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.

Take a look at Vin Scully Bobblehead. Matt Kemp Returns. Infield Bobblehead giveaway tonight

Thursday August 30, 2012 is Vin Scully Bobblehead Day! The bobblehead will be given to the first 50,000 valid tickets. Here is the picture the Dodgers posted today:

From email from the Dodgers:
The only way to guarantee tickets to this game, and the Sandy Koufax Bobblehead game on Tuesday, August 7, is with a season ticket plan or the 10-game Flex Plan. Individual tickets will not be made available to the general public. The Flex Plan allows you to pick the games you want to attend during the remaining Dodgers home schedule, with tickets starting at just $11.

Dodgers dropped the first game with the Brewers 3-2. Harang took the loss and Marcum the win.

Is the Infield bobblehead tonight! looking forward to seeing the whole infield of Lopes, Garvey, Cey & Russell all together.

Fiers (0-0) goes against Eovaldi (0-0). Eovaldi was brought over because of Lilly going to the 15 day DL.

It is also the return of Matt Kemp! You can be sure Dodger fans will be chanting louder “MVP”
