According to Steve Lyons on Dodgers Live one of the authors (Simer I think) likes to stir controversy and this is just another one of his controversial reports. I don't think the throw outs at home plate and running thru the "stop sign" were deliberate errors. I hope that if there is a problem it can be sorted out and Ethier can settle down. If he needs surgery, then get it done! If he can get thru the season then let he and medical staff make the decisions on a day to day basis. Please though, I hope the crap, media driven, can be left behind.
