Jayson Werth Is Most Overrated Non-Yankee, According To MLB Players

Sports Illustrated does these periodical player polls where they ask professional athletes random questions that fans argue about, stuff like "best teammate," "biggest ego," "best coach" and all sorts of random things. Some of the questions and answers are amusing, some are instructive and some are totally pointless.

This week's issue asked baseball players who they believed was the most overrated player in the league. On the instructive-pointless scale, this probably is closer to "amusing" than anything. Unsurprisingly, a bunch of New York Yankees players were at the top of the list, led by Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter. Right after them, though (emphasis mine)?
