During the 2013 season, Drew Forrester and Luke Jones of The D&L Window Tinting Morning Reaction will provide the “10-Game Scorecard” for the Orioles, rating the club in 10-game increments in a number of categories and looking ahead to how Baltimore will fare over the next dozen games on the schedule.

(Editor’s note: The segment will now be based on 10-game increments instead of the previous 12-game scorecards due to scheduling difficulties centered around scheduled vacations. The specifics of the segment remain the same, however.)

You can hear the full explanation from Monday morning shortly in the BuyAToyota.com Audio Vault.

1. Should the Orioles have been better or worse than their 6-4 mark (three at Tampa Bay, three with Los Angeles Angels, four with Boston)?
Drew: Better
Luke: Better

2. Most Valuable Player/Least Valuable Player
Drew: MVP – Chris Davis; LVP – Pedro Strop (*Forrester didn’t like ganging up on Strop and wanted to pick Chris Dickerson instead)
Luke: MVP – Miguel Gonzalez and Chris Tillman; LVP – Pedro Strop

3. Biggest surprise
Drew: The continued contributions of Danny Valencia
Luke: Not sending Pedro Strop on a rehab assignment prior to his activation from the 15-day disabled list

4. Best thing about the 10-game stretch
Drew: Winning three of four games from first-place Boston
Luke: Completing a 5-2 homestand with good starting pitching against two of the better-hitting teams in the American League

5. Ten games from now…
Drew: The Orioles will be in first place.
Luke: Fans will begin to have false hope for Brian Roberts’ upcoming rehab assignment.

6. Record in the next 10 games (three at Detroit, three at Toronto, four with Cleveland)
Drew: 7-3
Luke: 6-4

7. Stock rising/falling over the next 12 games
Drew: Rising – Matt Wieters; Falling – Jason Hammel
Luke: Rising – Nate McLouth; Falling – J.J. Hardy

8. Grading Buck Showalter in games 61-70
Drew: B+
Luke: B+
