The magic number

With closing troubles, the Phillies new magic number to clinch the NL East division is 3.

Ryan Madson managed to establish himself today as a viable playoff closer with (finally!) a successful save against the Brewers after a five-run late surge to bring Milwaukee within one.

However, this deal should have been sealed long ago — or at least two days and as many games ago when the magic number was four.

In other news, Wildcat Michael Vick was happy with his non-role role in today’s game. The real winner today was Kolb, with another 300-plus yard performance and no interceptions.
