All it takes is 3

Any combination of Cubs wins and St. Louis losses that equals 3 will lock the Division Championship for my heroes.

Considering we're playing St. Louis, we can really do ourselves some good. On Monday, behind a surprisingly powerful Kyle Hendricks, we lowered the Magic Number from 5 to 3 because we not only won, the Cardinals lost.

We face St. Louis again Tuesday and Wednesday. So Wednesday could be the day.

We could officially be the Central Division Champions by Wednesday night.

By contrast, in the East, the Nationals' number to clinch is 8. The Dodgers' magic number to clinch the West is 16.

Let's let Jake's shirt tell the story.
