Mets make the right move, look ahead to 2015

Chris Young is not the future. Ruben Tejada is not either. So when the Mets made it clear that Tejada will not be starting anymore on Friday afternoon and DFA’d Young on Friday night, they told they’re fans what they’ve wanted to hear all along: “we’ve had enough too, and we’re moving on”. For now, Wilmer Flores is the starting shortstop and Matt den Dekker is the...

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 is doing his job just fine

The Mets kickoff their final series before the All-Star break with a three game set against Miami.  This current home stand has been encouraging in all aspects specifically this past series when the team took three of four from the rival Atlanta Braves.  The lineup has picked up its run production too with the help of a resurgent Travis d’Arnaud and a red hot Curtis Granderson...

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...
