The whole situation is just reeks of inept and really just part of a crappy season all the way around.
Ineptitude is right. How does Rick Smith not know Reed is considering surgery? Didn't they ask him if he was considering going under the knife in the off-season? They didn't watch his film and suspect some kind of issue?
