The players I have empathy for, the ones nobody looks at. Instead we track A-Rod's every move when we miss out on all the unnoticed and unappreciated talent in the AL. Because it is all-star season I felt like the time was right to acknowledge the unacknowledged.
While gathering the 5 names I noticed an obvious trends. They were all except one from small-market teams, they were all over-shadowed by somebody, and all having career years.
