Wow. Credit to Altuve for being able to laugh this one off. What an absolute let down. Look, I would be so excited if I hit for the cycle in my co-ed softball league. I would be even more annoyed if I tripped rounding second as I attempted to seal the cycle with a triple. However, Jose Altuve just laughs it off. I don’t know what’s better, the shot of Altuve laughing before he hits the ground or the shot of Springer and Gomez looking dumbfounded in the dugout. The Astros have had their struggles this year, but they’re obviously still having fun out there. Don’t count them out, either. The Rangers are a powerhouse, but the Astros could still make a push for the wild card.
How can you not love this guy?
