What makes a baseball player overrated? It's really all in a baseball fan's perception of the player and how he ranks among others at their position and their contemporaries.
Some players become a fan favorite and wind up overrated in the eyes of history, some players undeservedly wind up in the Hall of Fame and are forever lumped in with the greatest of all time where they don't belong, and still others wind up overrated for different reasons altogether.
Here is my take on the most overrated players in baseball history, from under achieving Hall of Famers many of you may have never heard of to some of the bigger names in baseball history who fall short of their legendary reputation upon further look at their numbers.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts, and may the debate begin.
