Settling the Score: Wednesday’s results

42 Comments

Yes, it’s a copout doing a Settling the Score instead of an And That Happened on a weekday. But (a) I was out late cruising the mean streets of Stamford, Connecticut, living to the fullest, sucking the marrow out of life and blah, blah blah last night; (b)  I’m travelling this morning and, as you read this, I’m being felt up by Homeland Security and stuff; and (c) nothing can top the stuff we already wrote about King Felix’s perfect game, so it’s all good.

Anyway: I’ll be back at the fortified compound by lunchtime today, so until then talk amongst yourselves about last night’s scores.  If you really miss ATH, put a cheap movie reference and some quasi-geeky Batman/Battlestar Galactica snark in the comments to make it seem like I never left you.

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.
