QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“After the last game of the season, we did a little toast to (Astros second baseman Jose Altuve) for winning the batting title and I told him, ‘Congratulations, and you’re welcome.’ Because I gave a couple of those hits to him. So I feel like that was just my small part in donating to his batting title.”
Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander, who was dealt from Detroit at the August trade deadline. Altuve has a .563 career batting average against the former Goochland and Old Dominion standout.
