  1. I’m surprised there was no contract extension.  I guess Ethier is gone in 2013.

      I’m not. He is coming off two injuries and a down season. With new ownership in the wings it’s difficult to predict the future, but I’d guess that if he rebounds this season he could become trade bait in July. If he doesn’t, then an extension would have been a mistake. I haven’t heard his agent say that he wouldn’t talk about an extension during the season.

      He’s not gone in 2013. He is a very good player and will again demonstrate his worth. Among new ownership’s first order of business will be to extend Ethier and Kershaw.

    IIm surprised he wasn’t traded. After a long time being under rated, he’s now over rated. Doubt ges worth the $11MM this year…

      Hardly. If the Dodgers traded him this winter it would definitely be trading low.
