Jose Altuve Crushes The Backstreet Boys “I Want It That Way”

The Houston Astros are one of the hottest teams in baseball. After a putrid start they have completely turned around their season and now sit just 4.5 game back of the Rangers for first place in the AL West and 1.5 games back of the second wild card. Thanks to the upswing, the Astros are feeling really loose as they look toward their second consecutive postseason appearance. The feeling is so easy going inside the Astros clubhouse, that before yesterday's games against the Athletics the Stros' interrupted their card game for a little Backstreet Boys karaoke.

Who knew that Jose Altuve was such a huge fan of Nick Carter and co? Last night's starter, Mike Fiers, was trying to get into it but nobody could match the passion of Altuve. Somehow despite the good karma that the Backstreet Boys normally bring, the Astros would go on to lose to the A's last night, 7-4. It wasn't Altuve's fault though. He was 2-4 and stole his 25th base of the season. He also leads the American League in batting average at .348.
Perhaps tonight, the Astros will try N'Sync instead.
