Peter Schmuck's Orioles midseason report card
The 2013 season is well past its mathematical halfway point, but that can't be helped. The All-Star break still is considered the traditional midpoint in the season, so you'll just have to multiply everybody's quantitative stats by a factor of 1.69 to project them over a full 162-game season. While you try to do that in your head, here's our Orioles midseason report card.

If you like odd coincidence, you should love the fact that Darren O'Day is 5-0 in 44 appearances this season, which is exactly what his record was in 44 appearances last season. The only difference is that he's actually been more effective this year. He didn't make his 44th appearance until early August in 2012 and had a 2.74 ERA. This year, his ERA over the same number of games is 2.16, and he has been the most consistent pitcher on the staff.
