Every Day is Opening Day: Big in the Box, Kick High, Swing Hard, Run Fast

Chicago Cubs

Credit Nick Castellanos with the title up there, as the new Cubs outfielder, already known for his next-level thinking, takes that simple philosophy with him to the plate. Every day is Opening Day. Big in the box. Kick high. Swing hard. Run fast.

Oh, and spike your bat when you are jacked up because it gets your teammates and everyone else jacked up, too.

Castellanos’s two homers yesterday gave him 11 for the month of August, his first month with the Cubs, and the same total he collected through the first FOUR months of the season with the Tigers.

Enjoy this stretch, Cubs fans, and the energy Castellanos is bringing to the team. It’s rare, it’s effervescent, and it’s unlikely to last forever. Savor the moments when the sport gives ’em to you.

More to enjoy from Castellanos’s big day, which pushed his line with the Cubs up to a comical .357/.390/.732 (183 wRC+):
