When the World Series champions return an almost identical lineup in the following season, you know you have problems, especially when the reigning MVP is in that lineup. 


Luckily for the Houston Astros, they are that team, and ​Jose Altuve is the reigning MVP


Altuve, who is not necessarily known for his size, is definitely capable of ​putting the ball over the wall and he reminded us of that with his first homer of the Spring. 

The five-time All-Star has been just one home run short of Eric Hosmer in each of the past two seasons. 


Judging by the video, he has opposite-field power too. 


Houston is in a very good position to make another World Series run. They are arguably the best team in the American League, especially after trading for Gerrit Cole. 


Everybody else in the AL should probably just pack their bags and run for the hills because Houston is going to bring it again in 2018.
