The Altuve will become a standard unit of measurement.  New cars will have their "Altuves per gallon" rating posted on the side window.

Isn't the Pedroia a similar, but perhaps more northeast-regional measure?

Indeed, the Pedroia is worth 1.03 Altuves.

That may be an inflated value. Then again, they both may be inflated values.

Four game series, last game tomorrow, although it feels like we've been playing them for a week.
