61-101?

Well, here we are. (Just slightly less than) 10% of the 2010 Chicago Cubs season is in the books and we stand at 6-10.

Projecting over a complete season at that rate we arrive at 60-100. Giving the Cubs the benefit of the doubt with those last 2 games, let's split them. So are we looking at a 61-101 season?

Of course not. Are we? Teams that start slowly never envision that poor rate of success continuing over a whole summer and ultimately reaching triple digits in the loss column. Well, unless you are the Pirates.

Hot streaks await. More cold snaps too. So what's the real outlook for the rest of the season?

Will the Cubs rebound, start plating RISP and holding on to 7th and 8th inning leads? Will Ted Lilly's return and Big Z's leadership in the bullpen be the ticket for a run to the playoffs? Can the starting pitchers continue their success over a full season? Will any of it matter?

Time will tell.
