Dodgers Dugout: Andre Ethier is there when the Dodgers need him - LA Times

He does?

—TBS analyst Ron Darling seems to have an intense dislike of the Dodgers. I wonder why? Maybe someone still remembers Game 7 of the 1988 NLCS? The mighty New York Mets were favored to slaughter the Dodgers. But what happened in Game 7. Oh, yeah, the Dodgers won. Who was the losing pitcher…. Let me check ….. Oh yeah, it was Ron Darling.

If his dislike of the Dodgers is real and it has to do with Game Seven of the '88 NLCS, he should be bitter with his own teammates. If I recall correctly, it was two errors by his infield that led to the floodgates opening early in that game. Wally Backman and Greg Jefferies(?), I believe.

Hey Cubs fans, Yu Darvish now has more postseason RBIs than Ernie Banks and Ron Santo combined.
Well, that's just childish.

Anyway, about Ethier, for some reason I was mansplaining to my girlfriend who Milton Bradley is and then Ethier came up to hit. That trade was 12 years ago but seems longer. Bradley doesn't show up as an inmate on California's prison website, so maybe he's out.

Ethier has been with the team longer than anyone and is the only Dodger left from the 2006 playoff team. It was cool that he hit a homerun and would be even cooler if he got a big hit in the WS. He's probably going to retire when the season finishes. If not, he certainly won't be back with the Dodgers. It'd be nice to see him end in a high note.
