Jimmy Smith signs 1 year extension for 2021 worth up to $5m


Recommended Posts

Smith on the field is worth every cent of that 5 Million. Veteran leadership and great presence for guys like Marlon who are coming into their own. Also might be insurance on our decision looming around the slot spot for Tavon Young. I don’t believe we can cut him and gain much cap per his contract, but could be incorrect. 

I have no issues with this deal, even if we get 10-12 complete games next year. Just hope we also draft a guy or two mid rounds for depth and not be forced to watch what we have this second half of the year.

Averett's injury is really what caused so much chaos. We know we're likely going to lose one or both of Tavon and Jimmy to an injury, so that leaves us with Marlo/Peters/depth, which is usually fine but when Averett went down and then all the other dudes went down/sucked beyond belief (Bonds, etc.), we really hurt.

Exactly why we still need to try and draft depth. Averett’s game is still growing. I think he can be a solid contributor. Doubt he ever reaches Marlon level, but solid slot fill in outside man CB looks up his alley. Tavon is the WC of the bunch. I’d prefer us to draft as if he isn’t even on the team, then when he is healthy its just an added bonus.
