Blog Kiosk 12/5/2014 - Dodger Links - Andre Ethier, AJ Ellis and Van Slyke

Featured above are Shawn Green, Vin & Sandra Scully and Justin & Kourtney Turner.  They were on hand for an Dodger sponsor event for UPS at Dodger Stadium the other day.  Photo above via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2014.  Go here to see more photos from the evening.

"I'm using the winter to take a step and get myself back to where I need to be," Ethier said. "You can't expect people to give it to you. You've got to earn it. I'm going for it in the offseason, so I will be prepared to compete and win a job.

"[Management] is busy hustling to get the team and the organization to the way they want it to be -- not just setting us up for next year, but for years to come. That's what happens with a shakeup. We really don't need that much on the Major League level. We need a good system top to bottom."
But on the mound and in the clubhouse, it was a no-brainer, and the fact that new baseball bosses Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi recognized that so quickly speaks volumes about the balance between numbers and intangibles that they could be willing to strike.

"It was based on the totality of his contributions to the team," Zaidi, the Dodgers' new general manager, said of Ellis. "It's not an intangible, it's a tangible that he creates."
