Res Ipsa Loquitur! ~ The Thing Speaks for Itself!

For the first substantive counting period in the early season, Jose Altuve has taken his accustomed seat in the MLB BA Game of Thrones. Propelled by a 3 hits for 4 at bats night against Tampa Bay on Monday, Altuve now rests tonight at .342,  atop an old familiar listening chair to other echoes of news that 1.5 plus million fan votes as second baseman for the AL have now been cast for him in this year’s July All Star Game.
