(I didn't see any posts particularly discussing this. I apologize if there have been discussions about this elsewhere. )
So I read on MLBTradeRumors:
"Those close to Andre Ethier believe there's no chance he'd re-sign with the Dodgersafter the 2012 season. If true, Olney says it would make sense for the team to try to trade him offseason. You can make a case they'd be selling low though, Either had a down season by his standards (.292/.368/.421 with 11 homers) and finished the year on the disabled list due to knee surgery."
I'm guessing this mainly due to the disagreement over his injury. Is there more I can read about this? Also, what do the Dodgers do now in light of this? While he isn't as integral to the offense like M.Kemp, he still has had solid production at times and would be nearly impossible to replace given the flux over ownership and an already question marked LF.
Any thoughts or additional analysis about this would be great.
