Ethier confident he'll get deal from new owners
SEATTLE -- Club president Stan Kasten tweeted that he expects Andre Ethier will be a Dodger for a very long time, and Nez Balelo, Ethier's agent, is in Seattle this weekend. So, too, is Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti.


Apparently so, said Balelo, who said he was in town because he represents Mariners pitcher Jason Vargas.

Nonetheless, Ethier seems to have more confidence that new club ownership will wrap him up before he's a free agent this winter, but so far, nothing is concrete.

  • 142 wins
  • 110 wins

"Nothing's changed, they haven't made anything that I'm aware of," said Ethier. "Maybe they made something to my agent, but I told him not to tell me until there's something for me to consider. I'll keep playing and helping the guys win.

"I expect to be here a long time, and both sides have expressed that. They want me here and I want to be here. Mutually, both sides want me here. Obviously, this is a good fit. It's where I want to be and a great opportunity to play with these guys who have put a lot of hard work in, and I hope we continue what we're doing right now."
