Ruben Tejada was on a roll the first five weeks of the season, with a .305/.362/.400 line before he went down with an injury. There was some concern that he would not be the force he was early in the year when he finally made it back on the active roster, but Tejada has put those fears to rest by picking up right where he left off. In eight games since being activated, Tejada has an .807 OPS.
In case you didn’t see it – because if you saw it you wouldn’t forget it – Tejada was running down to first base and did a face plant into the ground. At first it seemed that he left the game because of a head injury, as he landed on his chin/jaw. But it turned out to be a strained quad that landed him on the disabled list. Tejada ended up missing 44 games.
Shortstop became a revolving door for the Mets with Tejada on the DL. The team used five different players in his absence, including David Wright for a few innings. Backups Ronny Cedeno and Justin Turner both landed on the DL after Tejad...
BEST OF MAXIM
Today the 2012 All Stars were announced, and Mets 3rd baseman David Wright was absolutely screwed. Wright who is second in the NL in batting with a .354 average (as of this posting), second in doubles, third in hits, and seventh in fielding.
Wright has had a story book first half, easily a first half MVP candidate, but to be snubbed by the fans as an All Star starter is obscene.
The Mets 3rd
During the New York Mets 11-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies, 22-year-old shortstop, Ruben Tejada, collected three hits in five at-bats, while scoring two runs and driving in one:
In the bottom half of the fourth inning, Tejada collected his second hit of the night — a two-out RBI single to center — extending the Mets lead 5-1. After advancing to second on the throw...
Brandon Nimmo Getting Into The Swing
I asked Brandon Nimmo if he had a few minutes to spare at some point before the game against the Hudson Valley Renegades on Sunday. He said, “when?” I said, “you tell me, anytime your available.” He turned around and caught the eye of his hitting coach Bobby Malek who simply nodded, and Nimmo turned back to me and said, “I have time...

I never blogged about how ridiculous it is that David Wright didn’t get the starting gig for the All-Star Game. Let’s just say I’m extremely mad. I agree with what everyone is saying… The game is supposed to mean something. Home field advantage for the league that wins for the World Series—-that means something. The best players in the league should start, not the player...
The struggles continued tonight for Phillies starting pitching and the team in general. It's getting more and more frustrating to say the least, and it hasn't been a fun ride over the past week with the Phillies losing more and more games.
I know I typically write out a game story, but this would have been the worst of the season, so instead of that, here are the scoring...

The Mets thumped Philadelphia 11-1 on Tuesday, racking up 15 hits in a rout that sent the Phillies to their sixth straight loss in...
