Well, if you can't beat them, join them.

I would like to thank the Reds for helping us out with their extra inning win over the Brewers.  I do hope that the Cubs find their winning ways again.  I hope we see the Cubs bats come to life tomorrow.

ARGH! At least Lou went bonkers...I like that! F Albert Pujols, did that one he hit land yet? This is making me crazy.

Dusty baker might be gone but his legacy still pollutes the clubhouse. Now his teachings have been passed on to his disciple Derrek Lee.

I don't want to hear everything is ok, that the media and fans are making a big deal,and that this slump is overblown.

I want accountability, desire, and a sense of urgency.


BTW Lee, not hitting into anymore double plays would be nice too.

I'm watching the CREW of BREW tie the game on MLB Gamecast. The Reds had a 3-1 lead off C.C. and the SUNSHINE BAND. Here I am watching BREWER games because I'm not as confident is US winning tonight!! We have to get hot, and hot RIGHT NOW!!!

How can anyone be confident in us right now? I am running playoff scenarios at work wondering if we can get in by going 4-14 down the stretch (which would be 5-22 overall to end the season)

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.
