There was a brief time in 2012, as Mets fans tried to recover from the loss of Jose Reyes, that Ruben Tejada seemed to have promise. With his recent struggles, and never-ending love/hate relationship projected upon him by Mets management, it is hard to remember those days. It makes me wonder: Where did Ruben Tejada […]
