Here's some bonus C/T coverage as you settle into your weekend:
• Breaking news from Yahoo's Tim Brown: the Dodgers have decided to fill their problem at third base by acquiring Casey Blake. The Indians get a pair of minor leaguers (pitcher Jon Meloan and catcher Carlos Santana - no, not *that* Carlos Santana), and some undisclosed cash, which is always nice.
Blake wasn't hitting a lick in the first third of the season, but he's turned things around nicely since June 1 (.352/.417/.558, seven homers). The NL environment takes his value down a speck, but the Dodgers certainly didn't acquire him to sit him; he'll play everyday, while the disappointing Andy LaRoche and Blake DeWitt head to the bench. The biggest fans of this move are NL-only players, who get another piece to bid on. Blake remains a fringe option at best in most mixed leagues.
• The rotten luck in Toronto continues, as the Blue Jays have accepted that Dustin McGowan won't pitch again this year. He'll have season-ending labrum surgery in the next few days.
