Wonder is Altuve needs another surgery or rest? Maybe the plan is to get to the all star break with hopefully a decent lead, give him a long dl break. Diaz or furrier to 2nd on the regular. Yordan or tucker ****er up for an extended look?
Read above, he just needs to keep on getting ABs. He's on pace to hit 40 bombs! He has 4 doubles in his last 5 games!

Why the eff is everyone so desperate to put him on the DL?


I think we're overselling the 40 bombs pace thing. He's on pace to have his worst year since 2015 which is still pretty good, just not as great as he's been. He's drastically changed from a high hit, high average type to a typical slugger who pulls everything and puts it in the air. I'm not sure that is going to work for him longer term. But I think he'll get things going how we expected. It's just going to take time.
No, he's not going to end up with 40 bombs, but he's also not going to end up hitting .240 - that's the point I'm trying to make. I'd be worried if he was hitting .240 with no power. I don't disagree with anything you wrote, but at the same time I don't think the natural decline of a hitter as he ages is cause for the DL.

To me, this suggests MLB balls are definitely juiced.

Last weekend, Lehigh Valley beat Rochester 20-18 in 10 innings in a game that saw the two teams combine for 15 home runs. Last April, the two teams each had 19 home runs in the entire month of April.
15 home runs in a baseball game, holy sheet.

Forget the words, look at the numbers. Consider that the only thing that has increased is HR (not runs, not hits, not avg), same as at the MLB level.
