Here's Rotoworld's take on the situation

Rotoworld wrote:After going 0-for-5 in his start against a left-handed pitcher last night, left-handed hitter Andre Ethier is out of the lineup against a right-hander tonight.
Ethier is batting .351 against left-handers, but that's obviously something of a fluke. He still has the better OPS against right-handers and he's clearly a better bet against righties going forward. Still, Grade Little somehow has it in his mind that he's better off playing Marlon Anderson over Ethier against a right-hander than Jason Repko over Ethier against a lefty, even though Repko hits lefties better than Anderson hits righties and is the far better defender of the two. Little's decision making hasn't been a big problem in his first year in Los Angeles, but there's a good chance he'll prove to be a liability come playoff time.

Man-----I gotta use that paragraph for the "Overthinking 101" course
I`m taking. :-D

I guess Grady just played Ethier everyday until he was sure he was cold. The rookie stayed hot for a long time though.

He has been awful for nearly a month, but at least he lasted longer than Kemp :-B

Anyways, this kid is good and I think he's someone to look for next season. I certainly will ;-D
