OFFICIAL: Motion to the Chair (Al) of BCB.

******************************************************
In the interest of:
Not counting chickens before they hatch,
Focusing on just winning the next game/ regular season series,
Not bringing the wrath of the baseball gods,

I hereby motion that:
We as a members of the BleedCubbieBlue institution will not post any "Magic Numbers" until the Chicago Cubs' "Magic Number" for making the playoffs is no greater than 10.

Acceptable "Magic Number" postings will be the following (if appropriate): 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0.

[Badger Amendment] The "Magic Number" cannot be posted in the month of August, regardless of how low it may be.

 

******************************************************

So Al the ball is in your court.  This is just a friendly suggestion from 40% of your loyal readers.

Here are the official results of the poll (337 respondents):

Yes: The motion should pass as is -- 137 votes 41%
Amendment to the motion: BCB should be able to talk about "Magic Numbers" at 15 games -- 29 votes 9%
Amendment to the motion: BCB should be able to talk about "Magic Numbers" at 20 games 85 -- votes 25%
No: I don't care about the baseball gods. Put "Magic Number" up right now. -- 86 votes 25%

----------------------------------------------------------------------


On a personal note. It is interesting that 50% of folks agree that we shouldn't mention the "Magic Number" until at least 15 games out or less. And 50% think it should be 20 games or more.

I wonder if a fair compromise between the two sides would be 15 games.

Just a suggestion.

Thanks to everyone who participated and voted.
