    I suppose this is presumptuous of me to start this. If Irish or someone else opts to quash it, I get that. Don't want to piss in anyone's Cheerios ...

    Anyway, here I go ...

    Dodgers winning, gnats just lost; 23 games left after tonight. I compute that as a magic number of 24 games left, less a 4 game lead, less a gnat loss = 19 ...

    God bless, Junior Gilliam!

    Only thing I oppose is that it's currently only 20! 19 hasn't happened yet, especially with it only being a 1 run lead

    I thought with the SF loss it was 19. If I messed that up, I'll correct it. I've been known to screw up simple equations. I teach English after all.

    Agreed with LA96, no Wild Card magic number.

    19.

    Agree on the WC bullshit. It's the loser's bracket.

    But it's deemed worthy of a champagne celebration these days.

    Still the loser's bracket.

    Pennant or bust

    I'm down for the number NOT including the Water Closet
