On the Tribune web site they are actually running two sets of "magic numbers".

The first one for the Cubs is at 5. The second one for the Sox is at 12. Everyone understands the Sox number...but the Cubs 'magic number' is to avoid 100 losses!

Is that something to promote? or act like that's an accomplishment?
