The New York Yankees just recently played the Houston Astros and Jose Altuve continued to be one of the better players in all of baseball against them. He's played well against the Yankees throughout his career and that's not going to change anytime soon from the looks of things.

Current MLB network analyst Xavier Scruggs talks about what the Yankees could do in order to get under Jose Altuve's skin a bit more.

What Did Scruggs Say?

Xavier Scruggs noticed that all Yankees fans do is boo him whenever he comes up to the plate. His new idea might not be a bad one to change it up a bit.

"I thought Yankees fans were supposed to be smart. Now I realize they're truly insane. Because you know what the definition of insanity is? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. This man does not take it easy on the Yankees whatsoever. Buzzer or no buzzers, trash can or no trash can. He has a career .816 OPS and .293 batting average versus the Yankees... The next time Altuve comes up to the plate and you feel the urge to stand up and boo, sit down and be completely silent."

It's Actually Not A Bad Idea From Scruggs

Although even being silent probably won't help Jose Altuve get out, if you are a Yankees fan, maybe just throwing him off a little bit could bother him for the first few times. He's one of the best hitters in baseball, so getting underneath his skin isn't going to be easy. With the whole cheating scandal, he's had to hear from everybody, so Yankees fans booing him isn't necessarily going to bother him too much.

Altuve Is Having Another Elite Season

Jose Altuve has continued to be one of the best players in all of baseball this season. He's currently hitting .272 and has belted 15 home runs. The 32-year-old has been one of the better hitters in all of baseball throughout the past few years and he's been a major reason why the Astros have found a ton of success.

Astros Are Very Good Still

If the last few games for the Houston Astros have proved anything to people around the league, the Astros are once again one of the better teams in baseball. They played very well against the New York Yankees and just came away with a 9-1 win against the New York Mets in the first game of a two-game series.
