Matt Wieters, 2012 Panini Triple Play #9
Well, the starting pitching is still a fright, but I guess the hitters are feeling a bit better. After scoring a total of 22 runs through the first seven games of the season, the Orioles broke out and stomped the Yankees 14-5 this afternoon. They'd managed 10 hits only once, so of course today the O's racked up 20, and in the process doubled their season home run total by going yard three times. One of those homers came from Matt Wieters, one of the few Baltimore hitters who's had any success thus far. Today he drove in three runs and ran his season-opening hitting streak to seven games, giving him a team-best .370 average. It's early, but it would be nice if #32 were able to bounce back from the worst offensive campaign of his career.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
