Ethier is a solid left handed stick and definitely could benefit from being in a smaller ballpark and change of scenery but you are right, that contract is just terrible. However, the Dodgers just might be willing to eat a nice chunk of that since they haven't been shy about spending tons of cash. Puig pretty much makes Ethier the odd man out and other GMs have to know that.
