HOLY COW, 9 GAMES LEFT AND THE MAGIC NUMBER IS 9! We're in the single digits! CUBS are 1 1/2 games UP! The Brewers have lost and continue to face strong competition (except the cardinals) the rest of the season.

CUBS play today at 1:20 against the Pirates at beautiful Wrigley Field. Let's get a W!

Send your photos (or links), funny and what not, to to perhaps be included in the countdown!
Sucky site of the day: Silly Brewers fans. Pants are for legs.

Awesome site, thank you! Go CUBS!!

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.
