Klesko for Finley...

Title Track

Question from Padres.com:
Is there any credence to the rumors that the Padres may take Steve Finley back to finish his career? If Ryan Klesko leaves, we could have a hole in the outfield that Finley would fill nicely. -- Julie J., San Diego

According to Cot's Baseball Contracts, Klesko is due $10.0M in '06 and Finley is due $7.0M. Saving $3.0M would be nice, but what about the difference in production?

Looking at this past year using a method borrowed from Joe Giovannetti:Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Klesko, despite pulling down $2.0M more was overpaid by $1.702M less.

Looking at them based only on their numbers from last season (adjusted for all-time):Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Klesko was productive. Finley was not. The difference in salary does not make up for the difference in production.
