Sports Illustrated poll: A-Rod, Jeter & Joba ‘most overrated’ in baseball

sipollNot exactly shocking news, but according to the 185 players polled by Sports Illustrated, Alex Rodriguez, Joba Chamberlain, and Derek Jeter are the most overrated players in baseball (in that order). Click the image on the right to enlarge.

This year SI also revealed its results from fans voting on Facebook, which Jeter led as the most overrated by far, taking 45 percent of the vote. David Ortiz (17 percent) and A-Rod followed Jeter (15 percent).

In my opinion, none of these guys are the most overrated in baseball today. That man is Hanley Ramirez, who is making $11 million this year for the Marlins and hitting an abysmal .210 with four homers and 17 RBIs. ($11 million may not seem like a lot to us Yankees fans, but he’s by far the highest paid on the team and makes up one-fifth of the team’s total payroll.

Who do you think is the most overrated player in baseball?
