Withrow throws over a 100 mph.

Default Just Wondering

1) Will LA take Dunn in the package?
2) If we get Ethier in the trade, where does that put the Tank? Maybe Hahn is working on another deal also.
3) Does anybody know anything about the other players mentioned who might be coming to the White Sox?

I would imagine Rios would be the next to go. Or, if we could magically move Dunn or Konerko, Viciedo could DH.

Didn't Hanley Ramirez just get back for the Dodgers? Why would they want Alexei? Unless they would move Hanley to 3B again. I don't know, but it doesn't seem like a great fit for LA.

The Yankees might have interest in Konerko.

Am I missing something here? Isn't Ethier pretty much not all that good? And he's being paid a ton through 2017! 5 million seems like a pretty light cash addition.

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.

And not to mention Uribe is playing better than Alexei anyway.

Ethier definitely could be one of those guys I'd be willing to take a flyer on and hope that he just needs to get away from Mattingly (who he's been butting heads with most of this season), but yeah, that is a lot of contract to take on. I'm not sure I'm interested in the Sox rolling the dice on a guy whose signed through 4 more years through age 35.

That's my thinking. If there were more cash coming with him or if they were taking Dunn off our hands I'd feel differently. I guess if the prospects are good it might be an equalizer, but I don't know enough about them.

Unless LA is going to pay half of what Ethier is owed I don't want him on the Sox. That is not a contract the Sox should have any interest in trading for.

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.
