Tony Jackson of the Daily News wrote that Grady Little is "unconcerned" about Andre Ethier's latest streak of 19 hitless at bats, which includes seven strikeouts.
"We know what this kid can do," Little said. "He will have his ups and downs, just like any other player. He is a good hitter."
Believe it or not, I'm not going to comment on how Little's tendency to stick with someone through thick and thin. In Ethier's case, we can be patient. But if we've learned from his performance last year, Ethier is nothing if not streaky--so he might as well get those bad streaks out of his system in Vero Beach.
