So that's where JBN has been . . .

I figured he was so disgusted by the positive vibes the hiring of Theo created here that he could not stand it here anymore, and that he will be back once the honeymoon is over and folks start bashing Theo, Jed and Sveum.

The Cubs have now played 25% of the season and are on pace for 59 wins.  Nobody guessed that low.

Wow, I never would have thought the board would have been overly optimistic  Sort of ironic and sad.

Dave never updated the list.  In my post on April 7th (still there second from the last post on page 1 of this topic),  I predicted that they'd finish 57-105.

see:

57 wins. 

57-105 should get the Cubs the first overall pick in the 2013 MLB Entry Draft.

If I made a prediction that was wrong by the time 35 games had been played, I wouldn't be asking for recognition.

That may be because your prediction was made after the season started and the Cubs had two losses.

So I guess the consensus here is that the first 35 games are pretty much guaranteed to reflect the eventual result of 162 games?

No, they've played a home-heavy schedule - they could certainly end up worse over a full 162 games.

Well, at least it's clear they could not possibly do better.  ;)
