Dodgers Magic Number is Six. How to Calculate Magic Number

Dodgers magic number is Six! Will the Dodgers clinch at home? I checked the D’Backs schedule and they are off on Thursday. for the Dodgers, Thursday is the start of a four game series with the Giants. The D’Backs return home to receive the Colorado Rockies.

I had to explain to a friend how the magic number gets calculated so I decided to put it here.

The short method:
(# of games yet to be played + 1) – (# of games ahead in the loss column of the standings from the closest opponent)
Dodgers example as of 9/11/13:
(18+ 1) – (13) = 6
OR
(# of games in a season +1) – (team in 1st place Wins) – (losses by 2nd place team)
Dodgers example as of 9/11/13:
163 – 85 – 72 = 6

Let’s hope the number goes down again tonight. I am in a pool to guess when the Dodgers will clinch but I don’t think I will win. I ended up with 9/17 and hopefully it will be before.
