Castellanos a hit as Cubs take on Giants

In Nicholas Castellanos' world, every day is Opening Day.

"Why is today not Opening Day?" Castellanos asked a reporter who pressed him on the issue. "Prove to me that it's not."

The reporter cited the Cubs' record, which is now 67-58, a far cry from when teams open the season at 0-0.
