Another year, another bus trip

From the "this guy is still around? Really?" file:

The Phillies sent down non-roster spring training invitee Mark Smith yesterday.

Smith was the Orioles' wasted first round pick in 1991, managed just a couple of hundred ABs with the Orioles over six years, and has bounced around ever since, from Pittsburgh to Florida to Montreal to Milwaukee, with a stop in Japan in between, never managing more than 200 ABs in a season at the major league level, but somehow lasting almost a decade even so. On the other hand, he does have a claim to fame that few more talented players will ever match: saving a person's life. I'd like to see Derek Jeter do that.
