I thought people always say Young is undervalued.

acsguitar, I hope you are right, since i bought low on him a few weeks back. I just was never very impressed by him here in Atlanta.

Mark, you may be right. I do like Young. Maybe I shouldn't have included him here, since he's more of a slow starter this year. He does usually provide good all-around numbers.

I understand what you and others are saying about Figgens. The thing is, he has proved that he can be a top-level fantasy producer. He just hasn't done it lately, and now injuries are a problem, too.

That kind of brings up an interesting question: is there a difference between "overrated" and "under-producing?"

I think Figgins is overrated. I think almost all speedy guys like Ichiro, Figgins, Reyes, Crawford, Pierre tend to be overrated.

Obviously one should kind of define whether this is overrated in baseball or overrated in fantasy baseball.

Yes speed tends to be overrated. However, I would have to say that Reyes has lived up to the hype so far this year...

I can't believe you just called Jose Reyes overrated! There is no doubt that he is a top 5 player.
