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.

It should not come as a huge surprise that Johnson hasn't matched his performance from last year, considering it was one of the best years ever by a relief pitcher, but there have been some worrisome moments over the past several weeks. He's already blown twice as many save opportunities as last year and has more losses (7) than his previous three seasons combined. But, that said, he's leading the major leagues in saves again with 33 at the break.
