Well, the pre-4th of July festivities in San Francisco are not as great as I thought they would be. No big fireworks show for the Cubs, but they get to come closer to home for the real shows.

Speaking of shows, time to watch the big games between the Cubs and Cardinals this weekend. I am glad to see the Mets come to life tonight and help us in our fight. Go Cubs!!! Time to bring our bats to life.

Have a wonderful Fourth of July, Cubs fans. Please be safe and responsible as you celebrate our nation's birthday.

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.
