Jim Leyland explains to reporters he is not a 'genius'

Albert Einstein was a genius. Jim Leyland was called one on Tuesday, but rejected the notion.

Really? Let's take a quick look at their careers.

Einstein was awarded one Nobel Prize in Physics. Leyland has won the Manager of the Year Award ... three times.

Einstein developed the general theory of relativity. Leyland has doppelgangers.

Einstein published more than 300 scientific papers. Leyland plays golf on baseball fields.

So, is the Tigers manager a genius? Maybe not. But he's definitely ... something.
