Living near the workplace is one of the unique attractions of playing in a vibrant residential neighborhood like Wrigleyville. For the players and staff who take advantage, it means almost nonexistent commutes, more time with family and a chance to mingle with the surroundings in a way that might not be possible in other cities. For residents, well, you might have a Cub living next door. (AP Photo/Kiichiro Sato) (Kiichiro Sato/AP)

The Dodgers eked out a 4-3 win over the Nationals in NLDS Game 5 on Thursday night, meaning they headed to Chicago to take on the Cubs in the NLCS starting Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on FS1.
