Put on some Marty Robbins, close your eyes and dream of the old West - let the bitterness flow out of you and enjoy the rest of the evening.  Let me recommend:

Some fine songs on that album.  Its road trip music for us.   The Master's Call is one of the most bizarre things you'll hear.

My 5 year old grandson LOVES Marty Robbins.   His 2 faves are The Strawberry Roan and Big Iron.  I'm kinda partial to 160 acres.

well heck, the pitching tonight was only half bad. Soto and Ramirez might be able to steal maybe one of each three or four games they work.

Bizarre?  Aren't lightning storms and cattle stampedes where most people get religion?

Cows being slaughtered by the hundred seems like an efficient means of producing an impression on thieving cattle rustlers.

Ramirez verged on impressive, especially when he kept his cool in the midst of defensive butchery.

He’s really fallen off.  Kind of a shame to see it happening.

So, Cabrera takes over at 3B?

Harold.  Let Willi keep working on his game in Toledo.

My guess is Harrison moves to 3B and Lugo plays 2B. RonRod sticks at SS until Mercer gets back, and then Lugo probably heads back to Toledo and RonRod shifts to 3B with JoHa back to 2B.

I suspect Lugo at 3B and Harrison stays at 2B.  Lugo has played mostly 3B this season in Toledo.

That works, too.

With Candelario gone what remains is  pretty much a mix and match IF. Beckham can play the left side, though his arm is substandard, RR can go anywhere and be marginal. I think I'd play RR at 3rd as much as possible just to cut down his chances. He has a fine arm but he's not really an adequate glove at SS.

That seems more likely.  Harrison has played considerably more second than third in his career, and he played only four innings at third last season and hasn't played there at all this year.
