Because no one else feels the need to be outraged that the Orioles best player isn't playing at his best currently. A month ago everyone was saying he was the best offensive catcher in baseball. Why should this month mean more than last month? What do you want everyone to say? What do you want to happen to Wieters when he's not hitting? You just seem to want to be angry about it. Maybe people are just more accepting than you of the fact that baseball players have ups and downs throughout their seasons and their careers.

Being disappointed is fine. Your initial post, along with the other thread you started, makes it seem like everyone needs to be outraged ("Why does this guy get a pass?") that he's not performing up to your expectations. Like accepting him for what he is (and most of us think he's better than you think he is) is wrong.
