Curtis Granderson seems to get no love from anyone. :~(
Chad Gaudin is also overlooked. :X

Pretty much.

I also think that Alex Rios is very underrated. I think that he should be in the All Star game this year. I think that Byrnes is underrated as well, that is probably a result of his obscene hot streaks and cold streaks, but this year he looks like he is putting it all together.

Brandon Phillips and Jhonny Peralta are underrated.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

J.J. Putz is underrated by the average baseball fan. Probably not by fantasy players, as it's hard not to notice he's 20/20 this year with converting saves. Also, I'd point out his 1.11 ERA, .65 WHIP, .140 BA against, and 36 K's to 6 walks. I would listen seriously to someone arguing that he's the best closer in baseball.

The "double play twins" (as a Mariners commercial portrays them with a strange hint of homoerotic flavor), Jose Lopez and Yuniesky Betencourt, definitely fly under the radar. Neither of them have put together any long stretch of great numbers, but Lopez was an All-Star last year, and even though Yuni is having some defensive troubles he's got a really special defensive talent, and is quietly hovering around .300. I'm not saying they're vastly underrated, but to the average fan they barely register.

yep.

Pitchers: Chris Young; CC Sabathia
Swingers: Carlos Guillen; B Phillips; (and I thought V Guerrero had been underestimated on draft day all across the country).

Kelvim Escobar. Jeff Francis.

NOT Matt Holliday. The Yankees' broadcaster saying he's the best hitter nobody's heard of is classic East Coast bias. Nobobdy east of the Hudson, maybe.
