The Cubs are 9.5 up on the Nationals and Giants and the Magic Number is down to 4. When do we clinch a playoff spot?

What sucks is that it could be Friday night after the Giants or Nationals lose, with us playing in the afternoon.

Was going to make a sarcastic comment but I'll instead just point out that your choices are all in late October.

It's just that my mind has been in October for weeks now, with the division seemingly out of grasp in the final month.

At this point I want the Giants and/or Nationals to keep winning since I'll be in town Saturday and at the games on Sunday and Monday.

I am going to the game Saturday so that would be nice to see it happen then but I think it happens Friday. Cubs knock it down to 2 on their own and also the Nats or Giants lose 2 by end of the night Friday.

If it's going to be Friday please be because the Cubs won the afternoon game.

I picked Thursday because I'm unusually optimistic.

Also I didn't realize until just now that today is Tuesday. I'm not sure how I suddenly cannot keep track of my days of the week.

Tuesday should be an option because these guys definitely seal the deal on the first date.

Yeah, I just want it to be after a Cubs win, like in 2008, rather than after another team loses, like in 2007.
In Theo we trust.
