• Will Ethiers contract affect Swishers winter?

    If you havent heard yet, the new Dodgers ownership group made their first big splash last night, signing rightfielder Andre Ethier to a six year, $85 million contract extension with a vesting option that could push the total value of the deal over the $100 million mark. Its a huge deal for a popular player having a big season, but it could also have ramifications for this winters free agent class, including the Yankees own rightfielder Nick Swisher.
