Cubs

Joe Maddon's invitation to Simon the Magician seems to have worked, as the Cubs were blasting magic-themed tunes and claiming mystic intervention after an extra-inning win in New York.
The Cubs are ready for Addison Russell, who's never been through a 162-game season, to hit a rookie wall. But the even-keeled second baseman is ready for the grind, reporting that he feels really good.
Is Jason Motte the long-term answer for the Cubs at closer? Joe Maddon said Pedro Strop and Hector Rondon have what it takes, too, but he does like Motte's "pure blunt force" out of the bullpen.
