Cubs don't win again, but the Brewers are not friends with the Padres. Brewers lose. Magic Number goes down! Tomorrow may be the day that we see it all come down.

Let's all cheer,

And what could be better than WOO WOO on a horse to drum us up?(except a cubs win)



The Cubs are about to clinch, could happen tomorrow! When it happens, is going to switch to playoff mode. The Magic Number will be the number of games until the Chicago Cubs win the World Series. So, the number will be reset after the end of the regular season to 11. Go CUBS! and let's make it happen!

How The Number Works

The Chicago Cubs Magic Number is derived by the following equation: Total Number of Games + 1 - Wins by the Cubs - Losses by Best Opponent.

The Magic Number is affected by one of two events, a Cubs win or the best opponent losing. The number is 163 at the beginning of the season. When the number hits 0, the Cubs have clinched the NL Central and are in the PLAYOFFS!

This site represents the Magic Number for clinching the National League Central Division . If the Wild Card becomes relevant for getting into the post season, this site may contain both. In that case, the Wild Card number will clearly be denote.

Shoot an email to with comments and suggestions. Also, drop a Cubs theme'd photo with a story. It may be posted during future number updates.
