We agree with a comment posted this past week by Wayne Chandler. In effect, we Astro fans all want one thing first when it comes to our wonderful Mr./Senor Jose Altuve. We want him to stay happy, healthy, and humble about his major contributing role in the ultimately highest levels of baseball success they have achieved in 2017 and continue to seek in 2018, with all the important help he’s getting from all our other club’s great players.

We would simply add a thought that we feel certain that Wayne Chandler and all other serious Astros fans might also be cool with as a no-brainer. ~ If Altuve can achieve all those basic groundings to the core reasons for his hitting success ~ and still also win another (4th) batting championship, to boot, we shall have no problem joining the crowd that wants to lead his cheers.

Go for it, Jose, but only as the bi-product of how your natural ability, attitude, life style, and understanding that school is never finished in the game of baseball ~ all of these things come together to help you achieve at levels that few others ever reach.

And best wishes to all of you Astros for a strong finish Saturday and Sunday in the home of the Texas Rangers.

    Who is the best player in the MLB? Bryce Harper the NL candidate is batting a paltry 228. Mike Trout the AL candidate at 300. J Altuve is by far the best player in MLB
