Matt Wieters: Good Timing

On the same day where the Orioles had their smallest crowd EVER at Camden Yards, GM Andy McPhail announced that the Orioles were finally calling up top prospect Matt Wieters. Wieters will play his first game on Friday at Camden Yards.

Rejoice, Orioles fans. A reason to be excited about the last place Orioles!

As the Orioles continue to build for the future, there is no doubt that Wieters will play a major role in that. If Wieters is as good as advertised, the O's could be very, very good by 2011 or 2012. Between Wieters, Markakis, Adam Jones, and Brian Roberts; the Orioles are quietly building a solid core for the future. There is plenty of reason for Orioles fans to be excited and get out to the ballpark (even on a crappy night!).

Now comes the tough part for Andy McPhail...GET SOME PITCHING!
