MLB Player Poll: Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter Most Overrated Players in Baseball?

Last week, Sports Illustrated sparked a media firestorm with the results of a poll in which 185 MLB players made their picks for the most overrated players in baseball.

The results were noteworthy for many reasons. Seven of the 16 top vote-getters play their home games in New York, and six others are from the AL East. In addition, more than half of them either signed new free-agent contracts last winter or will hit the market at the end of the 2011 season.

But the most striking thing about the results was that the players did a really bad job—only a few of the not-so-sweet sixteen could really be described as overrated.

In this slideshow are each of the top vote-getters, as well as an examination of whether or not they really are overrated.

Here's hoping we can set the record straight!
