Twitter is such an interesting place to spark ideas and have conversation. I was talking to Rob_Sports over there tonight when they mentioned an interesting scenario for when Luis Castillo returns.

@TylerFlushingBB I’d like to see Tejada get a chance to start full time with Castillo there to take over if he struggles.

Could Ruben Tejada fill the starter role when Castillo returns? I personally would love for him to take over the starter role everyday. I have not been a fan of Castillo but still, Tejada has done pretty well. He can also spell Jose Reyes once in a while.

What do you all think? What is your opinion on the second base question? Post comments, let me know what you think!
