Free agent Steve Finley is reportedly still hoping the Cubs' center field position opens up through a Jacque Jones trade.



If not, he'll eventually have to accept a bench job elsewhere. According to FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal, the Marlins aren't interested in making him their center fielder.

he got $7mil last year and would be about as good as an Abercrombie/Reed platoon.

no wonder the Marlins aren't interested.

Why does last year matter....Finley would play for 500 K-1 mil this year.

Steve Finley is a first ballot hall of famer, so why not bring him in and see what he can do? If nothing else, it would bring fans out to the park to watch a future hall of famer. It would be cool if he signed with us and maybe wore a Fish uni on his HOF plaque. Good publicity, and if he's cheap enough why not? Better than what we have and he can still maybe hit 30 bombs and play a nice CF. Guy has a cannon for an arm too. And what a good leader in the clubhouse he would be. I am really hoping they wake up and smell the coffee and sign Finley. What a mistake it was to let Shannon Stewert get away. This would totally make up for it. Bullpen is first priority though, but if we have anything left over we need Finley on this team. That's more butts in the seats and more wins too. :thumbup
