Happ channels LaVine, Wolf of Wall Street after no trade

[view original post]

Ian Happ is not (bleeping) leaving.

For all the rumors and speculation around the All-Star outfielder in recent weeks, the Cubs held on to Happ (and Willson Contreras) as the trade deadline passed Tuesday.

Happ, who’s under club control through 2023, will remain on the North Side at least through this season and play out the final two months of 2022 with the Cubs.

Happ, a 2015 first-round pick who’s spent his entire career with the Cubs since debuting in 2017, reacted to the news by channeling Jordan Belfort from “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” and Bulls All-Star Zach LaVine.

Happ tweeted a gif of an iconic scene from the movie, when Belfort, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, declares, “I’m not f—— leaving.”

LaVine, who was a free agent this summer, also channeled that scene when he re-signed with the Bulls last month. He posted a video on Instagram with his head photoshopped on DiCaprio’s character.
