Ethier, Zack Lee, Dee Gordon. That would be tempting. Top prospect young SS and a proven RF & future DH.Quote:

Maybe if we ate a ton of Dre's salary and added more prospects it becomes more feasible. The problem is that prospect package would likely have to include Seagar, Puig, Pederson, or some combination of them.
Unless we're seriously replacing Dre with a better bat, it just makes more sense to keep him and sign a Peavy or Kuroda in free agency.
I'm not saying I want him traded, I'm just pointing out the reason why it would be considered.
I thought if you lost a player through free agency that there were no more compensation draft picks. I'm not sure where I heard that, did anyone else hear this?
Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com was told by a source that a trade of Andre Ethier is "not happening."ESPN's Buster Olney reported Monday that the Dodgers are "open to the idea" of trading Ethier this offseason, but Heyman writes that the report was shot down by two people familiar with the team's thinking. Ethier just signed an extension with the Dodgers in June which will pay him $85 million over the next five seasons. Many believed that the contract was a reach in the first place, so if the Dodgers are legitimately looking for a match, they would likely have to pick up some of the tab or take back a similarly questionable contract.
Trade Ethier and a prospect or two for Shields, then have Puig play the OF, and sign Grienke
Note: I would try to trade Bills as well
How can you trade your only healthy outfielder when the 2/3 of your outfield is not sure to be healthy for opening day. There is something I don't understand that thread. OF of Hairston/Gwynn jr/Punto ? Impressive isn't it ?
