Because he's being to demoted to the minor leagues.

Let's reflect on Vance's time here by remembering how cool he was and that strut he had for instances like this one, when he made hamburger meat out of the Giants lineup.

THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE, OR REALLY EVEN SCIENCE

Replay in baseball, though sorely needed, is rarely used. The stipulations for firing up the time-consuming, resource-devouring industrial instant replay machine are quite clear.

THE EXPENDABLES, TOO

Tim Tebow doesn't have a home right now, and because of that Tim Tebow is out there somewhere right now, performing clutch plays like helping people with car trouble or nursing wounded animals back to health, and then horrifying them with stories about how bad of a quarterback he is.

But there's one guy out there who thinks Tim Tebow is just the tops. And that guy is martial arts expert Chuck Norris.
