During the 2013 season, Drew Forrester and Luke Jones of The D&L Window Tinting Morning Reaction will provide the “12-Game Scorecard” for the Orioles, rating the club in 12-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 latest 12-game increment ended on Saturday, meaning Sunday’s loss at Oakland wasn’t considered in this latest scorecard and will be included in the next one.)
