A friend and I are wracking our brains trying to remember the name of a journeyman player the Angels picked up for a season about five years ago - I believe to fill the gap of Glaus/McPherson.
I only remember that the guy was caucasian, he never produced offensively, Scioscia stuck with him maddeningly, and when the bum was interviewed, he always claimed to be a trade-worthy commodity "at the peak of his career." They finally bagged him at the end of the season and ate the rest of his contract. I don't think he played anywhere after that.
No it was not Finley, but a very similar situation.
