I wish they would stop hyping the kid and let him play. Very excited about him too, but I think things would be easier for him if he were under the radar. Why not feature Markakis - a guy who is already the heart and soul of the team - on the cover, and let the kid have some time to develop?
Fair enough. It almost seems to follow the old NBA model of marketing individual stars. To his credit, Wieters seems to be taking it all in stride. Markakis certainly doesn't get his due. I truly believe things will change for him once he makes his first All-Star appearance. People suddenly discovered Carl Crawford last season, as if he hadn't already been a solid player for years.
