Personally, I'm not at all upset about Smith's loss. He was nothing short of horrific defensively and offensively, albeit in limited duty. He's always been a journeyman spare part, a strict backup meant to be implemented for short periods of time. Protecting him on the 40-man roster over former #1 draft pick Chris Lubanski still frustrates me, although in retrospect the move only costs us a small fraction of Smith's Major League-guaranteed $600K salary.
However, this question remains: Who will be our backup shortstop?
