Basically, it doesn't matter how many games Los Angeles or Milwaukee win or lose, the "magic number" stays the same - the only thing that matters is Red Sox wins. Right now there would be a corresponding Houston loss, and (hypothetically, hopefully) in the World Series a corresponding Los Angeles or Milwaukee loss (and during the World Series, one could theoretically count 8->6->4->2->0), but for right now "10" is flat-out wrong, as discussed just a few posts up from yours.
Unicorn Number is awesome, actually.Well, uh, yes? I’m not sure how this is difficult to be honest.
A magic number needs someone on the other end of you want to combine wins and losses. As the opponents change by round, you can’t really do that in the playoffs. The only number that matters is 11 wins. You can call it the Unicorn number if you want, but it’s not the same thing.
