All we heard about this kid last year was how he might make the Orioles releveant again. Here's his 2010 numbers so far: .235 Batting Average, 4 Home Runs, 17 RBI

My question to u guys is: Over-rated or he's just on a BAD team?

What I've seen of Weiters to date is that he still has some defensive polishing, such as blocking the plate, to do. He doesn't seem to always position himself when a ball goes in the dirt- especially with runners on.
His bat will be more consistent as time passes and he gets to know the AL pitchers better.

Playing on a bad team like the Orioles can take a toll on a catcher because they are spending more time behind the plate. Name a good hitting catcher on a crappy team.

Agreed- and I have to say that in all of the years I've followed baseball that the Orioles have one of the worst pitching staffs in memory.

Kurt Suzuki isn't a bad hitter nor is John Buck, though Buck has been around for a while and is considered a late bloomer.
