Yes, I am aware that this should be a Fanshot, but after seeing people repeatedly talk about Ruben Tejada being late to pre-season training, and in bad shape, and being the John Candy of shortstops (both fat and dead, RIP John), I figured that this should be close to the top of the list so folks can see it. Here are the results of a Google search for "Ruben Tejada Michigan."
Listen guys (and ladies), I'm in a really remote part of Africa and this stuff is in the New York Post and on Metsblog: why does it seem that I'm more aware of it than many? I'm not a huge fan of Tejada due to things like fWAR, rWAR, the Korean War, wRC+, OPS, OPS+, WWE, and YOLO, but as it seems increasingly likely that he will be our starting shortstop I figure that we have to give the kid a break on being out of shape because, for a time now, he has been working out in a place so cold he probably loses weight just keeping his body temperature at 98.6.
I should note that Ruben has eaten none of this pie.
