FIRE JOE MORGAN: Time to Start Keeping Track

FIRE JOE MORGAN

Where Bad Sports Journalism Came To Die

FJM has gone dark for the foreseeable future. Sorry folks. We may post once in a while, but it's pretty much over. You can still e-mail dak, Ken Tremendous, Junior, Matthew Murbles, or Coach.

Time to Start Keeping Track

of terrible, basis-less predictions. Here's one from MSNBC.com's Ted Robinson:

Best acquisitions of the offseason: Toronto’s trade for Troy Glaus, and San Francisco’s trade for Steve Finley.

Glaus...whatever. He's good. Defend Finley, please.

Finley cost the Giants nothing, and with a remarkably healthy body for a 40-year-old, he provides the Giants with veteran experience to support the fragile Barry Bonds and Moises Alou.

Steve Finley will be 41 on March 12. Here are his numbers from 2005:

AB -- 440
RC/27 -- 3.34
OPB/SLG/OPS -- .271/.374/.645
OPS+ 73
EQA -- .225
WARP -- 1.1
FRAA -- (-2)

He cost them nothing, and, barring a massive and statistically improbable turnaround at age 41, he will provide them with nothing.

He did achieve an outstanding 165.431 in "veteran experience," though.

Baseball's back!
