Peter Schmuck's final grades for the 2012 Orioles
Baltimore Sun columnist Peter Schmuck offers his final grades for the Orioles' 2012 season. Schmuck's grades are based on each player's performance in relation to his role on the team, his total playing time and his talent level. So, a utilityman who gets a "B" after playing a limited number of games is being graded essentially against himself, not against his teammates or in relation to similar players on other teams.

Wilson Betemit( Karl Merton Ferron, Baltimore Sun / May 26, 2012 )
When healthy, delivered decent offensive numbers for a half-time player. Hit 12 homers and drove in 40 runs and yet it's hard to remember a lot of that. Struggled at times with the glove at third base and in limited time in left field.
