Tejada Continues To Produce, Has Three-Hit Night

Ruben Tejada continued to swing a hot bat on Monday night, going 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored. He is now 8-for-17 with four RBI over his last four games since starting at third base. After the game manager Terry Collins told reporters that he doesn’t want Tejada to view this as a last chance to prove he’s an everyday player. (New York Post) “I don’t think it’s...

(AP Photo/Seth Wenig) With David Wright’s return to the Mets still far away, the team has been left scrounging for options that would provide production at third base. After spending much of the season searching, an answer...

Tejada Seizes The Moment, Earns Third Base Job

Nobody knows how long David Wright is going to remain out with his spinal stenosis, but as of right now utility infielder Ruben Tejada has seized the moment prompting Terry Collins to proclaim him the Mets third baseman. Tejada was the difference in Sunday’s 4-3 win against the Marlins when he launched an RBI double late in the game to break the 3-3 deadlock. It capped of a productive...

Ruben Tejada Producing At Third Base

After another Mets loss to the division rival Miami Marlins on Saturday (9-5), one of the few bright spots in that game was Ruben Tejada. He started at third base and went 2-for-4 including a bases clearing double that drove in three runs to tie the game at 5-5 in the 4th inning. “With men in scoring position, I go aggressive every time,” Tejada said. “Sometimes you only...

The 2015 shortstop free agent market benefits Ruben Tejada

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but there is a good possibility that Ruben Tejada will be the Mets shortstop in 2015. There is a huge caveat with that statement, and that is the assumption that Wilmer Flores fails to take the position via his superior offensive capabilities, or Matt Reynolds down in Triple-A does not impress. Both could make a strong case either during the...

Ruben Tejada: Maybe We Were All Wrong?

Don’t look now because I’m afraid we might jinx it, but what the hell, here comes Ruben Tejada. Yes that Ruben Tejada. The same kid who had been much maligned and dragged through the mud by even his own manager and general manager for most of 2013. The same kid who has been painted as a fat, lazy, good-for-nothing who was washed up at the tender age of 23. That same kid is now...

It’s time to part ways with Ruben Tejada

Over the past several months, it has been rumored that Ruben Tejada’s time with the Mets was limited, either by impending demotion or release. From his lackluster play for the entire 2013 season, to calls for his ouster this winter, to Wilmer Flores’ recent promotion, it seems like Tejada has had one foot out the door for quite some time. It might be time to close that door...

New York Mets: Solving the Ruben Tejada Problem

Ruben Tejada has struggled to regain his 2012 form Ask any New York Mets fan what the biggest issues are with the team and there is a good likelihood they will say the shortstop. Following the departure of Jose Reyes, Ruben Tejada was pegged as “the guy” to replace him. The fact that the team didn’t even make an offer to Reyes shows the confidence they had in Tejada. In his...

Has Ruben Tejada Been Unlucky in 2014?

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada has been the subject of abject criticism in recent months for his underwhelming performance. The 24-year-old Panamanian is off to a slow start both offensively and defensively, but there may be reason to believe his offensive production has been the result of bad luck. Tejada entered Sunday’s finale against the Atlanta Braves hitting a meager .184...

What’s wrong with Travis d’Arnaud?

Because of Ruben Tejada’s complete ineptitude this spring, one vital piece of the New York Mets’ future has flown under the radar: Travis d’Arnaud. Maybe it’s because he at least sort of looked like he knew how to play baseball last year. Nevertheless, Travis d’Arnaud is having just as bad a spring as Tejada. I understand that it’s only spring training, and it would be...
