Let him enjoy the ride. He's probably too young to know the game is rigged for small market teams never to win on a consistent basis.




Good thing about him being young is he may still be around when they win again. Hopefully, for their fans they can win every 55 years.

Altuve winning this years MVP race was the first for an Astros player, but definitely won't be the last.  Carlos Correa actually is the Astro wil the most upside potential and he's only 23 years old. Alex Bregman just started to realize his potential this year and is virtually a younger version of Altuve and Kyle Tucker is a slugging outfielder who's coming up quickly through the minors and should be available for the AAA callups next September.   Better get used to seeing these Stros piling up the post season awards, they are truly stacked and prepared to dominate for years to come.



Maybe if Didi ever starts to decline, we'll help ourselves to Correa once he hits FA.  Teams like the Dodgers, Red Sox and Yankees will pick that roster apart before too long.

Bregman isn't Altuve. Not yet, anyway.


Tucker is a good prospect, but hasn't shown command of the strike zone above the A-ball level yet.


The Astros aren't going to "dominate for years to come". There are too many good organizations, too many other loaded teams. If you're expecting them to repeat what the Yankees did from 1996 through 2001 (5 pennants and 4 titles) well, I wouldn't bet the ranch on that.

I would prefer the Yankees stay away from arrogant guys like Correa and Altuve, but some other team will definitely sign most of Houston's talent away.

On some level, the ability to trade players erodes the whole notion of team spirit and working over time together toward a goal.  One minute a guy is a Yankee; the next moment he is a Cleveland Indian doing his best to strike out Yankees (and doing a pretty good job of it, too).  This pattern is repeated over and over.  How can a player truly have team spirit when he knows that at any moment, he can be traded away like a piece of chattel or some widget on an assembly line.  The fans are loyal enough but from the perspective of the players, it is best not to get too attached.  One never knows what tomorrow will bring.  They all mouth off in public interviews about the "team" and show the requisite amount of "team spirit" but in the end, they all know their stay in any one place is tenuous at best.  The whole system - including after they become free agents - fosters an "every man for himself" mindset
