RUBEN TEJADA RUMORS & GOSSIP

MLB reportedly close to rule preventing collisions at second base

The moment Chase Utley took out Ruben Tejada with a hard slide into second base during the Dodgers and Mets’ NLDS series, you had to know baseball would take a long look at rules governing such slides. According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, MLB and the players union are making substantial progress in reforming the rules regarding takeout slides. In the ongoing talks between the...

Mets Might Not Tender A Contract To Tejada

Mike Puma of the NY Post reports that it’s not a slam dunk that  Ruben Tejada will be tendered a contract this offseason. According to Puma, the Mets could turn to Matt Reynolds instead who will compete with Wilmer Flores for the starting job. Assistant general manager John Ricco recently stated that the Mets were comfortable with having Tejada and Flores at shortstop, but the...

Baseball is not a contact sport

That’s it. That’s the whole thing. There are contact sports out there. A whole lot of contact sports. Baseball is not and never has been among them. Sometimes, players do come into contact with one another. Sometimes, they do so violently, and sometimes, when they do so violently, they’re even on opposing teams. It’s not that the players are forbidden to touch, and it...

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...
