So now we're at 46? or 45? I admit, I don't really get how the "magic number" works until it gets to be under 10. We're up 4.5 with 49 games to play. The Braves have 50 left. If we won 45 games, aside from finishing with 114 wins, which would be pretty damned cool, we'd force the Braves to go 50-0 to tie, so that makes our magic number 45, right? Any combination of 45 Nats wins or Braves losses?
Ah, who cares. Just win.
