    2020 Reds Magic Number Thread

    So I no I am late starting this thread this season but here we go. Assuming a 60 game season is actually played there are 3 magic numbers in play:

    1. Division Title
    2. Division 2nd Place:
    3. 2 Wild Cards
    The Reds are currently outside looking in as there are 3 teams not in the 1 or 2 slots which have better records at this moment.

    Currently:
    1. Reds Magic Number to clinch the division is 57.
    2. Reds Magic Number to clinch at least 2nd is 56.
    3. Reds Magic Number to clinch at least a Wild Card is 56

    I think we can catch the Cubs over the next 10 games or so....personally a little more concerned about the Cardinals long term over the season. Still think we win the division barring some major injuries.

    Re: 2020 Reds Magic Number Thread

    Currently the vast differences in games played makes a mess of this:
    1. Reds Magic Number to clinch the division is 53.
    2. Reds Magic Number to clinch at least 2nd is 53. [Due to the Cards having played so few games. If we were looking to eliminate the Brewers (current #2) the elimination # is 51]
    3. Reds Magic Number to clinch at least a Wild Card is 51 Based on winning percentage the current 2 WC teams are SF and the Nats.

    Reds are 1 1/2 games behind the Brewers for the 2nd NL Central slot and 1 game behind the Nats for the last WC slot.

    I used the wrong photo yesterday. It should have been a player with #52. Kyle Farmer loses his day of glory.

    1. Reds Magic Number to clinch the division is 40. (Reds trail the Cubs by 5.5 but feels like much more)
    2. Reds Magic Number to clinch at least 2nd is 42. [Reds trail the Cards by 2.5 games, Cards lack of games effects the number )
    3. Reds Magic Number to clinch at least a Wild Card is 36. Based on winning percentage the current WC teams are San Francisco and Colorado. The Mets, Arizona and Washington are all ahead of the Reds)

    Reds are 1 game behind Colorado for the 2nd NL WC slot and San Francisco for the 1st.

    Checking back in:
    1. Reds Magic Number to clinch the division is 23. (Reds trail the Cubs by 5.5 same as Aug 24)
    2. Reds Magic Number to clinch at least 2nd is 25. [Reds trail the Cards by 3 games, Cards lack of games effects the number )
    3. Reds Magic Number to clinch at least a Wild Card is 25. (Number is effected by Miami's low game count- Based on winning percentage the current WC teams are San Francisco and the Miami Marlins of Florida. The Mets, Colorado and Milwaukee are all ahead of the Reds)

    Reds are 2.5 game behind Miami for the 2nd NL WC slot and 3.5 of San Francisco for the 1st. Magic number to be ahead of SF is only 21.



    The Reds have 17 games remaining:
