Dodgers ready to give Giants their best

PITTSBURGH – All series are equal. But some are more equal than others. “I think any time we play them it’s a really big series,” outfielder Andre Ethier said of the Dodgers’ three-game series in San Francisco beginning Friday. “It’s...

Kemp: Right In, Rather Than Left Out

Matt Kemp started Monday's game in right field, and to his credit (unlike Kemp's agent), Kemp was saying all the right things prior to the game: “I’m just happy to be in the lineup,” Kemp said to The Times’ Dylan Hernandez in Pittsburgh. “It’s just another position to play.” It seems clear, however, the Dodgers are determined to let Kemp know they very much do not envision him a center fielder. The easy thing Monday would have been to send Andre Ethier back home to right and start Kemp in center; Carl Crawford is starting in left. Center is the more glamorous, demanding...

Dodgers | Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier sitting Saturday

Los Angeles Dodgers OFs Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier are not in the starting lineup ...

Carl Crawford is next on "Who plays center field?"

LOS ANGELES – The center-field auditions continue. Next up is Carl Crawford, who hasn’t played the position on a consistent basis since he was 22 years old in 2004, but has begun taking fly balls there. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said it could give the Dodgers one more option. They have already tried Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Scott Van Slyke at the position and none has played at a high enough level defensively to hold down the spot permanently.

Has Andre Ethier now lost his starting spot?

LOS ANGELES – Despite having three of the highest-paid outfielders in baseball, the Dodgers apparently haven’t been able to find a solution they’re comfortable with in center field. For the second straight game Friday night, the Dodgers were facing a right-handed pitcher and Andre Ethier was not in the starting lineup. In addition to batting just .250 with four home runs in 279 plate appearances, Ethier grades out as a below-average center fielder in advanced defensive metrics.

Is Pierzynski Headed To Dodgers For Andre Either?

Is Pierzynski Headed To Dodgers For Andre Either?

A.J. Pierzynski (FenwayNation File Photo)A.J. Pierzynski is not in the Red Sox lineup today. That may mean something, or it may not. The latest rumors (from multiple sources) indicate that Boston is shopping the 37-year old backstop, who may have already worn out his welcome. Despite collecting a flurry of clutch hits earlier in the season, Pierzynski has faded at the plate (popping up about 30 times yesterday) and is less than Johnny Bench-like behind the dish. The hot rumor is a deal sending A.J. to the Dodgers for Andre Ethier (AKA Best Buddy Of The Muddy Chicken). The 32-year old Ethier...

Series preview: Dodgers at Rockies

Somebody asked Andre Ethier whether the Dodgers were "down" about playing two pretty lousy games at the conclusion of their last homestand and, thus, slipping right back into second place in the NL West, where they had spent nearly all of June. "Three weeks ago, you guys said we were out of it," Ethier said. "We're one game out, so are we going to be down?" OK, probably not, but this weekend -- with four games in Colorado -- would be a good time to get back on track.
