The magic number is now in SINGLE DIGITS!

Randy Hundley

Two more drops possible today as the Cubs resume play and the Phillies get another shot at the Brewers and the Wild Card.

Zambrano is on the mound tonight after missing just one start. Let's see how much this tendinitis has affected him. I hope he mans up and brings the win up in Milwaukee. All those that are going to the game tonight, have fun! I'm jealous.

It's Tattoo weekend. From some random dude:

"This is my tattoo I got this year. Obviously Eamus Catuli-Go Cubs

It has a hidden meaning also-

The A is blue (hard to see in the picture but it really is) and the C is red, Anno Catuli-Year of the Cub"

Cubs tattoos are awesome!

Send your Cubs photos to We may post it in a future number drop.

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.
