According to Anthony Gargano, Nick Castellanos has purchased Ben Simmons’ house in South Jersey
Spring Training is wrapping up and the Phillies will soon make their journey to the North East back to the Delaware Valley to begin the 2022 MLB season.
With new faces inside the clubhouse, guys like Kyle Schwarber and Nick Castellanos will need to find places to live in the Philadelphia area. According to Anthony Gargano on 97.5, Castellanos already purchased a house in South Jersey, one that used to be owned by none other than rat boy Ben Simmons.
When I first watched this clip, I agreed with The Cuz and was concerned about the spirits left behind by one of the worst Philadelphia athletes / humans ever. Spirits are always a concern and I was ready to ship a bunch of sage to the Castellanos family to properly cleanse the house before he moved in.
Nick Castellanos Thrives in Chaos
However, I quickly realized that Nick Castellanos is no stranger to curses. We all know that when something bad happens in the world, Castellanos immediately follows by hitting a home run.
We have seen it on multiple occasions, most recently during Spring Training and went he went yard for the first time in a Phillies uniform while Buck Martinez was reading an apology letter from Blue Jays’ coach Pete Walker who was recently arrested for a DUI.
Obviously, that was one of many examples over the past year with Castellanos and unfortunate announcements in the broadcast in which he delivered a hit in return. The first, and most epic, being Thom Brenneman’s apology for saying a homophobic slur on a hot mic.
That being said, maybe living in a haunted house will deliver us more memorable moments at Citizens Bank Park this summer? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
The biggest problem with the Ben Simmons house is the inside. What a total mess.
Castellanos is all business. He didn’t go to college and just hits baseballs to feed his family. No time to sit around and play Call of Duty all day like Ben Simmons did in his “Simmo the Savage” room.
Although, “Casty the Carnivore” (TLL Trademark) does have a great ring to it.
Regardless, at the end of the day, it’s a good sign that the Castellanos family has found a new home in the Philadelphia area. We’re now just two days away from Opening Day and the Phillies continue to destroy baseballs down in Florida. Lets hope that continues when they return to Citizens Bank Park on Friday to kick-off the 2022 MLB season.
