Nick Castellanos of the Philadelphia Phillies recently made baseball fans laugh with his hilarious post-game interview. Jimmy Kimmel, the popular TV host, comedian, writer and producer best known for his show Jimmy Kimmel Live, shared a hilarious video of Castellanos’ amazing response to a reporter a few days ago following his NLDS win over the Atlanta Braves.
Reporter Matt Viner caught up with Castellanos just seconds into the game and was forced to remind the Phillies star of one of his accomplishments. There was just one problem: Viner didn’t ask him a single question. Castellanos, still reeling from the pressure of postseason baseball, took a comically dry objection to that.
Jimmy Kimmel responded to the clip on his show (at 10:40):
„It’s a 'thank you’ and a 'f you’, all wrapped up in one.”
Nick Castellanos makes playoff history
Nick Castellanos became the first player in AL/NL history to hit multiple home runs in consecutive playoff games Thursday night, leading the Phillies to a 3-1 victory over the Braves in Game 4 of the NLDS. The 31-year-old hit two home runs in both Game 3 and Game 4.
In Game 3, Castellanos hit two solo home runs, helping Philadelphia to a 10–2 victory. In Game 4, Castellanos smashed two more solo home runs, the first in the fourth inning and the second in the sixth. On Thursday, he hit two home runs off Atlanta’s ace Spencer Strider.
„Castellanos does it again! First player in MLB history to hit multiple home runs in back-to-back postseason games,” ESPN X wrote.
Before Wednesday night, he hadn’t hit a playoff home run since 2014. Castellanos was awarded Most Valuable Player in the 2012 All-Star Futures Game. He was named to the All-Star Game, received the Silver Slugger Award, and was named to the All-MLB Second Team in 2021.
