Steve Finley to the Angels 

Continuing this offseason's trend of vastly overpaying decent players, the Angels are reportedly close to signing Steve Finley to a two year, $20 million deal.

Finley is going to be 40 at the start of 2005, is little more than a decent defensive CF right now, and posted an EQA of .272 last season.

He's at an age, and has a skill set, where the question on the decline isn't when, but how much, and will it be a steep decline or a fall-off-the-cliff decline.

I'm guessing that, if this deal goes down, in mid-July of 2005, we'll be hearing talks about how Anaheim is trying to dump Finley and his contract.
