With the magic number now down to five, here's the latest from around the web.

From Comcast SportsNet Chicago:

From Cubs.com:

  • Phil Rogers writes that if there was any doubt as to how dangerous the Cubs can be in October, Addison Russell should have put it to rest with his diving play to end the game on Saturday.
  • Neil Ramirez was pumped to be back on the mound on Friday. As for his role for the rest of the season: "I'm going to have to build that trust up."
