My next list of MLB players is all the most underrated players at every position. I already did the busts, so here are the bargins.
Catcher: Jorge Posada- I know it's hard to call anybody on the Yankees underrated. But when you think about the Yankees, he is not the first guy you think of. Maybe the forth or fifth guy. He has been the most consistent catcher in the majors the past 10 years. He is never hurt, always plays hard, and he can throw very well now.
First Baseman: This one was tough. There are many ways I can go. Paul K. of the White Sox, Adrian G. of the Padres, Lyle O. of the Blue Jays. I'm going with Lance Berkman of the Astros because he is always under the radar. When you think of the best hitters in the game, he should be one of the guys you think about.
Second Baseman: Placido Polanco- He is one of the best contact hitters in baseball. Yet a casual fan doesn't know who he is. He is one of the pieces that holds the Tigers together.
Third Baseman: Garrett Atkins-Last year, he hit 29 homeruns with 120 RBIs. Bet you didn't know that. Add the fact that there is not much protection in that Rockies line-up.
Shortstop: Micheal Young-He is struggling this year, but you know he will turn it around. I feel alittle sorry for him. He is such a great hitter, yet everyone talks about him only when he is struggling.
Outfield: Matt Holliday-I think he is the most underrated player in baseball right now. He is so good and so talented, he can win the MVP of the N.L. He reminds me of Paul O' Neil.
Raul Ibanez-He is in Seattle, so of course he is underrated. He plays with all busts.
Mark Kotsay-He is out for 3 months this year, but overall, he has had a very solid career. His defense is great.
Pitchers: Josh Johnson-He could have won the Cy Young award last year if he didn't get injuried. Very young,too.
Dave Bush: The perfect 4th or 5th starter. He keeps you in games and gives you innings.
Scott Kazmir: He is the ace on the Devil Rays. What do you expect?
Roger Clemens: He never gets any attention or money.
Thats it. I am done.
P.S. Jose Lima is the greatest pitcher ever.
If I forgot anyone, please comment.
