NL West Notes: Ethier, Lincecum

Dodgers left-hander Sandy Koufax struck out 18 Cubs on this date in 1962, tying Bob Feller for a share of what was then the single game strikeout record. Here are today's links from the NL West…

  • Dodgers GM Ned Colletti said he’s "always been inclined to keep" Andre Ethier, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reports. Agent Nez Balelo has said his client is open to discussing a long-term contract during the season, assuming the incoming ownership group takes over the team at the end of the month. Colletti said yesterday that he has already talked to the team's new owners about an extension for Ethier.
  • Scouts wonder if Tim Lincecum’s right hip is bothering him, but the Giants right-hander told Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports that, “none of that is true.” Though Lincecum is off to a slow start, he prefers to focus on the positives. “We get caught up in negatives so much and so easily, especially with so many games,” he said. Lincecum is under contract through 2013, and remains a candidate for a longer-term deal.

      All guys pretty much look to cover for a huge pay day imagine.. koufax would probably swear he didn’t have arthritis if he was pitching also…

    Tim’s mechanics are so specific that when they go out of whack, they go WAY out.
    Part of his problem is he tries to correct things on his own.  He really needs to get his dad out to be his personal coach. In the past, his dad has always been able to correct what is wrong.

    Wonder what sort of extension Ethier nets…

    Maybe 5/75?

       I’m sure he’ll get a 100 mill offer.  The way the contracts have gone up the past couple seasons.  Nats blew it by giving Werth that 7/126!
