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.

Jason Hammel( Karl Merton Ferron, Baltimore Sun / July 13, 2013 )
Orioles fans keep waiting for Hammel to pitch the way he did before he got hurt last year, but he really hasn't recaptured the form that made him so effective while the Orioles were emerging as the surprise team of the American League. He's 7-6 in spite of a 5.24 ERA and the club is 10-9 in his 19 starts, but it has been a tale of two quarter seasons, considering the Orioles are 1-7 in his past eight starts.
