Ftr I meant Rex has not been committed to Sanchez this off season. Yea he was way too much at times in the past. I don't think he's that much of an idiot to be so now. To the contrary I think he put Sanchez in there in hopes Sanchez could show he definintely clearly beyond question should start against TB, to give Rex cover for the decision that was otherwise going to be made anyway until Sanchez got hurt.
It backfired on him, but Smith is not ready anyway.
