There’s a ton of buzz surrounding the new ray of hope who is set to begin a career tonight in Baltimore at Camden Yards. They’re calling it a watershed moment in Orioles history.
Big League Stew wonders if there’s been a debut as big as Wieter’s in recent memory. We remember when it was our turn to be the talk of baseball as far as debuts go, with Jay Bruce going 3 for 3 with the whole nation watching.
If you are a baseball fan, you’re sure to keep your eye on his name in the box score the next few weeks and especially tonight. We expect it to be a slow night for Wieters as he gets adjusted, and it could come against easier pitching as Dontrelle Willis has had things figured out as of late.
We’ll go ahead and say Wieters goes 1 for 4 with single in his last at bat and a couple strikeouts for funsies. We’re happy for Baltimore. They don’t have enough to be excited about and Wieters is going to make them a lot better lineup in the near future.
