Dodger Cogs and Dogs 2011: Edition 1

The Dodgers' second-best hitter of the young season, Andre Ethier has reached base 11 times but scored zero runs.Welcome to the first edition of Dodger Cogs and Dogs, 2011.

As before, Cogs and Dogs is my ranking of the most valuable Dodgers of the year, top to bottom, mixing subjectivity and objectivity and focused on what's already happened, not what's likely to happen.

The final Cogs and Dogs of 2010 left us with only five players that you didn't have much or any reason to complain about. This year's debut installment isn't much different.
