Finley's problems early in the year are pretty well documented throughout his career, but his bat tends to really heat up in the summer months. I swung a trade for him earlier in the year, and although I felt like I was getting screwed the past month and a half, I've been patient, feeling pretty secure that Finley will turn it up. And it looks like without Vlad around, he's doing just that. I would certainly take a flier on him if he's a FA in your league, 'cause even though his average is still down, those hits he has gotten have all been pretty important (statwise) ones. Also, he's already got somethign like 5 steals, which is a nice bonus from an aging OF. Snap him up I say...he won't be as effective as in years past, but he'll be better than a lot of others.
