I dunno if he's overrated.....overrated by who?
By the thousands of punters who took him in the first 3 rounds.
Neither a .280 average or 120 RBI's could have been expected given he hasn't hit more than 108 RBI's the past 2 seasons and his average has dipped significantly over that period as well.
100 odd RBI's 40-45 dingers and a .270 average puts him on a par with another strikeout machine Adam Dunn and with Dunn's multi position eligibility I'd prefer him over Sosa. That is about where Sosa should have been taken in drafts. As usual he was way, way over rated.
