A new article in FoxSports today by Dayn Perry states a lot of reason why the Cubs (currently on pace for 101 wins) cannot keep their current pace. A lot of his reasons are obvious and he does bring up some good points such as overworking Marmol and Dempter's unusually good start. I still believe that Demp will have a year better than most expect due to his off-season conditioning and the early results are there. Can he keep the pace? I say yes as optimism is big in my mind.
Other points brought up include the lines Soto and ONEDEC have put up so far. Yes, it's a possibility that their numbers will go down, but I think it's completely sustainable. I remember last year when Fontenot got off to a ridiculous start, but sooner or later MLB pitching will figure you out. It's all in how adjustments are made throughout MLB's long marathon of a season.
