10. Jose Altuve

The Houston Astros  would become one an ellite team in Major League Baseball in the 2010's and the biggest reason was beacise of the small in stature yet hug in talent, Jose Altuve.

Altiuve would becoe an All Star in 2012 and secured himself as a bona fide htting machine.  After an "off season" in 2013, he was an All Star again in 2014 and went on an incredible hitting tear where he not only exceeded the 200 Hit mark but would lead the American League in that statistic.  ALtuve would win the Batting Title three times in that time frame and more importantly in 2017 he would win the MVP and lead the Astros to the World Series Title.  

Altuve is still with Houston a of this writing and could beocme the greatest Astro ever if he continues at this pace.

Awards = HOF? Part Twenty-Five: Gold Glove Second Base

We here at thought it would be fun to take a look at the major awards in North American team sports and see how it translates into Hall of Fame potential.

Needless to say, different awards in different sports yield hall of fame potential.  In basketball, the team sport with the least amount of players on a roster, the dividend for greatness much higher.  In baseball, it is not as much as a great individual season does not have the same impact.

We are now taking a look at the Gold Glove Award, given annually to the best defensive player in MLB in each respective position.
