The Orioles are coming in to Detroit to play the Tigers this evening. Jim Leyland was asked about Orioles star Manny Machado. Leyland’s take:
Quote of the year, from Leyland: “Machado leads the league in doubles. I’m second in doubles — double vodkas, double scotches … ”

Second behind Machado in hitting doubles is Gerardo Parra with 23. That means that Leyland has between 24 and 31 of his own doubles. Jose Valverde has 19 appearances this year. Yeah, I’d figure about one and a half double scotches per Valverde appearance if I was his manager too.
