    Dodgers open to trading Andre Eithier

    The Dodgers made headlines this season when they signed Andre Ethier to a five-year, $85MM extension. ESPN's Buster Olney reports that now, just months later, the team is open to the concept of trading their slugging right fielder (Twitter link).

    You're thoughts? He struggled against lefties this year very badly, but still hit 20 Home Runs in the NL West with their huge ballparks. He's signed at about 15 Million per year. Is he worth the risk?

    The Dodgers brain trust must now be grasping what a huge mistake it was to take on all the Red Sox bad money.

    Pass! 31 years old in April, and can't hit lefties.

    .under .650 career vs LHPs.

    That's worse than Crawford.

    He's a glorified platoon player. Pass.

    It must be. Honestly their ownership made a huge blunder. They are filling up their team with all*stars to which most others in the past never win the World Series.

    Getting Hanley was one thing and extending Kemp was another but AGon, Crawford, Beckett ???? That is like just whacked. Diud they not see how that money and those players brought the Red Sox to its knees?

    Their payroll before any more trades, FA signings or their 1 arb case is only 6mm shy of 200mm.

    After 2014 Ethier will be making 18mm for 2015-16, then 17.5 for 2017. No thank you.

    If the Dodgers could pull off an Ethier trade they could sign Hamilton to an AGonand Kemp type contract--pretty strong lineup:

    Crawford, Kemp, AGon and Hamilton--then build around them. The City of LA might allow Hamilton to blend in to the limelight and become just another star--no big deal.

    The $17 M ave. for Ethier is pretty steep---perhaps the Dodgers would include another good prospect or cash to make it work. I'm sure they would want Lester in return???

    Might be a good time to move Lester and pick up someone of comparable value--Sanchez, Marcum, Floyd, etc.

    Re: Dodgers open to trading Andre Eithier

    I continue to be amazed at some of these contracts and extensions.  He's not eve a 3-win player in average.  If you were to sign him today, for one year, maybe $12M might be appropriate.  He'll be a 2-win player by the time his contract is over, making $17M on average.  He is a slightly better version of Cody Ross, and i wouldn't give Ross 1/3 of what Ethier is making.

    With all those big contracts why not just give him away.  Not worth 15 mil over five years.

    If Either didnt try to sign a contract extension, I would hope that Boston to go after him hard and sign him a 3yrs/33mm contract.  

    But now he already signed an extension.  Too late to take him!!

    Unless the Dodgers is willing to eat up some of his salary!!

    Reasonable.  Probably too much, but at a minimum, he'd have made a great platoon partner with Ross.  Now all the LAD GM has to do is to eat maybe $20-30M and explain to his boss how this happened to a player whose extension hasn't even started.

    Certainly not worth 14.5M, but a glorified platoon player? Hardly. Look how many years Papi had trouble with LHP. Eithier also is GG OFer, something Drew didn't have, and the Sox paid him nearly as much.

    Eithier is certainly better than what we have now. We could move Ross to LF, where he should be playing anyway.

    Re: Dodgers open to trading Andre Eithier

    pretty sure eithier and pedey are good friends too. i like eithier, hes not slump prone and swings the bat well. plays good defense. but at that price tag  i would pass. if the dodgers would be willing to eat part of his contract then i would be all for it

    Re: Dodgers open to trading Andre Eithier

    Either has too big of a contract to trade anything for him at this point.  The Red Sox just dug out from some very similar contract and there is no need (or sense) to adding another such contract.

    Ross is a butcher in RF.

    Why Ethier? Overpaid, underproducing player, who will be 31 years oldin April.

    A good fielder, friends with Pede and kills RH pitching which we face most.  Better ballplayer than Ross in my opinion but more expensive.
