There are plenty of major league baseball players who don’t deserve the talent that they’ve been given and Jacoby Ellsbury is definitely one of them.
There’s no debate in saying that it takes an extreme amount of talent and dedication to make it to the big leagues, but some of the players in today’s game just don’t deserve to be there. They may have worked hard to get to the big leagues, but you know that their heart just isn’t into it.
They could have bad attitudes, be constantly on the disabled list or just not be able to handle the pressure, while a veteran minor-leaguer could have that spot on the roster instead.
Here are some of these players I’ve just described and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. Feel free to put some other suggestions in the comments section, as there’s definitely more than five.
