Jose Altuve (2B) HOU - Sep. 17
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=807353

Altuve went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk against the Diamondbacks in a 4-3 win Friday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: For 5.2 frames Friday, Arizona starter Madison Bumgarner held Houston without a hit. Altuve ended the no-hit bid and gave Houston its first lead with a two-run shot to left field. The long ball extended Altuve's personal hitting streak to six games, during which he has gone 9-for-21 while scoring nine runs.

Ken Davidoff. among other reporters, got a good laugh, I'm sure.

“I didn’t see the Maldonado thing. Somebody talked about it,” Judge said Monday, the All-Star Game’s media day. “I did see, after the game, them ripping off the jersey and everything. That’s fun. He just hit a walk-off homer to win the game. That’s big time. You do whatever you want. You can celebrate. You can walk around the bases. It’s all part of the game, you know?”

All four Astros selected for this game — Altuve, Michael Brantley, Carlos Correa and Ryan Pressly — bowed out of what would have been the club’s first industry-wide platform since Major League Baseball concluded Houston illegally stole signs during its 2017 championship run.

“They’ve got their priorities. They need to heal up, get ready,” Judge said of the Astros’ players. “They’ve got family stuff, injuries, anything like that. They’re trying to play it smart and do what’s best for them and the team. That’s their choice.”

When a reporter suggested the players didn’t want to get booed, Judge smiled and replied, “You said it, not me. I’m not too sure. I’m not in their shoes.”

He's got 17 HR already and isn't stealing bases anymore. When did he become a premier power hitter with average?  His production and value is a totally different shape than it was 2012-15.

Jose Altuve (2B) HOU - Jun. 10
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=784165

Altuve went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's 12-8 loss to Boston.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Three of the second baseman's last four hits have ended up beyond the fence. Altuve is up to 11 homers, 29 RBI, 41 runs scored and two stolen bases through 51 games. He's added a .296/.364/.479 slash line. With four long balls in his last 10 games, the 31-year-old has found a groove.

Those hostile Yankee fans better watch their mouths.  A former Yankee says the Rockies and at least one other team - maybe he meant the Dodgers, maybe the Yankees - were caught cheating the same as the Astros.  But I suspect there will be a wave of former players with stories...

His bad performances in the first two games at Yankee Stadium, facing down the hostile crowds, and coming out with a very good final game performance in that series seems to have released his demons.  Altuve is now hitting like the Altuve of old, except for the steals aren't there.  

Many of his numbers are similar to last season's right now.  Despite 33 games instead of 48, His HR and RBI totals are identical. and the hit total is nearly identical in 55 fewer AB.

Ian O'Connor describing the game yesterday:

The Yankees did a lot of winning things out there Thursday, starting with Altuve’s former teammate, Gerrit Cole, who surrendered only two solo shots to Yordan Alvarez over seven quality innings. Giancarlo Stanton and Clint Frazier homered. Gio Urshela turned a single into a double with some opportunistic hustle. And Gleyber Torres turned an Aaron Hicks infield hit into a victory lap for every man, woman and child who despises the shift, delivering one of the most fascinating dashes from second to third to home you will ever see.

On almost any other day, the Yanks take this game and sweep this series. But then Altuve stepped into the box in the eighth, one out, with the crowd of 10,000 chanting “CHEA-TER … CHEA-TER,” sounding like a crowd of 40,000. They had loudly booed the Astros star from the pregame introductions, and had profanely told him in the first inning what he could do with that little birthday of his that he shares with Willie Mays.

And then Green threw his fateful four-seamer toward Altuve, a pitch, Houston manager Dusty Baker said, “that was over his head.” What pitch isn’t over Altuve’s head? He is listed at 5-foot-6, which is its own tall tale. Not that it matters. Altuve sent the ball sailing over the left-field fence, and did a purposeful jog around the bases. He crossed the plate, pointed to the sky, and then walked into a receiving line of giddy teammates outside the dugout. Baker grabbed both of his shoulders and playfully shook him...
