Old people, just go away. Im sick and tired of old people taking up roster spaces:
After 19 major league seasons, 2,548 hits and a four-month forced sabbatical last summer, Steve Finley reached a decision: He’s not ready to give up on playing just yet.
Finley, one of only six players in history with more than 300 career home runs and 300 stolen bases, wants to return for a 20th season in 2008. So he’s asked his agent, Casey Close, to look for openings — even though the best he’ll get is probably a minor league invite with a chance to compete for a job in spring training.
“I’ve still got that bug,” said Finley, who turns 43 in March. “I’m still in great shape and doing my workouts. The bottom line is, I want to play.”
