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.

Taylor Teagarden( Rick Osentoski, USA TODAY Sports / June 19, 2013 )
Let's be fair here. Taylor Teagarden has the most thankless job on the Orioles roster. He didn't even get out of the dugout during the final week before the All-Star break because he plays behind one of the most durable and productive catchers in the game. He's batting only .111, but is it even fair to mention that when he has only played 13 games all season? He's here to play defense and handle pitchers when Matt Wieters needs a day off, and Teagarden actually does that pretty well.
