As you probably know, I love when baseball is featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
This week the magazine spotlights the young Houston Astros, including rookie slugger George Springer on the cover.
The Astros young squad is led by 24 year old shortstop Jose Altuve, who leads the American League in batting average, .337, and all of MLB with 105 base hits.
Springer has hit .240, with 14 home runs, 39 RBI, and 54 base hits in 59 games this season.
The Astros, in their second year in the American League, are in last place in the A.L. Central.
SI has the Astros headed out if the cellar soon, and has pegged the team as the 2017 World Series Champions.
