I thought it was more like trading Old English for Steel Reserve.

and you can tell by the length of this thread, these are two guys the fans couldn't wait to get rid of.
So long Fonzi, bring on the nightly free swingin Feliz.

At least Feliz doesn't make $7 million to hit 2 HR :-P

Isn't this trade really bad for a number of guys who could have otherwise brought good fantasy value this season? Soscia seems like just the type of guy who would give Alfonzo DH and 3B starts here and there, to the detriment of 100% consistent PT for Rivera, McPherson and Kotchman.

Finley hit 34 HR's w/96 or so RBI's just 2 yrs ago so he obviously has the better potential even at his age I would think.

The Angels outbid the Giants for Finley just last year, so this works out perfect for SF as they get the guy they wanted and get to swap a similar salary that they haven't wanted for some time.
