Ruben Tejada and other non-tender candidates

The early decisions in any offseason surround the status of a team’s 40 man roster. The 40 man roster is The Great Wall of a professional baseball team. It’s what allows an organization to protect its players so that they can be allowed to develop into a team that should be able to contend. 40 man rosters though, are constantly in flux, due to injuries, minor league promotions...

What Does The Future Hold For Ruben Tejada?

As we start to turn our gaze towards 2015, we have to start to figure out which players will impact the team going forward. Ruben Tejada is one guy with a large question mark hanging over his head. At the start of 2014, he was once again granted the keys to shortstop. There was no competition and he was never challenged. Once again, he failed to earn the position he was given. He...

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...

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...

Could Be Time For Mets To Cut Tejada Loose

A team will often speak to a player through the media, which the New York Mets appear to be doing with the potentially talented, but often moody and sullen shortstop Ruben Tejada. Appearing on WFAN, Alderson said it was “like pulling teeth’’ to get him to do extra work, which is absurd. I, for one, will simply yawn when the Mets decide they’ve had enough of Tejada’s sorry...
