Re: Most overrated player in baseball?
I have long been hard pressed to determine what exactly BJ Upton does especially well.
I think most fans here in NY hear 'Justin Morneau', remember him winning the AL MVP, and assume he's just been putting up similar numbers for the past several years because they don't pay attention to Minnesota based on the way they talk about trading for him. He's been okay since then but nothing all that special, and he can't stay healthy.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
