Via Mark Feinsand –
Alex Rodriguez topped this year’s Sports Illustrated “Most Overrated Player” poll, followed by Joba Chamberlain and Derek Jeter.
A-Rod received 18 percent of the vote among the 185 major leaguers that participated, while Chamberlain was listed by 12 percent and Jeter by seven percent. Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth (4%) and Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon (4%) rounded out the top five. Nick Swisher also received four percent of the vote.
Chamberlain topped this list a year ago, while A-Rod finished second.
I guess A-Rod and Joba just rub a few of their peers the wrong way…two years in a row now.
