Houston Astros: Top 10 Prospects for 2015

Where Did Jose Altuve’s 2014 Come From?

We’re not always right. In fact, we’re wrong a lot. We’re even doing a whole offseason series about all the times we were right and wrong. But whether we’re right or wrong, it’s always great to look back at why you were right or wrong so you can be more right and less wrong in the future, right? To that end, our friends at numberFire have decided to look back at Jose Altuve’s...

Jose Altuve Shows Off Jump Swing, Makes Contact On Pitch Over His Head (GIF)

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve could have used a stepladder Monday night. The 5-foot-5 All-Star is having a monster season, leading the league in batting average (.345) and hits (221) while ranking third in steals (54). But he’s also the shortest active player in Major League Baseball, so sometimes he has to get a little wild and crazy in the batter’s box to make...

Is There a MVP-Case for Jose Altuve?

There’s no question that Jose Altuve is having an amazing season. What’s amazing, though, is how little attention it is receiving. Although he plays in a larger-sized market in Houston, his publicity is really suffering from being on one of the worst teams in baseball. But is there a case for Altuve to be the MVP? It might not be as wild as you think. Batting .339/.376/.450 is...

Houston Astros, a team on the rise
