Members of the national media changing their tune on Astros' Jose Altuve

ABOUT-FACE ON ALTUVE

Jose Altuve dealt with a lot of shrapnel in the wake of the Astros sign stealing scandal. Especially after being wrongfully accused of wearing a buzzer underneath his jersey by a prominent Yankees fan on Twitter.

It's unfortunate. Because if we're to believe his teammates, he didn't partake in the scandal. National baseball media didn't really do any digging on the matter. It played out. And after Altuve struggled during a pandemic shortened 2020 season, many felt his career production had an asterisk next to it.

But Altuve has crushed it the past two seasons, and especially this year. It led to a complimentary tweet from ESPN's Buster Olney that listed his accomplishments... and upset some Astros fans.

Check out the video above to find out why.
