RUBEN TEJADA RUMORS & GOSSIP

If Tejada Isn’t In Mets’ Plans, Then Release Him Now

The signs of what the Mets really think about Ruben Tejada couldn’t be any more clearer if they were in neon. With Daniel Murphy a likely DL candidate to open the season, GM Sandy Alderson said Danny Muno – who went 2-for-4 in Saturday’s 6-4 loss to Detroit – and Matt Reynolds, who is scheduled to start Sunday against the Yankees, are contenders to start the season at second...

Can Wilmer Flores Outhit His Defense?

The experts say the Mets are lacking at shortstop, have been since Jose Reyes took his talents to South Florida after 2011. Considering that Reyes had just won the Mets’ first batting title in 50 seasons of baseball and that his initial replacement was Ruben Tejada, the experts have not been wrong. Tejada put up some promising numbers in extremely small sample sizes during 2010...

Further Proof Tejada Doesn’t Get It

My guess is this will be Ruben Tejada’s last season with the Mets. That is, if he lasts that long. Manager Terry Collins has called into question Tejada’s work ethic in the past, and now players are doing so. Former teammate Jose Reyes, whose own attitude has been doubted, said Tejada failed in his opportunity to seize the Mets’ shortstop job. Once off-season workout buddies...

There may still be hope for Ruben Tejada

Ex-Met shortstop Jose Reyes made a small bit of news this week when he was critical of Ruben Tejada‘s inability to lock down the starting shortstop job. Specifically, Reyes insinuated that perhaps Tejada simply had not put in the required work to hold it down long-term. This is mostly of note because Reyes isn’t very critical of anybody publicly. It also wasn’t that long...

Jose Reyes Calls Out Ruben Tejada For Not Doing Enough To Earn Shortstop Job

Former Mets shortstop Jose Reyes had some harsh words for Ruben Tejada for failing to grab hold of the starting shortstop job with the Mets. In an interview with reporter Anthony Reiber of Newsday, Reyes expressed disappointment in Tejada believing his former teammate didn’t do enough to win the job and keep it. “He had the opportunity to be the everyday shortstop for a long...

Ruben Tejada is free of expectations, but what is his value?

For the first time since Jose Reyes’ departure in 2011, Ruben Tejada will head to Spring Training free of high expectations. Tejada is no stranger to scrutiny; it oddly began three years ago when he arrived on-time for baseball activities. However, after an abysmal 2013, the Mets’ back-up middle infielder is a bargain at his $1.88 million salary – and could be the best back...

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...

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...
