In a stroke of pure Buck Showalter genius, Manny Machado batted out of the leadoff spot in the Baltimore Orioles’ lineup last night in their 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Machado went 0-for-3, but did score a run after a walk. Showalter has made a habit of using players in his leadoff slot who do not possess the typical top-of-the-order speed like Nick Markakis for most of...
