That a way to yank a ball Wieters. Glad to hear that about Schoop. Frederick doesnt play another weekend series in Wilmington till next month, Ima try and go up and see them.

I'll probably head up on the next day Bobby Bundy is pitching.

Nice to see one of them mid-round over slot guys doing well (Bundy). They've certainly spent some money on a few of them, cant knock them for that. What's Cam Coffey up too?

He's still in extended ST and I believe he's healthy. The shoulder injury after the TJ surgery really set back his career. Now they have to take it easy on him with the innings, so he never really had a shot at opening with Aberdeen.

I think Im at the point where if I could only pick one player from the O's to watch bat it'd be Adam Jones. Not much excitement going on in this lineup

Agreed. Jones continues to hit the ball hard every at-bat.

Jordan wrote:Matt Wieters had a .356 BABIP his rookie season. Give him that number this season and he has an .800 OPS easily.

He's hitting line drives 21.6% of the time. No doubt Wieters has been hitting the ball hard; there's just been a ton of bad luck. When his fortune turns around I think we'll see the Matt Wieters we've been waiting to see, not that we haven't seen flashes of that this year though.

Honestly, the worries regarding Markakis may be a bit exaggerated. He's hitting line drives at the highest rate of his career, and his .255 BABIP is the lowest of his career.


Two hard hit balls from each of them tonight.
