Barack Obama predicts a White Sox-Nationals World Series

Barack Obama is a big White Sox fan who lives/works in Washington, D.C., so I suppose the president’s World Series prediction was sort of … well, predictable:

When asked for his World Series prediction, Mitt Romney picked* “whichever teams don’t benefit from revenue sharing.”

* That’s not actually true. And my attempts at political humor are very lame. But at least they’re also half-hearted!

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.
