Something I like about Matt Wieters
Of course, I love his bat and his glove and his outstanding talent, a talent I hope
continues to grow and I hope he becomes a fixture for the Orioles for
years to come.
But there is a very small, almost intangible quality to him I really like.
This guy is not ever too high or low. He isn’t a quote machine or a quipster,
but that is more than ok to me.
I like the fact that Matt always comes off the same, kind of soft
spoken and matter of fact and measured. He may not be on anyone's interview
list right now, but I get an idea that there is a lot more beneath the surface that he
doesn’t show. He seems supremely confident without being brash, he appears to
keep his emotions always in check and is the kind of leader that they used to say
"Walks softly and carries a big stick".
I am really liking this ballplayer. He is the strong, silent type. In an era where
humility is taking a beating, where all kinds of celebrities, not just athletes seem
bent on self promotion and overindulgence, this guy just goes about his business
and gets the job done.
Very well I might add.
He also loves dogs.
What’s not to love about this guy?
