Magic Number countdown

Recommended Posts

The Tiger's magic number is down to 38 now. I was thinking a count down thread might be fun as long as it doesn't jinx us.

I really think the Tigers can pull this off.

The funny thing is that I have been counting this off with the Twins and Sox for the past 10 days and debating on whether I should start a thread on it or not being concerned about a jinx, but it's all good I think. It's pretty exciting! Go Tigers!

Isn't that what Oblong's sig is all about?

So when I want to know the magic number I just need to post something obnoxious enough to get a warning, but so bad to get banned?

Where do you guys find that chart that showed the winning percentage that the other divisional teams would have to achieve in order to catch the Tigers?

It's just an Excel spreadsheet on my desktop.

Here is a link to a google spreadsheets version. I allowed editting priveleges.

Cool, thank you! That's exactly what I was looking for.

Looking at that definitely maakes me feel better. Even if the Tigers do tank a little bit, the White Sox or the Twins would still have to play better ball then they have played all season to catch up at this point. I guess it's more of a testament to how bad the division is, but whatever, I'll take it.

No, no, no, no. Pull this thread. You can't start doing magic numbers before September, that's gotta be a jinx......stop it.

Yeah this was a bad idea. Can we erase this thread please?

It actually did go down today though. The Sux do suck.

I'm not deleting the thread. Magic numbers get discussed on White Sox message boards so if there's a jinx they will cancel each other out.

Do they have one of these on the Twins board? I absolutely do not believe in jinxes but if there is any possibility of one being real, it would involve the Twins in some way for sure.

You can't trust others to do this kind of work.

I think the Twins magic number is 44.

I agree and I think all avenues have been exhausted to defeat the Twins curse/jinx and it's really the stuff of X-Files. The truth is out there.
