Wieters era has begun!















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.

Matt Wieters has reached base safely in 17 of his last 19 games and has caught a blaze. The kid has been starting to live up to his potential and is getting more and more starts. If he continues to do this, the Wieters Era will be starting towards Cooperstown      
















That is it until next time on the Birdland Blog. Please check out mattwietersfacts.com. It is really hilarious. Thanks again! 🙂 comment all you would like.

    I’m really pumped about this kid. It is pretty hard to find catchers these days to come up through the systems. But Wieters is a different story. The O’s are extremely lucky to have this kid for a while.

    Wieters looks like he is going to continue the trend Joe Mauer and Brian McCann started again. Hopefully with more guys like these the position will be considered an offensive position as well as defensive.

    Jordan actually interviewed one of the Matt Wieters Facts guys!

    Very nice guy.

    While I am not giving up the faith, I was pretty high on Geovany Soto coming into this season. And…blah. I am sure that he will tune it up next season, but that sophmore slump is a killer. Hopefully Wieters will finish strong this year and do just as well next year.

  8. raysfanboy

    Wieters is the real deal. I knew that when I saw him get his first hit–a triple! What catcher gets a triple for his first hit!? That’s something special right there!

    Soto will come back and do some damage. But it is really hurting the Cubs right now to have him hitting so poorly.

    Speaking of poor hitting catchers, the Rays have one of their own right now. I’m wondering if they are considering any moves at the catcher position? It is definitely their weakest spot on the diamond.
