Luis Sardinas obviously is not the only trade chip in the Rangers’ search for power. There have been a lot of rumors concerning retooling the offense that dropped to 7th in the league in runs—in a hitter-friendly ballpark. One rumor that keeps cropping up is for the Rangers to send Ian Kinsler to the Dodgers for Andre Ethier. Kinsler makes a lot of sense for L.A., as he could play third, he could play some second if Cuban Alexander Guerrero doesn’t pan out, he could even play some left field. Arlington could be a great park for Ethier, but that could calm their talk about Shin-Soo Choo, since neither has had much success against lefthanded pitching; Ethier hit .221 against lefties, Choo .215 with a miniscule .264 slugging percentage.
Ethier-Kinsler trade makes sense for Dodgers
