Even if you despise the Houston Astros and all they stand for, it's pretty impossible to not appreciate Jose Altuve.

The pint-sized second baseman isn't even on the uphill side of 5 feet tall, but he can absolutely rake at the plate, and it's pretty darn fun to watch. Rangers fans will get a snoot full of Altuve this week and hope he doesn't hurt them too badly.

Altuve enters the first series against the in-state rival Rangers fresh off sharing AL Player of the Week honors with Baltimore Orioles slugger Mark Trumbo.
