Where are you getting 45 as the Sox's Magic Number to Make the post-season?

Currently, Magic Number to win the Division = 50, Magic Number to win the Wild Card = 52 (if my math is correct)

I'm not exactly sure if the Standard formula works (G + 1 - Wa - Lb) if your calculating for a team that is trailing a race (as we would be trailing the Red Sox in the Wild Card), but there's no way our Magic Number to win the WC could be lower than the one to win the division, since the Red Sox have a better record than the Twins.
