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, the next superstar to come to fruition for the ball club was Jose Altuve. He is the first member of the “golden age” of Astros baseball. I have talked about Future Astros Hall of Famers in a previous article, but I felt that Altuve’s verdict needed to be expanded upon further.
