The Braves are making a pretty arrogant ticket offer

For a team that choked away a playoff spot two years ago, this is either incredibly arrogant, incredibly risky or incredibly awesome. Or maybe all three at the same time:

The lead is 13 right now, so there are your $13 outfield seats. I guess it would behoove the financially responsible among Braves fans to root for just enough Braves losses for the remainder of the season which allow for tickets of $1.  Of course, the savings would be offset by purchases of antacids and possible cardiac care.

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.
