Looking at recent players with similar careers to Ethier: (Shawn Green, Trot Nixon, Cliff Floyd.)
Ethier is entering his age 33 season. In total his comps combined for -0.4 WAR from age 33 to retirement. Perhaps his decline is not so premature.

@HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex @juanhenry Wellington Castillo is not bad
@ to this one @Table (dick) I cringed. It's a good thing the new ownership had so much money, otherwise I would have done something worse than that.

@HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex @Table (dick) @ryus_hadouken Of course they don't "want" to. However taking on money the way they did in the "Punto trade" is essentially opening yourself up to spending dead money. You are eating that money with the player on your team or not on your team. That's the reaity. Just because smaller markets like the OKC Thunder refuse to eat their dead weight players, the Dodgers would."
@ryus_hadouken @Table (dick) @HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex I mean it's 100% obvious that teams would eat 30 mill if the conditions were right. The Phillies would gladly eat 30 mill to get out of Howard's contract. The Angels would probably do so to get out of Pujols or Hamilton's. The Dodger's would likely for Ethier. To rely on whether or not it's occured historically is kinda lame
@HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex @Table (dick) Nobody has ever been the Dodgers. Every season we see contract records broken. It's going to happen.
It was definitely one of Ned's great last blunders to resign Ethier to that big contract. Kemp was already locked up long term and even then it was obvious that he probably needed to move to a corner. It didn't make sense to commit so much money to a platoon no defense outfielder with declining power well into his 30s.
As for his trade value, I agree that it's currently almost zero. So 90% of his contract would have to be eaten, and that's without getting even a decent AA reliever back.
" Carl Crawford could go, though he’s only mildly more valuable than Ethier is." Nitpicking but if Ethier has zero value, I'd consider Crawford's value to be not so mildly greater. He has not played a full season with the Dodgers, but he's played at a 3 win per year rate when he has been on the field. I know he's been streaky, he's getting older, and health is still a concern with him. However GM's that want to win now and who can see the value of all around contributers would love to get him for 10 mill per year on a 3 year deal.
So eat 50% of Crawford's contract. Puig in Center. Kemp in RF. Pederson/Van Slkye in LF.
Ethier can "compete" with Pederson for playing time, and can PH. Who knows maybe Pederson struggles, and Ethier bounces back some? I'd rather keep Ethier as a 5th outfielder than to give him up at 90% salary for nothing.

@Omer (beercoozie) I don't recognize it
@P_F_P Honestly it's just a title. Andrew wants like minded people to collaborate with. He's more or less the GM
@foldamort I mean it ranked 25th this year
@The Dude Abides @Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda @mostly exciting potato In 2012 I campaigned (on da blogs) for one of Cody Ross/Scott Hairston/Jonny Gomes to be signed instead of Juan Rivera.
Their 2012 WARs: Ross=2.3 Gomes=2.0 Hairston=1.7 Rivera= -0.9
and Rivera might have recieved the biggest contract
@The Dude Abides @Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda @mostly exciting potato UGH I hated that so bad, there were a bunch of younger better RH platoon bats available too
@YadierMolinasOedipalComplex Why is hitting so important? The Royals are in the world series. Gordon counts
