Astros: Will Jose Altuve be a Hall of Famer?

Let’s address the elephant in the room: is Jose Altuve a Hall of Famer? The Houston Astros have had two players inducted in the MLB Hall of Fame — Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio. Both of these occurred in recent history, and both are from the 2005 National League pennant Astros. When that era ended, […] Astros: Will Jose Altuve be a Hall of Famer? - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - Houston Astros News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Why a Juan Soto Trade Makes Sense For the Astros

The Astros are once again contenders for a World Series title, but every contender could always use an upgrade to bolster their team towards October. The Houston Astros yet again have a deep lineup one through seven with Jose Altuve, Michael Brantley, Alex Bregman, Yordan Alvarez, Yuli Gurriel, Kyle Tucker and Jeremy Peña.

Five Homer, Nine Run 2nd Inning Propels Astros to 13-4 Slaughter of the Boys from Bean Town.

Five Homer, Nine Run 2nd Inning Propels Astros to 13-4 Slaughter of the Boys from Bean Town.

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Kyle Tucker leads the onslaught with two homers and a grand slam. Nathan Eovaldi is now officially the Astros’ favorite pitcher. In 2018, while pitching for the Tampa Bay Rays, Eovaldi gave up consecutive home runs to Jose Altuve, George Springer, and Alex Bregman. Later that season Eovaldi was traded to the Boston Red Sox, and just before the Astros faced the Sox in the ALCS, Bregman trolled Eovaldi by playing a video loop of the three homers on Instagram. Eovaldi got his revenge in Game 3 of the series, but tonight the Astros got the...

The Bats Have Caught Fire In May

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports April showers apparently lead to May offensive outbursts instead of flowers. It is no secret that the Astros were off to a slow start offensively this season, with a 94 wRC+ as a lineup through the season’s first two weeks. An offense that was six percent below average. Slow starts from multiple regulars were the key culprits behind this sluggish performance. Kyle Tucker (70 wRC+) Yuli Gurriel (69 wRC+) Jose Altuve (64 wRC+) Aledmys Díaz (62 wRC+) Martín Maldonado (41 wRC+) Even with the departure of Carlos Correa accounted for,...

Astros: the Niko Goodrum days look to be over

With Niko Goodrum slumping, his time with the Astros could be over soon, while a trip to Triple-A would be the next step. The Houston Astros weren’t clear on the recovery of infielder Jose Altuve and Jeremy Peña on Saturday. With both out of the lineup, Aledmys Diaz and Niko Goodrum secured starts at shortstop […] Astros: the Niko Goodrum days look to be over - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - Houston Astros News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Astros face another hiccup in the infield

Prior to Friday’s victory over the Nationals, Astros’ second baseman Jose Altuve exited the contest early. Through the applause for manger Dusty Baker’s managerial success and Yuli Gurriel’s breakout home run and no-look catch, Houston Astros‘ second baseman Jose Altuve departed Friday early as a “precaution” and is being further evaluated, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reported.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Luis Garcia takes the mound to extend the Astros’ streak to five straight An exciting, infuriating, exhilarating game last night. The Astros bats remain dormant but with solo homers by Jose Altuve and the still phenomenal rookie, Jeremy Pena, the Astros took a 2-0 lead into the ninth inning. Astros starters have surrendered two runs in the last 24. 2 innings pitched, the two runs on a home run against Justin Verlander. Relief pitching has been terrific as well, until Ryan Pressly, just off IL, came in last night to close out the Tigers,...

Photo by Bob Levey/ A series for (2nd place?) in the AL West. Jake Odorizzi takes the mound for the Astros seeking to continue the great progress he made in his last start. He faces Marco Gonzalez, who has been rather bad against most opposition rather than the Astros, but held the Stros to one run in seven innings the last time he faced them. Jose Altuve is back in the lineup tonight. For more on this game and the series check out ckuno’s excellent analysis HERE. Here are the lineups.
