Steve Finley, good hitter

I know, I know, he's gone (thank god!), but the Giants apparently weren't watching last year, or they strongly believe in second third springs. This quote comes from an article from MLB.com about the Giants thinking about batting Bonds 2nd in the lineup:
The reasoning now is that Bonds will likely be taken out of games in the late innings -- to rest his legs and help keep him healthy -- and Alou would prefer inserting a good hitter, the caliber of Steve Finley, as a replacement rather than an on-the-bench leftover.
Well, if I had just one word to describe the 2005 Steve Finley, "on-the-bench-leftover" would be it. But more and more I get the feeling, that next year, he will have a solid season, Erstad will be injured most of the time and we'll be stuck with El Fonzi on the bench.

"Erstad will be injured most of the time..."

I'm inviting trouble here, I know. It's just some worst case scenario vision.
Knock on wood thrice!
... wait, I have another vision: a golden, leathery thing ...
