Astros review: Grading George Springer’s 2018 season

One of the Astros’ best players, George Springer had another productive season in 2018. When one thinks of the professional baseball club based in Houston, Texas, they’d likely think of the ‘core four’ of Springer, Carlos Correa, Jose Altuve, and Alex Bregman. The only outfielder of that group, the 29-year old slugger, was again a […] Astros review: Grading George Springer’s 2018 season - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - A Houston Astros Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa are Heroes.

Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa are Heroes.

Carlos Correa played 2018 with a deviated septum, inhibiting his breathing. It is said too often of grown men who happen to be good at playing kids’ games that they are heroes. Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa are heroes. The essence of heroism is the willingness to undergo pain or sacrifice for the good of others. We all saw the hobbled Jose Altuve last Fall, at times suppressing agony, walking with a pained limp, and yet on the field making making maximum effort, even running with his usual haste to transform routine ground outs into infield hits. And then he’d limp...Again. As manager...

Astros Review: Grading Jose Altuve’s 2018 season

In this first installment of the Astros player 2018 review, we will cover second baseman Jose Altuve and how he performed this year. Following a phenomenal 2017 season — 7.6 fWAR, 160 wRC+ — with a World Series title and the AL MVP, it was always difficult to see how Jose Altuve would top that […] Astros Review: Grading Jose Altuve’s 2018 season - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - A Houston Astros Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Taking a Knee for Altuve

Taking a Knee for Altuve

I wanted to take a second to appreciate Jose Altuve. I’ve done a few “appreciation” articles, but honestly this one is a whole different level. I am not going to bore you with exactly how great Altuve is. On a team filled with stars such as Bregman, Correa, Springer, Verlander, Cole, etc - Jose Altuve stands head and shoulders above the rest - which says a lot for a guy who is one of the shortest in baseball. But this article is not about Altuve’s stats, his MVP, him being the hits leader over the past few years etc ... it is about him being the heart and soul of this team. While...

Astros’ star Jose Altuve has right knee surgery

While the Astros were only eliminated from the postseason on Thursday night, one of their stars didn’t waste time in addressing a bothersome injury. It’s no secret that a right knee injury hampered Jose Altuve since a game in Colorado on July 25th. A consequence of a slide into second base at Coors Park, the […] Astros’ star Jose Altuve has right knee surgery - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - A Houston Astros Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Red Sox notebook: Fans interfere, deny Mookie Betts catch on Jose Altuve blast

HOUSTON — Mookie Betts looked like he was about to make one of the best catches in recent playoff memory.Then a fan got in the way.The Red Sox led the Astros 2-0 in the bottom of the first inning in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series last night when controversy erupted. With a man on, Jose Altuve jumped on a 2-1 fastball from Rick Porcello and drove it to right, where it looked to have just enough distance to become a game-tying home run.But Betts jumped high above the wall in an attempt to rob it. And just as the ball was about to reach his glove, a fan in the front...
