Most underappreciated player on your team?

So far its Theriot. With his eligiblity and Carlos Guillen's I cover the whole infield. He's given me a great average, good run productions, and solid sb.

Well, till I traded him yesterday it was Y. Betancourt. Was hitting just short of .300, which aint to bad for the 25th SS drafted in my league, after such studs as Lugo, Hardy, Greene and Harris, all of whom he has outscored.

José López

Currently sitting at .305 5 32 2 and ranked in front of guys like Weeks and Pedroia. Went undrafted in my 12 team league.

Mine is Wainwright for sure. I got him fairly late in our draft and he has turned into a viable 2nd starter on my team.

good call with wain. he has been very solid. i would also put forth yunel escobar. he can play many positions and contributes in r and rbi while hitting .300 with an occasional sb/hr. not a good starter, but a great fill in.

It has to be Youkilis for me. I pick him as a backup in most leagues and he has ended up starting.

Seems to me Kinsler is getting no respect for the year he's having.

Agreed. He does something every day.

Kelly Johnson. When he plays (I still don't understand why he gets a couple of days off every week)he has performed. I think the Braves underappreciate him more than me.

Todd Wellemeyer for me.

This year:

W-L 6-1 ERA 3.16 K 57 Walks 24 WHIP 1.14

He was my last draft pick and has arguably been my top pitcher.
