Where Altuve sits among all-time Houston sports heroes

Jose Altuve sent shock waves through Houston over the weekend with his walk-off home run that has the Astros returning to the World Series for the second time in three years.

Altuve has certainly become a fan favorite in Houston, but has he surpassed Hakeem Olajuwon and Earl Campbell when it comes to all-time greats in Houston sports?

ESPN 97.5's Charlie Pallilo shares his thoughts on where Altuve ranks among the greatest athletes in Houston sports history.

The Astros have now lost five straight games and the starting pitching and bullpen have let them down over that stretch. Cristian Javier was recently demoted to help him build up his stamina so that he can pitch deeper in games as the team's 5th starter when the schedule demands a 5-man starting rotation. But in the meantime, the Astros could desperately use his help out of the bullpen, and he's likely headed for relief duty when Framber Valdez returns from injury anyway. So this begs the question, is a role as the team's fifth starter the best way to maximize Javier's abilities? Check out the video to find out.
