Well then. I was ready to post the Cubs win, but nope. KW didn't finish and Cedeno should be demoted.

At least the Brewers are still on their slide too. The Magic Number drops. Thank you San Diego.

What a beautiful day in Chicagoland. I'm enjoying a pint outside at Tommy Nevins Pub in Evanston. Hope you're getting out too on a perfect late summer afternoon.

Go Cubs! We'll win again soon...

Woods performance was horrible, and Ceneno's even worse. So far, Wood has blown 1/5th of his save opportunities.

Now it's 15! Milwaukee blows a ninth-inning lead and the Reds now help us with a 5-4 win.

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.
