Why no magic number thread?

BYTO was fun.

You can post pictures, as long as they are appropriate. PM if you need to know how.

And we absolutely need a Magic Number thread ... thanks for starting it!

We should absolutely have a magic number thread. This seems like a good place to have it.Minor suggestion, but I think it would be a good idea to have the actual magic number somewhere on the magic number thread.

I was thinking that if we had a magic number thread independent of this magic number thread, then we could have a magic number thread that shows the number and a magic number thread that talks about the need for a magic number thread. We could also have a thread that describes the origins of the magic number itself, which would be a tremendous addition to the collection of magic number threads.

 

Perhaps another thread could be initiated asking about other magic number thread threads that people would like to see. For example, I would also like a Run Differential magic number thread which would calculate a hypothetical magic number based solely on Run Differential back calculated into games won or lost or lost or won, magically.

Also, I took the question mark out of the title, so, this IS the Magic Number threads. :)

Love all these throwback pics but does any one know the magic number? Just throwing this out there. After the Cleveland series we will either be 3.5, 5.5, 7.5 or 9.5 games ahead.The only one that would put a serious hurt on us would be the 3.5 which would mean we were swept.Given the schedule ahead of us especially the last 10 games with the Tigers and Royals, would anyone bank 1 win this weekend if they could? Most likely result but probably by a very small margin would have us win two of three.

Your post, it almost seems, dare a I say, irrational?

The Magic Number is: 16

 

16 is the number that thouest shall count to as of the end of the Red Stockings and Twins Royal Tilt upon the pitch known as Fenway, ended by the Glorious Hail Rosario. 

 

As of the hour of Midnight thou shall countest to the number of 14, after the Glorious melee upon the pitch of Target. 16 shall not be the number that thouest remains upon, unless thou procedest immediately to 14.

 

En Nomine Patri, Et Filii, Et Spiritus Sancti

 

Amen
