Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Lee Sinins, publisher of the Baseball Sabermetric Encyclopedia, writes that "in the past half century, (Juan) Encarnacion is in the top 10 for worst career OBA, vs. the league average, among OF with 3000+ PA."

Shelby, Snyder, Encarnacion and Demeter are all once or future Dodgers, Bob Timmermann wrote to note.

Reports indicate that the Dodgers will non-tender Encarnacion a contract if he does not agree to their terms, but that those terms could be as generous as $4 million per year for two years.

The guy's supposed to be a hell of a fielder, though, which is probably why the rumors of Shawn Green moving to first base are rekindling.
