He's been a pretty nice player the past several years, but is having a down year now. He is being paid quite a bit of money, and not exactly who I would want in return if some form of retooling is on its way. The prospects seem decent, but I would just as soon leave Ethier out of the deal. Of course, the Dodgers want him out to make room for everybody in the OF.
