  1. Also not helping his BABIP is being possibly the slowest baserunner in baseball. And I’m an O’s fan

  2. It all comes down to plate discipline with Wieters. When he’s had stretches of dominance his O-swing% plummets and as a result he walks a little more but mainly just mashes the ball. Watching him when he’s hot is awe-inspiring and you can glimpse the amazing potential that so many people saw in him earlier in his career.

    He has a tendency to ground out to the right side of the infield, and like Kyle said I’m not sure I can remember him ever getting an infield hit.

  3. I wouldn’t claim that this is conclusive, but I went through baseball reference’s list of most comparable players through age 26. One of two guys later had a single season of improved offense, but no one on the list sustained either better power or better overall offense than what he’d already demonstrated he could do by age 26.

  5. I would think part of Wieter’s lack of succes are his career 905 LHP/708 RHP OPS splits. His SLG% is only .400 v. RHP ( .520 v. LHP).

  6. Sliced bread is the best thing since Matt Wieters.
