Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts on ESPN.com wrote a great piece today about all the truth-stretching surrounding the Dodgers this season, from the owners and front office to the manager and media:
Jon Weisman: The 2010 Dodgers and the reinvention of lying
Not surprisingly given what I wrote regarding Manny Ramirez earlier this week, here’s my favorite excerpt: “And then there are the media columnists who will bend and even break the truth to suit the stories they are determined to write, heedless of the facts.”

The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
