This is a trade that is tough to figure out. These are two former All-Stars who took a big slide last season. When I said that the Giants needed another power-hitter behind Barry, this is not what I had in mind. They should have gone for a guy in his prime. As for the Angels, they didn't need another infielder in the first place. Their best move would have been to go after a quality starting pitcher. Finley and Alfonso will never put up All-Star numbers again, so it was a lousy trade by both teams.

this was simply a matter of trading headaches.

The Giants may have already realized that they made a bonehead move. It's only been a few days after they made the blockbuster trade, but they're reportedly trying to find any bidders for Steve Finley. Why would the Giants do this immediately after acquiring Finley? My theory is because of a possible backlash of Giant fans against the signing, since Finley is the guy who hit the home run for the Dodgers that eliminated the Giants from postseason play in 2004.

I agree with you. It is like trading trash for trash... but it has been more recent since Steve Finley actually did something very good. His 2004 was a great season.

Can't say the same for Edgardo.
