Doesn't that make it that much funnier? Oh, the Sox are in a fight for the postseason, we're over here trying desperately to stave off 100 losses.

Really looks like the Trib is having some fun at Ricketts' expense.

Maybe...just don't know. It's hard sometimes to understand what they think really counts, that goes for the Tribune, the Cubs organization and Cub-fans in general.

No, it's really not. This is a dig at the Cubs. End of.

Cubs "magic number" is 6 with nine games to go.

It's four. They have 59 wins. Four more and they have 63.

...with 3 games against the Astros at home to end the season. I think they'll be close, but will be able to avoid 100 losses.

They need to win one more game in order to avoid tying their worst record ever-59-103, done in 1962 and 1966.

They're at 94 losses now. This makes it the 6th time since 1996 that they've lost at least that many games. This includes 96 losses in 2006, 95 losses in 2002, and 97 losses in 2000. It's a "W"ay of Life!

In comparison, the Sox have lost more than 90 games only once (92 losses in '89) since 1976.

You might as well just light that magic number up, because this season is all going up in smoke <- this is supposed to be a joke .. if i wasn't so colorblind then i would have used the teal thing

This morning on the web site I noticed the Tribune had removed both magic number references for the Cubs and Sox. Maybe they know something...

...and with a 3-0 loss tonight, the Cubs and Astros will play a rare game tomorrow:

Two one hundred loss teams facing each other. Someone told me this would be the first time in MLB history. Does anyone know if this is true?

Speaking of magic numbers, the Tigers just clinched the division.

I really wanted to see a Sox division winner and a Cubs 100 loss season. Guess I'll settle for the guilty pleasure of 100+ Cubs losses...

Dump:

That's hard to believe given all the years of the Philadelphia A's / Washington Senators / Cubs teams and the early New York Mets / Montreal Expos etc.
