Real or not? Jose Altuve could be MVP again

Some wrote off Jose Altuve as one of the game's best players after a sluggish second half last season. Those folks might want to reconsider.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Jose Altuve gives the Astros a 4-2 lead in the fifth with a long home run over the train tracks, his second of the game off James Paxton, fifth of the season and fourth career multi-homer game. Altuve's numbers took a dive in the second half last season when he played through a knee issue (he was hitting .342 through the end of June but finished at .316), but so far he's swinging like MVP Altuve.
