    It's August 1st so it's time to start thinking about the pennant chase in earnest and really start scoreboard watching. With tonight's win the Astros' magic number to clinch the division sits at 56.

    I actually think it is cool to even be able to talk about this

    And will be fun to keep this thread alive until we DO WIN IT

    But let's get the number right

    It's 56: Which is a pretty historical baseball number :grin:

    Let me check on that,maybe i am doing it wrong.
    If we have 59 wins, 46 loses that totals 105 less 162 games to be played.162-105= 57

    Right now we have 3 games lead, which is 57-3=54

    That would mean a tied, so it should be 55.

    No, magic number is to WIN division so must add 1 to 162 and subtract our wins and the Angels losses

    OP had it right, 56

    Ok, thanks, now i know why people say i go with loses instead of games behind. Our 3 game lead is more 2 game lead because is not in our hands the outcome.

    I'm not sure at what time the magic number comes into play, but I know now is too early.

    It never "really" comes into play, it's a "magic number"

    But it's fun for some of us to track, for those who don't want to track it this "early", it's pretty easy to not click on the thread

    We should track two Magic Numbers, playoff berth first, then division.

    That gets a little tough because there are so many teams chasing us for the playoffs. Right now the number would be 54

    I don't want to face Price in a 1 game playoff, too risky

    Let's win the damn division!!!!!!!

    On a similar note, I shall be starting a countdown thread shortly regarding how many wins the Astros are away from a World Championship.
