I think you meant "decent"
At least if we let him go, let's do it after he has a more productive year thus raising his stock and we actually get something for him. I'm not of the mind to ever let him go... But if we do, I say that this is the way to go.
The problem is, Smitty has one year left in his contract. If we allow him to play the contract out, he is a FA next year and we get nothing for him. It is extend or trade time for Smitty in my mind
