Do you remember when you were a kid and you would go down the stairs 2 steps at a time so that you would get to the bottom faster than the the other kid? Now just imagine that kid is wearing a Brewers outfit, and your in a Cubs jersey...

Basically, you would have the NL central race that the Cubs are currently involved in. Yes Cubs fans, the Cubs have pulled out another game in enemy territory, and what a great game. I was glad to see Ryan Dempster get the win, especially since he hasn't been that hot on the road.

One more game to go, and tomorrow is an afternoon game with Rich Harden starting. Let's Go Cubs!!! For any fans who went to Miller Field this week, send us some pictures of all the fun and excitement.

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.
