    Dansby pulled from Gwinnett game in 3rd inning after RBI DBL in 1st. That quick move is definitely Camargo related. Camargo to have MRI tonight and evaluation will be made after MRI.

And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings......

And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
