    The Astros' magic number to clinch the AL West now sits at 9.

    The Astros' magic number to clinch the AL is 21.

    The Astros now have the second-best record in baseball, 1 game ahead of Washington.

    The Astros are now just six games behind the Dodgers, the unstoppable force that was so unstoppable, they made everyone forget how dominant the Astros were to start the season. They are 1-11 in their last 12.

    The Astros finish with a club-record 103 wins if they can finish 17-6; 100 wins if they can finish 14-9.

    And last, but not least: the Astros would have to finish 0-23 to match their 2015, playoff-worthy record of 86-76.

    With how they're getting healthy and coming together, I have a hard time seeing them being worse than 14-9 to finish. Angels, A's, Seattle and Texas before they get to the Sawks? I don't see many losses in there, especially how they've been playing.

    BTW, wanted to add a number: 3.5. That's how many games the Indians have gained during their 14-game win streak. A lot? Yep. But a fairly poor ROI given they haven't lost a game since Aug. 23.

    Chasing is hard.

    It's how you ride into the playoffs. If the Astros keep this pace, I like the chances.

    My favorite was when Arlington went 8-0 during the beginning of the season and gained a half game lol

    I'm hoping the Indians are peaking early and will start to fade.

    Penn and Teller have discussed it, and they have concluded there are no magic numbers, it's an illusion.

    Correa is 4 for his last 11 with a double. Man, I hope it's the start of his revival...

    Oh no doubt. Was more interested in the team-wide funk. McCann and Reddick have killed it, everyone else, not so much.

    The offense will improve. Let's just hope it is clicking when the playoffs start.

    There's now enough data: when Altuve goes, so goes the 'Stros. And he's had a rough 20-game stretch (sub. 800 OPS - most teams would KILL to have a 2B over ~.800 OPS; for him, it's a rather significant drop-off).

    Dude, I was just thinking that, with that exact phrase, but was including Springer also.
