Matt Wieters Is This Week’s SI Coverboy

With all the hubbub about Strassy’s debut, I almost forgot about our Beltway Baseball Jesus to the North. Thanks, SI:

The story isn’t online just yet, but I’ve read it, and it gets into how awesome Wieters is and how rare it is to find a catcher who can hit. Let him be one.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    There are a ton of articles today about how the O’s are on the right track, getting better, etc.

    I…just don’t know that I can teach my heart to open up to the Orioles again…after being hurt so many times..

    I would like to hear less about the blO’s on this site. other than that, this site is pretty awesome.

    More O’s please. I wasn’t born when baseball was last in DC, and am actually a baseball fan – thus I am an Orioles fan.

    Well this doesn’t bode well for Matt Wieters or the Orioles, does it?

    Shit balls.

    Crosby one week, an Oriole the next — this DC fan is hoping the cover jinx is alive and well.

    bk, the orioles are a joke. Guaranteed, they will have yet ANOTHER losing season.. What will that be, 14 in a row? You support a dirty franchise, are obviously an idiot, thus you are a dooosh bag.

    I,ve been a Oriole fan for 44 years now since the days of Palmer,McNally,Cuellar and Dobson and will stay hoping. Born and grew up in the Bahamas. Go ORIOLES!!!

    This guy is a stud. Deep down I kind of echo what @DC Landing said…Never want to see young talent on the SI cover…

    The three people I hold responsible for having grown up a baseball orphan are: Griffith, Kuhn, and Angelos. The only one still alive (at least physically) is Angelos (who happens to be dead inside). We have a baseball team now. It’s called the Nationals. bk, It’s ok to recognize that fact. We welcome you as a potential fellow fan. It’s going to be hard finding sympathy in this town if you disparage the Nats while your team deposits the Nationals’ televison revenue.

    Skins, Caps, Wiz, Terps, O’s. These are the the teams I grew up with and am a die-hard fan of each.

    Could never imagine picking a new team or even a second team because one moves into or back to town. Regardless of owners, records, front offices or even the players – these are my teams.

    Fair enough bk. However, being born, raised, and living in DC, why in the hell would I root for the o’s? They are crammed down our throat via MASN, owned by the devil (who makes dooosh bag comments about there being no real basball fans in DC AND was the main obstacle in the way of the relocation of the Expos), will always own the majority of the Nationals’ TV rights… and they suck… bad.

    Im worried this season for the O’s is going to be a giant FAIL. All those young arms go bust. Wieters breaks a leg 3 weeks into the season, Brian Roberts gets old, Markakis continues not to care and Adam Jones suffocates on a piece of chewing gum after landing on his head making a leaping catch in which he is pinwheeled over the wall at Camden.
