Wieters aims to make best of his (likely) final two years as an Oriole

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters may carry the tools of ignorance. But when it comes to this negotiating game, he is no dope. No one can make a contractual stalemate sound nicer than him. When Wieters says he "thinks both parties are on the same page," what he doesn't mention is that that means that while the parties understand where each other stands, they also both...

Matt Wieters Is Good At Baseball

The other day on the radio, I heard some argument as to whether or not the Orioles should sign Matt Wieters to a $10 M a year contract. The part that got me was that even the people in favor seemed to assume that Wieters would take such a deal. When I expressed that idea, I received a fair bit of push-back - it seems like people don't think that Wieters is actually that good...

Matt Wieters is a cyborg

For the second time this week, Matt Wieters was involved in a collision at the plate, and for the second time, Wieters came out on top. Unlike in Boston on Sunday though, Tampa infielder Sean Rodriguez really tried to bring the lumber, throwing a forearm shiver to Wieters’ facemask. If Wieters had dropped the ball Sunday, the Red Sox would have won the game on the play. If he...

The Crystal Ball 2012: Matt Wieters

Matt Wieters is finally starting to fulfill the massive promise he showed in the minors.His bat finally started to come around and he flashed some of that power we expected to see from Day 1. He smacked 22 homers, and easily set career highs in slugging percentage and ISO. I don't think anyone believed that Wieters would be such a good defensive catcher but he delivered Gold...
