Let's Win this Series for Ruben Tejada

I stayed up last night until 12:30 to watch the Mets play the Dodgers in game 2 of the NLDS.  There was a controvesial play in the 7th inning when Chase Utley aggressively slide into Ruben Tejada causing a fracture to his leg.  The umpires ruled Utley safe and the Dodgers scored 4 runs in that inning and won the game to tie the series a 1-1.

Joe Torre will rule on whether Utly should be suspended.  It did appear that his slide was overly aggresive.  The best "revenge" for the Mets is to beat the Dodgers in games 3 and 4 and dedicate the victory to Ruben Tejada who was a pleasant surprise this season.  There was talk at the beginning of the season of trading for another shortstop but Ruben did very well in the field and at bat.

I'll be at Citfield on Monday night for game 3.
