    Ethier has been the Dodgers most clutch player the last couple of years. He has had quite a few walk off hits and home runs to win games and his defense isnt to shabby... I would be loyal to Ethier and trade away Crawford if its even possible...
    L.A Dodgers, Raiders, Lakers and Trojan football...

    I have been saying this for a few years.....in my opinion, Andre is overrated.

    Yes he came up with some late inning heroics a few years ago with some walk offs, but overall, I think he is overrated and the Dodgers grossly over paid...they were afraid some other team would sign him as a FA.

    He has not been clutch at all the last few years, and I think we can all agree he has regressed against lefties big time. I can't tell you how many times he swings at pitches in the right handed batters box down and away and does that little pirouette spin that makes me throw my remote across the room.

    He is 30, and if you are going to trade him, you do it now while he has some value.

    He's the best hitter we have outside of Kemp and maybe A-Gon. I wouldn't do it. The only knock on him is that he's brutal vs. LHP. But he destroys RHP, nonetheless.

    Giving Hamilton more than a 3 year deal is trouble and he probably won't sign for less than 5.

    I am just a firm believer of a year too early rather than a year too late

    Here's his splits year-by-year vs. LHP

    2006: .351/.378/.468 in 82 PA's
    2007: .279/.319/.396 in 119 PA's
    2008: .243/.325/.368 in 155 PA's
    2009: .194/.283/.345 in 187 PA's
    2010: .233/.292/.333 in 178 PA's
    2011: .220/.258/.305 in 151 PA's
    2012: .222/.276/.330 in 239 PA's

    Overall career vs LHP: .238/.296/.352 (garbage)
    Overall career vs. RHP: .311/.387/.526 (all-star)

    Future Hall of Shamers:

    I wouldn't trade him yet. Maybe next year. I'd try to move Crawford first and at least make sure Puig or Pederson are going to be ready. Those guys could still be 2-3 years away.

    Totally agree!!!

    2013 OF should be Crawford, Kemp, Ethier and Gwynn Jr (4th)

    2014 and beyond - work on trading Crawford to rid ourselves of his contract and make room for Joc and Puig.


    A Real American HERO !!!

    u cant trade ethier until you know what u have in pedersen and puig.

    theres guys that hit at the minor league level and then are awful at the ML level.

    until we find IF puig and pedersen are LEGIT thats when u can push ethier out so one of them can take his place.

    its too early to trade him IMO

    what the hell was the point of giving him that big *** contract? we could have let him walk and just took the draft picks?
