Phillies sweep the Brewers in a 4 game series. Now, that may be helping the Cubs move their clinch date sooner for the NL Central, but that means the Cubs may be seeing the Phillies in the NLDS. I would rather have the Brewers in and a colder team in the DS...

Not much to write on this. I'm watching the Cubs in Milwaukee beating up on the Astros. (weird)

Mark, the editor of, at a Cubs game @ Shae Stadium with his son.

He wrote, "This is a magical season, but they are scaring the daylights out of me with this last slide".

Well, Mark, the slide is over. Time to march into the post season!

Thanks for the email to, Mark! Too bad we can't tailgate before Cubs games.

The Cubs can't play the Brewers in the NLDS - same division remember.

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.
