The Cubs "Other" Magic Number

As I'm sure all of you TD fans out there have noticed, we have added a magic number counter on the top left of the page, which currently stands at 15. For the sake of full disclosure, a magic number is the number of a combination of Cubs wins and/or Brewers losses that it would take to secure the division championship. But, in all actuality, the Cubs have a magic number of 12 to make the playoffs. If the Cubs win and/or the Phillies lose 12 games before the season ends, the Cubs will be in the playoffs. I think I speak for all Cubs fans when I say that this would be a huge disappointment to not take the division, but I wanted everyone to know that the Cubs are only 12 games away and can start rooting against the Phils.
