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.

The Orioles caught lightning in a bottle when they got McLouth on a downswing last summer and signed him to a minor league deal. McLouth replaced Brian Roberts' speed in the lineup and gave them a third Gold Glover in the outfield. This year, he picked up right where he left off and ranks among the league leaders in stolen bases.
