I'm torn about how to feel about Nick Markakis. On one hand, he is arguably the best player on my favorite team. He is young and consistent and should be good for years to come. He should be in Baltimore through at least 2014, hopefully a veteran leading a young Birds team to their 2nd straight World Series. (I'm not a dreamer at all, I swear)
On the other hand, Markakis is about the worst signer on the team. He is one of very few players that has been on the roster all year that I don't have an in-person autograph from. And it's not like I have just missed him a few times. I don't think I have seen him sign more than 10 autographs all season at the Yard; and I don't count when an Orioles employee grabs him after BP to make him sign for some family or group. It really grinds my gears that he doesn't sign more.
So if you are still following my rant, I support Nick because he does seem to have the most Superstar potential of the Birds but I don't count him amongst my favorite O's since he doesn't look out for his fans or autograph seekers.
