I think he was overrated in general, but Pokey didn't get that much love from Redszoners/Fastballers (I forget where we were then). He was generally viewed as a poor hitter that played just because of his glove.
Some of these choices are interesting. I guess people interpret overrated differently, but that makes for good reading.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
