Ethier might have eye on Boston

File this one squarely in the category of "rumors," subcategory "theoretical," but one report says Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier told friends he'd welcome a trade to Boston.
Even if he did say that, as reported by CSNNE.com, it doesn't really make any difference, because he has no say in the matter. He can't become a free agent until 2013 and has a contract for next year. The Dodgers and Red Sox are both expected to be active in the trade market this winter, and maybe Ned Coletti and Theo Epstein can take comfort in the idea that Ethier would approve of such a trade.
Asked about the report by Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, Ethier said "I don't think it makes any sense to comment on something like that."
