    Ethier would be the guy I'd trade. Maybe he can get traded to a team like Seattle whose ballpark benefits left handed hitters.

    Trade Ethier, lock up Kershaw, make a deal for David Price, get new manager. BAM!

    from what I've read he is getting the same money as before but over 4 years instead of 7 so he came out a bigger winner with Borass

Did you honestly forget about his speeding, reckless driving and driving without proof of insurance charges? To me, those actions alone set off entitlement alarms. There are plenty of red flags with Puig. I think it would be incredibly foolish to build a franchise around him until he proves there's substance behind his flash.

    At this point nobody knows one way or the other.
    I couldn't agree more about Puig. I don't think the Dodgers should build around him at this point, but at the same time they have to consider Puig will most likely be the future of this franchise. Yasiel is still very young and he's also still a stanger to a new land, and a new way of life. There's some issues he suffers from because things are done differently in Cuba, and there are some issues he suffers from because he's just a straight up self centered jerk. At Yasiel's age you can make the point that there is still a ton of room for him to improve, both with his on field and off field issues. Matt Kemp on the other hand is at his peak age, and he has been getting paid like he doesn't need to improve his focus or swing mechanics.

    At this point I think the franchise belongs to Kershaw, Hanley, and Gonzalez. Those are the leaders, those are the franchise players now. Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier had been given this title ever since Manny Ramirez left, and all the both of them have to show for it is about 1 to 1 1/2 good seasons since that time.

    If I had to choose from either one or the other on who I have to go with from here on out, Puig or Kemp? It's a no brainer, I'm going to go with Puig. I know people want to defend Matt Kemp because they invested so much time in likely him, and invested so much money in buying his merchandise and jerseys, but people have to see the reality of where Matt Kemp has been going for the last two seasons.

    Like I tell my friends, if Matt Kemp was on the Angels you know you would be making fun of the Halos right now for having another overpaid hasbeen on their team.

    Hmmm..sounds like Mattingly doesn't even wants to be in LA anymore?

    Y! SPORTS

    I couldn't agree more with Don. If the Dodgers are giving off this vibe where they don't show confidence in his managing skills, then why keep him around?

    Seems like Mattingly is probably on his way out, and if he is they should fire Colletti while they're at it. I really hope they don't hire Dusty Baker.

    100% behind all of this.

    If ownership had faith in Mattingly they would've already offered him a multi-year extension. Clearly they are luke-warm on him, at best. I say let him go and promote Wallach with the interim tag. He won't be a lame duck like Mattingly would be and instead he'd be on an audition. If a better candidate comes along then give Wallach the option to reclaim his role as 3B coach or let him walk. And **** Colletti. The guy was given a blank check 17 months ago and the team he put together is just not good enough.
