Baltimore Sun: O’s Wieters humble about the hype

For a lad that just translated La Vuelta de Martín Fierro into regional Kiswahili and found time to exactacopy every swollen Ritzy Bryan lick off “A Balloon Called Moaning”...humble indeed.

“You can take the best player to ever play the game and you couldn’t have expected him to come out of the chute this well,” Orioles minor league director David Stockstill said. “No matter how much we expected out of Matt Wieters, he surpassed everything.”

Wieters quickly dismissed the accolades when asked about them.

“It was great to have a good year last year, but that’s over,” he said. “I set my goals and expectations pretty high, and last year was one of the first years I’ve come close to reaching them. I have to bump up the goals a little bit higher this year.”

Despite trading starting catcher Ramon Hernandez in December and watching Wieters bat .440 so far this spring, Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said Wieters will likely start the season at Triple-A Norfolk.

“This is a player that has had only one full year of experience and a little bit over 200 at-bats in Double-A,” said MacPhail, who signed Gregg Zaun to bridge the gap for Wieters.

By "the best player to ever play the game", Stockstill means Wieters, right?

Have you guys seen Wieters' PECOTA projection? It would make his mother blush.

But then, replace 'Catholic Church' with 'Jewish Synagogues' and you have the same thing that happened to Jesus.

There used to be a regular parade of letters to like the Sporting News (not to mention columns in the like the Sporting News) which would regularly decry how many players were being "rushed" to the majors. You don't see that much anymore because the argument has been taken away by cautious/pragmatic* GMs who make just about every prospect now play at least half-a-season at every single level, even if doing so is pointless and even possibly counterproductive. Wieters needs to learn how to handle major-league pitching, and the sooner he does that the better.

*One rationale I've seen for putting the breaks on a hot prospect is to ensure that he plays a goodly portion of his prime years in his pre-arb seasons. If Player A is rushed up at age 21, and plays somewhere between replacement/average as a rookie, well most teams would rather have him wait in AAA and be a rookie the next year at around an average/somewhat above average level, thus getting an extra prime season (hopefully significantly above average) several years down the line, for cheap. My take is that a young (less than 23) prospect will show an increased growth profile if he is put in the majors just as soon as he can play above replacement. So if you rush him a bit he may be at say 160 OPS+ by his prime, rather than 140 if he is held back. But I know of no study which has examined this (hint hint lurking BBPro/THT types).

i initially read this as "seeing Wieters' name makes blind men see." which i was ready to agree with in a very real sense.

after noticing the difference, i still agree with it, of course.

I mean, imagine the nerve of someone to compare Alex Gordon and Ben Grieve to the greatest ballplayer of our generation.

Wieters game calling ability is so advanced he can make the Orioles staff overcome the rest of the AL East. </most ridiculous claim yet>
   20. Willie Mayspedester Posted: March 14, 2009 at 07:57 PM (#3103206)
If the Orioles got Joe Beimel and brought up Wieters right away they would be runaway favorites for the AL pennant.

When a pitcher plunks Matt Wieters, the ball is awarded first base for enduring the pain.

Seriously though, Zips projects Wieters for .291 .361 .467 which is very solid for a catcher but nothing unseen before. The way you guys talk about him, it's like he's Ted Williams as a gold glove catcher.

The Orioles asked Lloyds of London to insure Wieters, Lloyds agreed to write the policy, unfortunately only Bernard Madoff could afford the premiums. Out of the blue, he agreed to pay.

What Ted Williams didn't realize when he asked to be frozen was that when he is revived he'll have to look at Matt Wieters' stats and say "There goes the best hitter that ever lived." He probably would've asked for cremation if he had considered that.

Matt Wieters taught Sparky Lyle how to throw a slider, Hoyt Wilhelm how to grip a screwball, and revived Charlie Hough's minor league career by showing him a pitch he had invented just moments prior called the knuckleball. All "knuckleballs" thrown prior to that moment were actually figments of collective imagination. While filling in the gaps in the space/time continuum by creating false memories of 1940s knuckleballs, Wieters accidentally revealed the curveball to Candy Cummings in a dream. And from that moment on, the Law of Unintended Consequences became The Law of Whatever the Hell Matt Wieters Says Will ############# Happen.

Honestly, with all this BTF hype I'm beginning to agree with Tripon: the best possible outcome would be for him to fail miserably.

Because Stephen Strasburg? THERE's your godlike can't-miss prospect right now. And he's gonna play for the NATIONALS.

Ford Prefect "read of one planet off in the seventh dimension that got used as a ball in a game of intergalactic bar billiards." He should just be glad he's never had to witness a Wieters family Wiffleball game. The last one decimated 30 galaxies worth of planets. Matt fouled off 13 consecutive pitches at one point, not because he really hated that solar system, just to get a better pitch to hit.
   44. Tuque Posted: March 14, 2009 at 11:43 PM (#3103295)

After two months of starting, Matt Wieters will be 1 for 5. With three hundred walks.



My favorites:

Matt Wieters took batting practice this morning. There were no survivors.

Matt Wieters knows when today's WBC Game Chatter will go up. I'd ask him, but I'm so shy around Omnipotent beings.


Matt Wieters don't need no stinking badges.


The Baseball Gods are trying to figure out how Matt Wieters was able to beat up the Baseball Devil (who looks strangely like Ty Cobb) for his abilities.

Matt Wieters will be revealed as Indiana Jones' second son in Indy V.

Matt Wieters can talk to the animals, so don't piss him off, he'll get some Killer Bees on your ass.

Matt Wieters knows who Karim Garcia is.

Does he know who Benjamin Stove is? Because that #### is still driving me nuts 3 years later.

Also: Matt Wieters remembers all the names of Rickey Henderson's teammates, including the two guys who wear helmets in the field.
