Unfortunately, this probably deserves its own thread at this point.
Despite having the most productive (offensively) OF in the majors
The OF is a bit of a mess.
One of the biggest problems is defense. I've been pounding out digital ink abut needing a true CFer for years.
Kemp, despite decent offensive production in 2014, has been replacement level due to poor defensive metrics.
This would appear to make Ethier the every day CFer.Mattingly: Matt Kemp will start working out in LF. #Dodgers
This isn't an ideal situation as Ethier isn't a good CFer, though he may be the best CFer on the roster, and doesn't hit lefties at all. He needs a right-handed platoon partner. SVS shouldn't be playing in CF.
If Kemp starts playing LF then I don't see Crawford getting much playing time. I wouldn't imagine a platoon with Kemp and Crawford.
Interesting to see how this shakes out.
It should have been addressed in the off season.
