If I remember correctly Sports Illustrated voted him "Most Over Payed Player," like three years in a row in the 90's.
He probably won't win this argument but he was always my favorite player, just because he got payed so much to suck.
And please leave the "he was awesome with atlanta, but after he broke his leg...." crap at the door.
Eh, '91 - '98 he was a pretty good player. As a Mets fan I always hated him when he was a Brave. He broke his leg in '94, so he still put together some good seasons after that in Atlanta, but there was definitely a sharp decrease in games played each season from '95 forward. Interestingly enough, that year when he broke his leg, he was the league's 3rd highest paid player at $5.5M.
