Is Jose Altuve Having the Best Season Ever for a Player of His Size?

As Joba Chamberlain said to the state trooper arresting him for DUI:  “[Yogi] might not be as tall as the front of your car.

The best seasons ever by short guys, as ranked by a short guy.

Getting Jose Altuve out a daily dilemma for pitchers - Houston Chronicle

He’s a freak.

“The No. 1 thing is you can’t really strike him out, so that eliminates a lot of outs,” Greinke said. “And he can kind of hit anything.

“It’s weird. It’s not like he has some super strength where if you make a mistake he crushes it. It’s just no matter what you do, he’s probably going to bat close to .300. And if you leave it over the middle, it would probably be closer to .350.”

The latter is roughly where Altuve’s batting average will sit entering this week’s All-Star break. The four-time All-Star is batting an American League-best .343. His multi-hit games (35) nearly double his hitless ones (20).
