    Web site tracks Red Sox magic number

    I thought this web site which tracks the Red Sox magic number was simple and clever. It even made me a little envious of Red Sox fans that they are following a team with a magic number under 20 this early in September.

    I'll lob this softball question for the comedians here to knock out of the park. What could we Reds fans be tracking with a web site this simple?

    How many years are left in our "rebuilding" movement.

    I was surprised when the link didn't lead me to espn.com!

    number of months until Pete Rose decides he needs some more media exposure and hypes another crappy ghost-written autobiography

    number of more times Chris Welsh and Thommarty player-hate each other in the booth until Chris Welsh gets canned for no good reason

    If we'd ever actually started a rebuild instead of trying to fix the foundation with duck tape and glue maybe we'd be closer

    Hey, at least we are using Gorilla Glue now. That's a start.

    Maybe a game like Cliffhangers from the Price is Right to track the average age of the bullpen?

    This one tracks all the races, and unlike many of the internet sites, it takes into account head-to-head matchups which could create or destroy the opportunity for a team to make up ground.

    The magic numbers you see are to clinch a tie. So you need to technically ad one to reach the posteason outright.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Every time I walk into a manufacturing company, I see a "count-up" board noting that said company has gone X days without an accident.

    I suggest a web site that tracks a count-up of how many days since we've seen a Brennaman Adam Dunn bashing. It'd be really easy to maintain as the number would generally always be "0".
