Hold on has Jose Altuve become another M

There will be no height jokes in this column. We need to take Jose Altuve more seriously. Were talking about po sible-best-player-in-baseball seriously.Mike Trout has seemingly held that mantle for the last five seasons thanks to his stellar production acro s all statistical measures offensively, defensively and on the basepaths.He may have a challenger, who happens to share his jersey number.MORE: Carlos Carrasco Jersey MLB trade deadline winners and losers In 2014 Altuve quietly became just the 6th different player since 1900 to reach at least 225 hits and 50 steals in a season. Flash forward and hes now on pace to lead the American League in hits for the third straight year while also adding a new wrinkle to his game legitimate power.So if youre talking about elite well-roundedne s right now, look no further than the 26-year-old second baseman. Altuve is currently on pace to do what virtually no one in MLB history including Trout has done in a season notch at least 25 homers, 30 stolen bases and a .350 average. The only time weve seen this was Larry Walkers MVP season in 1997, playing at the height of the steroids era and in even more juiced up Coors Field. And if you want to push the steals cut-off to 35, then Altuve could be the first ever to hit those numbers.MORE: Ranking the top 50 players in baseball Over the last three seasons combined, Altuve ranks third in Edwin Encarnacion Jersey the Baseball Reference's all-encompa sing cumulative stat wins above replacement (WAR) . The only two players ahead of him are the previous two American League MVPs, Trout and Josh Donaldson. Trout has pretty much been anointed the modern God of War amongst fans of this stat, posting off-the-charts totals thus far in his career that crush anyone in todays game.Altuve is getting there.Trout (6.8) and Altuve (6.3) are the only players in the league to have a WAR over six thus far in 2016. Theyre both on pace to surpa s 9.5, which would put them with Albert Pujols (2009), Bryce Harper (2015) and 2012 Trout as the only players in the last 10 years to do so.Manyof the 2016 stats for the two No 27's are nearly identical including homers, RBI, doubles and OBP. Theyve both played in all their teams games, joining just four others to appear in Jim Thome Cool Base White Jersey at least 107so far.One of the more compelling similaritiescomes in the stat Weighted Runs Created Plus (wRC+) an insightful metric that measures the amount of runs a hitter contributes to his team compared to league average which sits at 167 for Trout and 166 for Altuve, each top-3 in the league along with Daniel Murphy.With the glove you can find some more remarkable symmetry between the two. The Ultimate Zone Rating an estimate of how many runs a players defensive performance saves or costs his team stands at exactly +1.8 Cody Allen Jersey for both players, meaning theyre both 1.8 runs better than the average player at their position. And sure enough they've committed four errors.But look a little more and youll see Trout eating Altuves dust in several other key categories such as OPS, batting average, steals and total bases and the fact that the center fielder strikes out nearly twice as much. In the golden age of Ks,Altuve is the only one in the league with over 450 plate appearances(33 total players) and fewer than 50 strikeouts.Altuves third-ranked Weighted On-Base Average (wOBA) of .418 another effective stat which estimates a players overall offensive contribution based on an a signed value to each distinct type of hit would be better than any of Trouts full seasons except one.No doubt Altuve will have to display a little more longevity to hold court amongst the games true elite few. But this head-to-head comparison is even more impre sive from considering Danny Salazar Jersey Trout is having his best all-around statistical performance since his first full season in 2012. And when you look at Altuves aforementioned parallels with the hardware-winning years of 97 Walker, Trout and Josh Donaldson, can you really make an argument against him being the 2016 AL MVP?At the very least, give Altuve that trophy now. And if youre feeling a little feisty, you may want to start wondering if hes better than Mike Trout.
