Angels sign Finley

Postby Rico The Retard » Fri Dec 10, 2004 9:15 pm

From rotoworld:

Angels signed outfielder Steve Finley, who had been with the Dodgers, to a two-year contract with an option for 2007.
Finley, who picked Anaheim over Detroit and San Francisco, will help the Angels, but probably not as much as they hope. He's overrated defensively, and for all the talk of his career-high 36 homers, he had an OPS of only 823 last season. A substantial drop-off at age 40 doesn't seem all that likely, but the Angels are getting just a good player, not a star, for their $9 million or so per season

Pitching is desperately needed in Anaheim, I have no idea why they keep going for power. especially a soon to be 40 year old.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

very true, but he is still a good fit. Pitching would be better, but finley still helps the team.

Despite the quantity, there is not a lot of top quality starting pitching available.

He should put up solid numbers with the protection in the lineup. Look what he did with no one around him in Arizona.
