In McTaggart's Notes section, (anyone else worried that the cuts at the Chronicle may be impacting JJO?) we read that Jason Smith may have gained a slight edge on account of some nice defensive plays he made yesterday and is taking advantage of Maysonet's shagging accident.
“It was the first game in quite a while he hadn’t gotten any hits, but he made some real nice defensive plays,” Cecil Cooper said. “It gives (Smith) a little bit of an edge. We’re hoping to get (Maysonet) on the field, if not (today) then the next day, and that will give him three or four more days to make his statement.”
Still think Smith breaks camp as IF5 - and will become more likely if Lance misses time.
