    Not sure if truly thread-worthy.

    Baseball America: MLB Best Tools

    This was formulated using the opinions of the 30 MLB managers.

    It was all Jose Altuve for the Astros.

    - t-2nd-best hit-and-run artist in the AL (behind Erick Aybar and tied with Michael Brantley)
    - Best baserunner in the AL (Seriously.)
    - 3rd-most exciting player (behind Mike Trout and Miguel Cabrera)

    The Minor League segments will be in the Minor League thread.

    I agree. He may not hit homeruns, but he is just as exciting to watch as Trout or Cabrera.

    The baserunning part is actually pretty funny. It feels like Altuve gets picked off third with no outs more times than any player should in their entire career.
