Screwy thing with the magic number is that the Reds could clinch after their game if they win and Cards lose because of central time zone difference. So the walkoff celebration like 2010 may not work out this year.
Cards play in the afternoon both days. So we'll know before the game tomorrow if that's the clincher. Saturday they start at 2 to our 4 I believe, so that day could be trickier. I'm rooting for the Cubs tomorrow, since I'm going to the game tomorrow night.
