DateQuestionAnswer
2016-03-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the impact of Peralta's injury on Kolten Wong's value? There was talk this spring that Wong was headed to a platoon with Jedd Gyorko, but maybe Gyotko will be needed more at SS now with Peralta out. Thoughts?
(Truganini from Co)
I don't know why you'd take at-bats away from Wong--who's better both offensively and defensively--and give them to Gyorko. Maybe Gyorko spells Wong specifically against lefties or something.
And I'm in no hurry to see Gyorko play shortstop either. I think Ruben Tejada was a very savvy pickup and can at least be better than replacement-level, which might not literally be Pete Kozma anymore, but still feels like Pete Kozma. (Michael Baumann)
2016-03-14 14:30:00 (link to chat)So Cards definitely need an upgrade at SS now. I saw the Ahmed talks and definitely like him. One guy, though, who has always intrigued me is Ruben Tejada. He seems like one of those guys who would just be much better on the Cardinals. What would it take to get him? Is it possible the Mets could trade Tejada and a prospect for a better prospect from the Cards? Thanks!
(Georgie from St Louis)
If only Desmond had stayed on the market for another couple of weeks. As for Tejada, I don't think I'd want to court a guy coming off of a broken leg to be my insurance policy. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)WHY OH WHY Wont the Mets actually give Wilmer Flores a shot, does Sandy Alderson need to take Ruben Tejada away from Terry Collins?
(Steve from Winnipeg)
I don't know, Steve. Ive been saying since this past winter that they needed to give Flores at-bats, even if it meant having to watch him butcher things at SS. Who cares? It's not going to be a competitive season anyway. Let's see just how well the kid can hit. But instead we're getting more confirmation that he can rake in Vegas. Big whoop. I don't get it. He needs to play regularly in the majors and I don't care at what position. The Mets are going to go into next year still not knowing what kind of bat he is at the major league level, and that's a travesty. (Jeff Moore)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)I love to collect scrappy, young MI not named Jose Altuve. Which of my collection has the most upside: Jose Ramirez, Alexi Amarista, Ruben Tejada, Leury Garcia
(tbwhite from San Diego)
Do I have to? (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben, thanks for the chat. supposedly flores got in shape to the point where the mets may use him at short. i guess he played ss on tues. what do you think the odds are he could become the starter by years end?
(hdub from the bleachers)
Someone asked about Flores at short in Jason Parks' most recent chat, and Jason said:

"He won't be a good shortstop. He doesn't have the range to excel there at the highest level. I guess the kind way of putting it is that Flores isn't an ideal shortstop, physically speaking. He has really nice hands and a strong arm, but the range is just what you want at the position. I think he could be a very good 3B, but obviously that's not going to happen with the Mets. Underrated player, though. He doesn't get enough credit for being able to hit. He's a natural hitter that keeps getting stronger."

Of course, Flores' competition in the short term is Ruben Tejada, so sure, it could happen. (Ben Lindbergh)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Need a shortstop in NL-only deep dynasty league, traditional 5x5, and options are running slim: Gregorious, Furcal, Hechavarria, Dee Gordon, Ruben Tejada, Freddy Galvis, Haveabananarama. Not a rebuilding team, should compete this year, but did not keep Gregorious.
(Greg from KC)
Gordon is the guy I'd take a flier on at the moment. OBP risk and could flame out again but he has the upside. Furcal and Gregorius are the next two players on my list but - as you point out - this is a deep NL-only so the options are unsurprisingly uninspiring. (Mike Gianella)
2013-07-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of the Altuve extension? Seems like it's going to be tough for him to walk through fields with those little paws.
(Kevin from St. Louis)
He's the same age as Ruben Tejada, he's done almost exactly as much, and it's almost impossible to see him playing any role besides second base. Tejada at least could be a utility infielder or a second baseman, besides playing short. Nobody's clamoring for a Tejada extension. I like Altuve enough, and it's hard for a team to really lose these extensions, and R.J. pointed out in his TA that it's a valuable signal for the Astros to be putting out. But seems like there's some degree of The Internet Likes Him Because He Quirky in the reaction. (Sam Miller)
2013-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)I've got five shortstops born over the course of six months, September 1989-March 1990. Take contract status out, but considering all else, how do you rank them for the short and the long term? Andrelton Simmons, Ruben Tejada, Didi Gregorius, Jean Segura, Starlin Castro.
(Matt Trueblood from Fridley, MN)
Short: Castro, Segura, Gregorius, Simmons, Tejada
Long: Castro, Segura, Simmons, Gregorius, Tejada (Sam Miller)
2012-01-20 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think the Mets will call up Matt Harvey this season and give him another full year in the minors? Also, how do you think Ruben Tejada will do in place of Reyes?
(Scot from Washington, DC )
Harvey will spend most, if not all of the year in the minors. September callup at best, as he's not ready. I actually like Tejada as a solid performer. He's not a star, but there are plenty of shortstops I'd take Tejada over. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-12-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)What would you estimate for the number of times out of 100 the threesome of Dee Gordon, Jemile Weeks, and Jose Altuve has more productive careers than the threesome of Ruben Tejada, Johnny Giavotella, and Kyle Seager?
(goiter6 from MN)
98. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you were Sandy Alderson's right hand man, and Reyes has already signed elsewhere, what would you advise as a course of action?
(Matt from Whippleville, NY )
Abject surrender, like the rebels at Appomattox. They can stick Ruben Tejada in there, but there isn't a handy way to replace the offense or the electricity that player provides. (Steven Goldman)
2011-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jason Heyward, Mike Stanton and Starlin Castro all played last year at age 20. Has there ever been a year when that many 20-year-olds did as well in the majors as those three? Of the players who've done that in the past, have most ended up in Cooperstown?
(Rex Little from Big Bear, CA)
Restricting our inquiry to hitters who had at least 200 PAs, last year had four: the ones you mention plus Ruben Tejada. Years with four 20 year-old hitters aren't so rare (e.g. 1976, 1970), but the only year in recent memory with MORE 20 year-old hitters is 1964. That year, Ed Kranepool, Rusty Staub, Tony Conigliaro, Derrell Griffith, Ed Kirkpatrick, and Terry Jones all played their age-20 seasons. As best I can tell, that (6) is the record. (Tommy Bennett)
2011-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)20 team strato keeper league - who would rather have, Ruben Tejada or Jake Fox?
(goiter6 from MN)
I wouldn't be too excited about either of those guys, but I guess I'd take Tejada for position and upside. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ruben Tejada: still just a utility guy or does he have a chance to be a regular with J Wilson type career?
(Rave from Mahwah, NJ)
Well, he's not the glove wiz Wilson is. I could see him having some years as a second-division starter certainly. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)The Mets starting 2B on Opening Day 2010 will be ...? In 2011????
(dianagramr from NYC)
Luis Castillo. Ruben Tejada. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-08-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)When do you see Ruben Tejada making an impact in the majors and what kind of impact do you see him making?
(Carl from Buffalo, NY)
Ruben Tejada is going to be a big leaguer, but not an impact one. For me, he's kind of a future Enrique Wilson kind of player. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Am I wrong to love Ruben Tejada? 19 years old in AA ball, hitting for average and demonstrating great plate discipline?
(Thomas from NY)
Is love really ever wrong? Love is a good thing, the world needs more love. In all seriousness though, I like Tejada for all the reasons you do, but I'm not convinced his more than a good utility guy in the end. (Kevin Goldstein)
