10 Bold Predictions for 2012: Matt Wieters, All-Star

As part of our preview for the upcoming 2012 season, we’ll be doing a 10 Bold Predictions for 2012 series that will be featured between now and Opening Day. Our seventh prediction: the Baltimore Orioles young phenom Catcher and the All-Star year that lies ahead for him.

We’ve been waiting on Matt Wieters to have a breakout season and enter he next tier of offensive players in the league.


And until life got busy, I was going to tell you that Matt Wieters was a sure-fire All-Star this season. It was one of our 10 predictions.

I have to get credit for this. Dude is a stud.
