Magic number time

This is my favorite time of year.  As pennant races wind down, inevitably the magic numbers begin to show up in the standings. My beloved Reds, completely unaccustomed to having a magic number next to their name, currently have a magic number of 17. The magic number does normally show up in papers until it gets down to 20.

The Reds lead was up to 8 games about a week ago. It got back down to 5, but now stands at 6 after a Reds win and Cards loss last night. I guess I can take the suspense as long as the Cardinals don’t get a magic number next to their name.
