Folks, we know here at CMN that we haven't kept up with the Cubs Magic # countdown much in 2012 (ok, not once), but we can honestly say that we're excited for 2013 and all the youth that are cutting their teeth in "The Show" this year.  We think 2013 will be an exciting time to be a Cubs fan!

Sean - the magic number may be 2014 at this point. Ugly April so far. Hey -- at least they won the game I made it to at Wrigley this year.

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 pickles@cubsmagicnumber.com 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

I will watch from just over the rail.
