No team remains undefeated (or winless) for long in major league baseball, but it's tempting to think of a hot or cold start as predictive for the rest of the season. We might barely notice a four-game losing streak in August, but in April it seems to mean everything in the world. Six teams still have goose eggs in either the win or loss column. Do their hot or cold starts suggest anything about their seasons in general?
