A preview of the national league playoffs? Well, then we saw how it went down. I'm reposting post 24's text. Good read from 89Cubs.

Unbelievably amazing game! Aramis is my favorite player - and it's times like this that I remember just why I like him so much.

This should show any team - that it doesn't matter if your lead is by 3 runs, or even 9. If we can keep up with these plays, we'll be playing well into October.

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.

This is the year
