Winter is officially here
Just had to get the Mourning post off since it's been two solid months, I think the point has been made.

Please stay tuned for a new (more positive) post coming in the next day or two.

Actually, winter official starts on the winter solstice. In the northern hemisphere, winter will start at exactly 6:04am CST on December 21st.

You may be refering to Tom Skilling's "meterological winter", which is a bunch of hogwash. Those meterologists can't keep a calendar, so they just say Dec 1 is the start.

Looks like you may be in the latter category...

Wow! That seems a little harsh.

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.

This is the year
