I have been saying since the beginning of the year that he should be the 2-hitter ;-D
He is on fire :-°

I picked him up last night and already he's gotten me a HR and 2RBI. We should have an over-under of how soon we find out he's juicing.

I didn't buy this garbage at all when these yahoo idiots said to dump him. This guy is going to have a great year. I remember reading at the beginning of the season that someone here predicted a Cantu-like 2005 season. I agreed then, and I agree now. Props to whoever said it.

As did I, I actually looked for that thread but couldn't find it. He's the hottest hitter in baseball right now, no question.

He looks really good. I went to the game where he hit 2 hrs, he easily could have hit a 3rd (it ended up a double off the wall i think). He hit to all parts of the field and showed a lot of power as well ;-D

Although he is clearly one of the hottest hitters in the game right now, there are a few things that worry me. Last year, in 398 PA, he had a 22.6 LD% and a .293 BA/BIP that translated in a .268 average. This year, through 190 PA, he has an 18.1 LD% but a .326 BA/BIP that translates into a .303 average. With a lower line drive percentage, but a higher avg on balls in play, he appears to be getting a little lucky so far this year. Also, his HR/FO ratio is at 13.7%, whereas the league average is around 11%.

Plus, when Bay & Co. come back from the other universe that they are playing in right now, the Bucs are bound to put up runs at a much slower pace. Even with a promotion in the lineup, I think Castillo's #'s will not quite be as high as people expect. Still respectable for a 2B, but far from Cantu in 05 as the previous thread suggests IMO.
