We are 13 games deep into the Baltimore Orioles' 2014 season, and the club is sitting at a mediocre 6-7. The O's are smack dab in the middle of the AL (seventh) in runs scored and 10th in team ERA, kept afloat by Chris Tillman's astounding 0.84 ERA.
Although the team's high expectations have yet to come to fruition due to some of its struggling players, there have been some pleasant surprises.
It's still too early to overreact to a small sample size of statistics, but it's not far-fetched to suggest that the club's disappointing players can turn it around, while the surprises can sustain—or at least approximate—their hot starts.
