Cubs Win!!!  Cubs Win!!!  Cubs Win!!!  FINALY!!!!!!!

I think we can all breathe a short sigh of relief.  I hope that this means that the Cubs have shrugged off their losing ways and can now look forward to winning this series with the Cards.  I am not excited about the Cubs bullpen making these games way too close for comfort, but as long as we win, then I guess I can take the mild chest pains.


Melissa from Charlotte, NC asks the ultimate question that everyone's dying to have answered while at a Braves/Cubs game in Atlanta

Hooray! Kerry Wood needs to get out there on a more consistent basis, it's fine. It's all fine. (I hope)

Now... we can finally take a breath!! HARDEN tonight and I like our odds. Plus, the CREW of BREW have to play a tough, hungry PHITIN' PHILS team that knows with a four game sweep they'll be the WILD CARD leaders. So.. with all that said, let's hope that MAGIC NUMBER is down to 11 after tonight!! GO CUBS GO!!

shouldn't the number be 12 since for the cubs to win 12 the brewers have to lose once?

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.
