Bias has run amok in Red Sox Nation.

In other news, water is wet, the sky is blue and the sun burns hot on a bright summer day.

My good friend and Bleacher Report colleague Lewie Pollis recently wrote an article entitled "The 10 Most Overrated Players in Baseball," in which he discussed such icons of overvaluation as Ryan Howard, Mark Teixeira and, of course, Derek Jeter.

Not surprisingly, this piece has unleashed a firestorm of criticism from fans of those players, and at last check Lewie's article has received an astounding 397 comments.

Interestingly, though, while Lewie took it upon himself to assail three different New York Yankees, this dyed-in-the-wool Red Sox fan failed to observe a simple truism:

The most overrated player in baseball is none other than Red Sox icon Kevin Youkilis.

Such bias cannot stand. And so it is that we now take a look at the most overrated player on each team in Major League Baseball.

This way, everyone gets to gripe.
