Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve has added another award to his collection after being named the Associated Press 2017 Male Athlete of the Year. The AP announced its annual honor Wednesday (via ESPN.com). "Winning the World Series, winning the MVP, you feel like you have everything," Altuve said. "But my perspective is to try and get better every year and if we win one World Series, why not win another one? Just keep playing for the team and keep playing for my city." The Astros All-Star won the voting with 715 points, finishing ahead of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (646 points) and Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (626 points).
