Is Jason Castro For Real?

Jason Castro first flew onto my radar after I read a piece predicting his breakout at Beyond the Boxscore. I bookmarked it just to check back on it at the end of the season to see how they did. Plenty of people do bold predictions lists, but this one seemed a little different. There was a track record, albeit a small one, of success and I thoroughly enjoyed the analytics process...
