The New Gadget

If you actually come to the blog page (as opposed to simply reading the posts through an RSS feed) you will notice a new gadget on the left hand side of the screen. If this works, it will calculate and keep updated the current ‘Magic Number’ for the Tampa Bay Rays. What this number represents is the necessary Rays wins and/or second place team’s losses for the Rays to clinch their division title.

I have watched magic numbers before. I grew up in Cincinnati watching the Big Red Machine, and lived in St. Louis during the heyday of Whiteyball. It is a happy diversion.

I wonder what playoff tickets cost?
