Hits & Misses: Beltran To The Phillies? Tulo and CarGo Are Going Nowhere?

In 600 plate appearances for the Cardinals in 2013, […]

Will The Mets Consider A Reunion With Jose Reyes?

D. Stankiewicz  asks… With all this talk that adding a shortstop will be one of our main offseason goals, I hear and read a lot about Stephen Drew and Troy Tulowitzki, but never a word about bringing back the best shortstop this team ever had, Jose Reyes. Is there any chance that we could work […]

Could We Have Been Wrong About Terry Collins?

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News wrote a column endorsing the Mets decision to resign Terry Collins to a two-year deal in a column he wrote in today’s edition. His piece doesn’t spend much time addressing the Mets won/loss record. I assume, like many, that he doubts that with the Mets’ rosters Terry […]

Ruben Tejada will start at shortstop on Wednesday night against the Nationals, according to Terry Collins, and will get the bulk of the starts at short the rest of the season. “Everybody’s allowed to have a bad year.

Alderson Frustrated With Tejada, Says He Doesn’t Show A Commitment To Improving

In his interview with Mike Francesa on WFAN, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said some things about Ruben Tejada that were very unflattering and I would say he basically called him lazy, aloof and unmotivated although not in so many words. “One of the problems with Ruben is it’s like pulling teeth,” Alderson said to describe […]
