The nuns get their Honus Wagner dough

5 Comments

Remember those nuns who were selling the Honus Wagner card?  Well, they got $262,000 for it.

Best part: the guys delivering the money from the sale made it all the way to Daley Plaza in time to deposit it despite the fact that they were 106 miles away, it was dark and they were wearing sunglasses when they took off.

Hit it.

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.
