71-91?

Those last 16 games went by quickly, eh? The Cubs have now played 32 games - or 20% of the 2010 season. 

After 16 games we were 6-10, four games under .500 in 5th place and 4.5 games behind the Cardinals. After 32 games we are 14-18, still 4 games under .500, still in 5th place and 6.0 games behind the Cardinals.

Playing at this rate and projecting over 160 games we come to 70-90. Giving the Cubs the benefit of the doubt with those last 2 games, let's split them. So are we now looking at a 71-91 season?

Ironically, this is TEN games better than the projection back on April 22. Now don’t you feel better?

Didn’t think so.

Al’s already started the clock on the “Maybe It’s Time for Lou to Step Aside” poll, so I won’t do that. Also, 34% (the largest percent) of BCBers feel this edition of the Cubs will win between 70-79 games.

So my poll is going to be more along the lines of trying to chart what the rest of the season will look like.
