4 opposing MLB players that Texas Rangers fans love to hate
By Seth Carlson
#4- Jose Altuve
It feels like Jose Altuve is universally disliked across the league, especially with Yankees fans, but much like his double play partner (soon to be former?) Carlos Correa, Altuve has done his fair share of Rangers killing.
The 31-year-old second baseman is quite literally the definition of a little pest, standing at five foot-six inches and very effective at spraying the baseball all over the field. That makes it easy for Rangers fans to jeer at him.
Is anyone else wondering what was under that jersey on that walk-off home run during the 2019 ALCS against Aroldis Chapman and the Yankees? Not that it really matters since the Astros didn’t win that year’s World Series (thank you, Nats!).
Altuve has been around a while, since 2011. And in that time, he’s capitalized on his opportunities facing the Texas Rangers, posting a career .842 OPS in 685 plate appearances against them. It doesn’t look like he’s leaving anytime soon, either, which means he’ll continue to be hated by Rangers fans for years to come.
