Nice... the Cubs did just what I thought they would, they countered the Brewers with a fabulous trade of our own. Let us all welcome Rich Harden and Chad Gaudin. Let's hope they bring some wins with them. Great win tonight, let's keep it up. Go Cubs Go!!!

And for all of you thinking there would be some reference to the number and, well something else, I would just like to remind you to get your mind out of the gutter...

You mean like a reference to the 69' 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 pickles@cubsmagicnumber.com with comments and suggestions. Also, drop a Cubs theme'd photo with a story. It may be posted during future number updates.
