Ethier might have eye on Boston

Andre Ethier
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."

Ethier might have eye on Boston


Considering the situation in LA, I am pretty sure Ethier "might have an eye to go anywhere" right about now.

If Ethier can crush a 96 MPH fastball of Wilson to left field, can you imagine his numbers to the right filed porch in Fenway Park. Ethier has been the most productive Dodger the past 3 years, and single handedly had 8 walk off hits (mostly homers) for LA in 2009. The Red Sox must be salivating at this.

Maybe Frank McCourt can get his Parking Lot back!
