The Wieters era in Baltimore has officially begun. Matt Wieters got off to a slow start, in which many questions were asked about his talent, but they have now taken those words back as Wieters is (22-66) .333 in his last 18 games. On the year he is hitting .277 with 3 HR and 9 RBI. In Wieters last game, he went 3-3, solo HR, 2 runs, walk.
Matt Wieters will be the face of the O’s franchise in years to come, whether next year or in five Wieters has made a name for himself. The “switch hitting version of Joe Mauer” as he is called busted out of the gates and only saw 39 games in Triple-A Norfolk before being called up to the big leagues.
Matt Wieters, now a local celeb, has his own website called MattWietersFacts.com. I recently stumbled upon it and I just couldn’t stop laughing at all of the hilarious slogans they had. Wieters is currently sharing time with catcher Gregg Zaun, but with the way Wieters has turned it on, It looks like the O’s will be gone with Zaun.
Just thinking about how good this kid is makes me just wonder what the O’s will be like in the future with Bergesen, Jones, and Wieters. Wow, that would be a powerful team right there! Matt Wieters has brought alot of hype to the city of Baltimore and is starting to back it up.
