WHO IS THE MOST OVERRATED PLAYER?

Joba Chamberlain, Yankees P 12%

Alex Rodriguez, Yankees 3B 5%

Gary Matthews Jr., Reds CF 5%

Nick Swisher, Yankees RF 4%

J.D. Drew, Red Sox RF 3%

FAST FACTS

Overrated by whom? Outside of Rodriguez, none of the top five vote-getters have more than one All-Star appearance.... They Hate New York: Seven of the 16 with at least three votes have played this season for one of the two Big Apple teams.... Maybe the voters knew something: On June 15 the Mets released Matthews. Nine days later Cincinnati signed the 35-year-old but shipped him to Triple A Louisville.
