Most Underrated player...?

Postby Havok1517 » Sat Aug 12, 2006 2:29 am

For years, the most underrated player has been almost unanimously Garrett Anderson. But now, it appears Anderson's injuries have derailed his status as the most underated player in baseball. I know SI does a list of the most overrated and underrated players voted by fellow ballplayers. So, as fans, who is the most underrated player now reality/fantasy?

My Vote:

Raul Ibanez (on pace for 30+ HR, 100+ RBI, & 90 R)

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/566 ... Sb5nKFCLcF

Ibanez is consistently putting up good/great numbers and nobody ever really talks about him.

If you have somebody to add, please post.

I went with Jermaine Dye because he is largely over looked hitting behind Konerko and Thome. He is having a monster impact and one of the reasons the White Sox are still in it.


I was tempted to go with Ibanez, but I'm leaning a tiny bit towards Dye, which is why I voted for him
go 49ers!!!!!

I think one guy that should definitely be added to that list for this season is Joe Crede. Nobody realizes how great of a season he is having.

Ehhh... He's got a good average and very good HR totals but 19 walks in 107 games? He's creating a lot of runs with his slugging but his on-base skills are average at best.

I rarely read or hear anything about him and yet since 2004 there has been no better (or no more complete) hitter in the American League except (probably) Manny Ramirez.

How about Reed Johnson this year? He's batting .340 and with tonight's plate appearances I believe he's put himself into 3rd in the AL batting race. His OPS is also up near the top 10 in the league right now. Obviously these numbers are going to eventually come down, but other than Vernon Wells, Reed Johnson IMO has been the most important part of the Jays' offense (he's gotten on base at a .420 clip this season at the top of the order). Defensively he is very solid out there as well. This was a breakout season that was very much needed with all those question marks surrounding a possible Wells extension/trade in the offseason.

If we are going from this list though, it's gotta be Jermaine Dye. He's put up an amazing season this year.
