Yes, the only man who could beat both Chuck Norris AND Bill Brasky in a game of full contact beer pong is coming to Camden Yards tomorrow.
Don't look now, but the Orioles have won 5 out of their last 6, have 3 promising young pitchers in the rotation (without having to sacrifice the growth of the Young Guns), and now have The Most Interesting Catcher In The World (I don't always drink sports drinks, but when I do, I prefer Gatorade…) coming up to single handedly put the team on his massively bulky (but naturally derived) shoulders and carry them back into mediocrity, if not prominence. And yes, it is true that Matt Weiters is such a team player that he once hit a 25 run home run just so that he could get the entire team involved in the game. But we really need to temper our expectations of him, at least until he has had a chance to size up the warehouse and take aim at it's mighty light tower, Roy Hobbs' style.
I do not have the capability to blog from the park, but I already have my tickets and will be reporting as soon as I can get to a computer Friday night / Saturday morning with all the highlights from the only man who, when hit by a pitch, actually allows the BASEBALL to be awarded first base due to the pain inflicted by being thrown against him.
