Just one of the many Wieters’ related text messages I’ve received today!
Fans are going nuts. I’ve been listening to the radio all day and everyone is excited. Matt Wieters might be the most hyped prospect to ever come up in Baltimore.
He won the Baseball America’s Minor League Player of the Year in 2008. Delmon Young, Joe Mauer, Paul Konerko, Andruw Jones, Derek Jeter, Manny Ramirez, and Frank Thomas were all winners of the award in their respective years.
It’s a holiday here in Baltimore today. Fireworks, student night, a 4 game winning streak, the stage is set for Matt.
So get your ass out to yard and cheer on the Birds. Good days are coming and 2009 is the just the beginning!
