With a day off in the schedule (12th) does that automatically decrease one r off the magic number? Thanks.

No.

The magic number is just the number of White Sox wins plus Indians losses (or whoever the 2nd place team is at the time) needed for the Sox to win the the Central.

162 - (1st place team wins) - (2nd place team losses) +1 = Magic Number

Only if Cleveland loses to Oakland that day. :wink:

I've got Sept. 21st circled on my calendar. That's my guess. I'd also love to see the guys just treat clinching as "ho-hum"... a couple extra high-fives and some bubbly in the lockerroom, sure... but not an embarassing celebration of guys getting mobbed on the mound or something. The division title is not the goal.

magic number is affected by GAMES. Not days.

I disagree. It shouldn't be "ho-hum". A division title is still something very special in baseball and something these guys worked their asses off through a long season to win. This isn't the NBA where half the league makes the playoffs. Let the Sox celebrate, especially in front of the home fans. Postseason berths don't happen too often in Chicago so I see nothing wrong with a big celebration providing it isn't too over the top.
