Wieters On The Cover of SI

March 11, 2010 | Thyrl Nelson

Can you jinx a team that already hasn’t won in 12 seasons? It seems that Tom Verducci and the folks at Sports Illustrated are trying, as Matt Wieters graces the cover of this week’s edition. Hopefully it’ll be the first of many memorable Wieters covers, but probably worth picking up and tucking away nonetheless. The article by Verducci is a glaring review of Wieters’ skills and potential, and may serve as a timely reminder that there are aspects of the Orioles’ impending season that still lend themselves to excitement and anticipation, even if the team itself still comes up woefully short in that regard.
