I hear that Finley has been hanging out with Bonds these days, and is using the same "workout regime". :-?

After last night's HR I proposed a couple of trades. THis morning, woke up and saw that another manager has accepted:

Finley for Maggs B-)

Finley for Maggs??? I couldn't fathom somebody accepting that trade even if Maggs was having a horrible start to the season. The fact of the matter is that Maggs is putting up solid numbers.

Time to sell on Finley. His stock is never going to be higher.

When (not if) he cools down, it's gonna be a huge one.

You may want to actually look at more than two year's worth of stats before saying he has the same stats every year, because your argument is just plain wrong.

In 1996, Finley hit 30 HR seemingly out of nowhere. His previous career high had been 11. He followed it up with a 28 HR season in 97. Then in 98, he slumped back to 14. Maybe his power surge is over? Nope - 34 in 99, 35 in 2000. So now he's established himself as a stud power hitter, right? Nope - back to 14 HR in 01. Then 25 HR in 02 and 22 in 03, pretty similar.

Finley's historically very unpredictable. Just when you think you see a pattern, it changes. It wasn't long ago that Finley had 35 HRs in a season and given the head start he has now, I see no reason he can't do it again.
