Let's not minimize the decision to play Ruben Tejada every day at third base.
Then again, let's not maximize it either.
Everybody but their left uncle has had his chance to play this position this season while David Wright decides if he's going to come back and play with a pain in his lower back.
Tejada, who is about as popular to Terry Collins as 'Reek' is to Ramsey Snow, looks to be getting his final chance to impress the powers to be of the now second Mets brass.
No, Collins won't actually cut Tejada's dick off like Snow did to Theon Greyjoy (a.k.a.'Reek')... oh, you don't follow the show and never seen that scene... sorry.
No, he's going to play third base and I expect he will play it pretty damn good because this is the first time his manager sat him down and had the balls to tell him to his face that he always didn't have the confidence in both his attitude and ability. You tell someone those two things and well, you might as well just cut my cock off!
Is this working? Well, the team is 4-2 against opponents that have the talent of a Policeman's Benevolent League in Queens. Tejada is actually getting the lion share of 6-7 hits this miserable offense comes up with every day.
Can you answer me a question?
Just how in the flying hell can a team play so bad and still work there way to being a half game out of first place?
Are we sure we're not in the AL East?
