Willson Contreras oozes swag.
The Cubs' fiery catcher has always worn his emotions on his sleeve and Friday was no exception.
Contreras hammered Carlos Martinez's 2-2 offering into the basket in left-center to give the Cubs an early 2-0 lead and his bat flip/reaction was incredible:
Here's a closer look:
It's funny that Contreras even reacted that way given the ball just *barely* got out, but hey, a homer's a homer.
Contreras has been flat-out raking since the All-Star Break, going 10-for-23 with five runs, three doubles, three homers and nine RBI. That's a .435/.480/.957 slash line and 1.437 OPS in the six second-half games he's played in.
That's boosted his season line to .276/.341/.496 (an .837 OPS) with 14 homers. He's on pace to drive in 85 runs, second only to Anthony Rizzo on the Cubs.
Yes, this truly is becoming "Willy's" team.
