Peter Schmuck's Orioles midseason report card
Yes, we know that the 2014 season is well past its mathematical halfway point.
The Orioles have played 94 games, but the All-Star break still is considered the traditional midpoint in the season, so if you want to project anyone's midseason stats over a full 162-game season, you'll just have to multiply that player's quantitative stats by a factor of 1.72.
While you try to do that in your head, here's The Baltimore Sun's 2014 Orioles midseason report card. Keep in mind that players are judged in the context of their own talent level and role on the team.

Adam Jones -- A-( Al Drago, Baltimore Sun / July 10, 2014 )
Sometimes, it's frustrating to watch an overly aggressive Jones get himself out. But that just comes with the territory with a five-tool All-Star who is just settling into his prime. Jones is on pace to bat higher than .300 for the first time in his career, and he should come close to matching last year's run-production numbers. He has grown more calculated at the plate as the season has progressed, so it isn't unreasonable to think he might even pump up the volume in the second half. Grade: A-
