With Josh Harrison now locked in to a position (second base, once Jung Ho Kang returns), Clint Hurdle probably really wants a Mr. Everything...

Years ago my stepdad told me he feels bad for people who are angry — anger is an ugly display, a senseless expression, the avenue of the underdeveloped. It took me a while to know what he meant.
