When the double switch was made and Tejada came in the game, why did he play 2nd base, when all spring we heard he was the best defensive SS in camp? He obviously has more range than Cora at SS, and Cora has more experience playing 2B than SS. It didn't have an impact on the end result of the game, but these little details can add up and cost a team a couple games throughout the year...
And here is the quote I love from Joe's article:
Maybe I’m making a mountain out of a mole hill … but, these “little” things have been piling up for years, and when you add them all up, you have to believe they’ve had something to do with the Mets’ failure to make the postseason three years running.
I agree 100%, and it's a well thought out post, as well as a great overall blog. Make sure you check it out. http://www.metstoday.com/
