The Los Angeles Dodgers are winners for the 2011 season, regardless of a record that will finish around .500.
They have a pitcher who is a lock for the Cy Young in Clayton Kershaw and a player to build their team around in Matt Kemp, who is still in the hunt for the Triple Crown as the season reaches its final week. Kemp may even manage to win the NL MVP award depending on how voters feel about him playing for a .500 ballclub.
When it's all said and done, everyone knows the Dodgers squad that takes the field on Opening Day in 2012 will look much different from the team that finished this season.
It's clear at this point that Matt Kemp is the player they will choose to build around, especially seeing as Andre Ethier may be reluctant to sign in LA long-term anyway.
There is a very good chance Ethier will be gone before Christmas. Here are three potential suitors who may steal him away.
