So I would just like to put on the record that I have been a fan of Altuve since 2011, when I got this cool autograph.
Altuve is having a hell of a season. Up until this year he was a great hitter, with great defense..and had the hardware to prove it (3 x All-Star Games, 2 x Gold Glove and a Silver Slugger). This season he is doing more of the same, but has added power to his tools. He is getting on base at a career high clip (.421), and already has 10 HR, which is 2/3 of career high (15, in 2015).
The icing on the cake is that he has 18 SB–which leads the league–and only caught twice.
So now, pretty much, he is the best thing ever.
