The Yankees placed three on the list, including the Most Overrated, Joba Chamberlain, who garnered 12% of the voting. Alex Rodriguez and Gary "I live off that one catch I made while I was with the Rangers" Matthews tied for second with 5%, Nick Swisher was fourth (4%) and the Red Sox' J.D. Drew was fifth (3%).
Overrated by whom? Outside of Rodriguez, none of the top five vote-getters have more than one All-Star appearance.... They Hate New York: Seven of the 16 with at least three votes have played this season for one of the two Big Apple teams.... Maybe the voters knew something: On June 15 the Mets released Matthews. Nine days later Cincinnati signed the 35-year-old but shipped him to Triple A Louisville.
OTM points out that Drew, and yes, even Swisher and A-Rod, are really not overrated, at all. And the comments over there would agree.
