With today's beating of the Cardinals at Wrigley, the National League Wild Card Magic Number for the Cubs has dropped to 8! There's another chance for the number to drop tonight if the Giants lose later tonight.

Are the Cubs better off on the road for a one game Wild Card playoff berth than being at Wrigley?

When the Cubs beat the division leading Cardinals, the National League Central Magic Number drops by two. It's now

I thought the number drops when the Giants lose not the Pirates?

What does the 22 signify? There's only 15 games left so it doesn't make sense
