.

[0:05:01] ... or whatever it is a combination of factors eating get anything from Bill Belichick on the afternoon showed today I would have bet there's not a lot of things I'd bet my life on. I would have gladly. Bet my life. With some kind of weapon to a head ready to. Right then and there just take me out if I'm wrong that Bill Belichick would have sent some version of we did we thought was best for the football team when asked that first question might. So you're not gonna get the story they're from Bill Belichick but there's something more here it's not contract. It's not entirely football related guy he's not the same player but he can't ...
[0:07:34] ... Maybe try some different fronts we've seen on op patriot defense frankly. Bill Belichick sort of evolves throughout the course of the year it's a nice thing that you can do when you know you're gonna win a lot of games are probably when your division. You can treat the first part of the season almost like an extension of treaty can happen extinction of the pre season that might be part of the go forward as well. And yet I look back on Sar most of the time when Bill Belichick has made these kind of deals that everybody around the league and everybody around when we're going what is he thinking. They've worked out just fine. Going back to lawyer able. Wes Welker Logan Mankins and the wind that narrow reading of the WEEI dot com to this one it's gonna test. The Bill Belichick in bill we trust the eighty patriots way whatever you wanna taught philosophy was Darrelle Revis. I came off a fantastic year ...
[0:09:54] ... the biggest part of the story that question mark of why did Bill Belichick feel the need clearly. They James conscious can't be a patriot anymore. Whatever it takes whenever we got a we never we got it back. To get this guy off the roster it's got to happen today. Any can't even wait till the end of the year when he may just lock in free agency anyway. That's the biggest part of this story from a football perspective does that impact the patriots going forward. Well you're gonna have to see more Roberts who clearly Bill Belichick likes and I think with good reason for the first eight games the year. And the steam still gonna win the division still gonna be in a one overall seed my opinion still favored for Super Bowl. And don't forget. Even though Collins has made game changing plays those have work both ways you need to look no further than Owen Daniels and is an ability to cover him going back to the post season last year. This is not like losing high tower ...
