Today the Reds Magic number is as follows:

38 vs. St. Louis
35 vs. San Diego
35 vs. Philadelphia

The Magic Number between a pair of teams is the number of your team's wins plus your opponent's Losses which will put your team ahead of that opponent at the end of the season. Any day that the Reds win or their main opponents lose, the magic number drops.

For the National League Central reace, THIS LINK (http://www.magicnumbers.org/magic.php?division=nlc&year=2006)will show the current magic numbers.

For the National League wild card race, THIS LINK (http://www.magicnumbers.org/magic.php?division=nlx&year=2006)will show the current magic numbers.

Magic number update:
As of the end of games on 9/26/06:

Reds Magic number vs. Cards is 9
Reds Magic number vs. Astros is 7
Cards Magic number vs. Reds is 4
Cards Magic Number vs. Astros is 5
Astros Magic number vs. Cards is 8
Astros Magic number vs. Reds is 5

The Magic number drops 1 point for every victory or opponent loss. Tonight, the Reds magic number vs. the Cards dropped 2 (one for the Reds win, another for the Cards loss).

So for example, if the Reds go 4-1 in their last 5, Houston goes 2-3, and the Cardinals 1-5, we win the division outright! Ties are also possible, with a playoff game resulting....

A long shot to be sure, but it is possible! In late September, we are still in it....a little bit.

The Reds are lurking at half-court hoping to throw in a miracle buzzer beater.

Or are they that guy pulled from the stands at half-time, hoping to win a car with a half court shot?

We haven't even been this close in years. I'm holding out till the end. If nothing happens. It sure has been nice to root for our team up until the very end something we haven't done in several years.
I would like to personally thank Mr. C, Wayne K, and Jerry for the job they have done this year for having a better year than we all could have dreamed of coming out of spring tranning.
