Baseball star pitcher Frank Haywood hires Walter to retrieve his stolen sports bag. Walter, who only accepted as a favor to Deputy U.S. Marshal Isabel Zambada, senses the crucial item isn't even on the content list, nor of monetary value, but embarrassingly superstitious. Setting out for the prized trinket, he seeks suspects and motives among rivals and gamblers, braving the grim, unrelated Twins and an illegal betting club. Written by KGF Vissers

["Designated Hitter vs Al-Qaeda" is written on the blackboard]
Walter Sherman: It's a no-brainer. There is nothing more anti-American than the designated hitter.
Leo Knox: Al-Qaeda is more anti-American than anything.
Walter Sherman: This country was founded on a celebration of our individual freedoms. The designated hitter puts the team's collective success over that of the individual. Can't bat? Oh, don't worry.

The Finder Looks For Luck
3 February 2012 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

In this installment of ''The Finder'' we see Walter looking for a pair of socks that are lucky to a famous baseball player.

I really enjoyed this episode which had some of the funniest moments in the series so far.For example Walter and Leo encounter a duo known as ''The Twins'' who don't look anything like that.I also feel that this could be the episode where Willa starts to help a little more and actually contributing to the finding.Also this episode should get a mention of the fantasy scene which was well presented.

Overall I give this a 9/10, for it's quirky moments and a good plot line P.S: the scene where Walter tries to bring Leo into a discussion and Leo smoothly leaves Walter to get punched.
