Just finished watching ESPN's top 20 most underrated athletes of all-time. No. 1 was Stan Musial. No argument there. Otto Graham was no. 2. Also very deserving. But there were two baseball players that made the list that I would actually put on my overrated list: Jim Rice Edgar Martinez There are some guys who maybe start out underrated, but then everyone and his brother takes up his cause to the point that the man actually becomes overrated. That is definitely the case for E. Martinez. Considering his era, his stats are nothing special. And he was completely one-dimensional. If he makes the Hall of Fame, I will write my Congressman. Jim Rice was always given his just due as a player. He was a great hitter for about 6-7 years, and a decent hitter for another 6-7 years. He is borderline Hall material, which is why he's considered underrated, because his supporters whine louder and louder every year that he does not make it. If he makes the Hall, I'll be o.k. with it, but I'm also fine if he doesn't make it. Here are the two guys I would replace on the underrated list for Rice and Martinez: Al Kaline Dwight Evans Kaline goes without saying - one of the best all-around players of his era, World Series Champion, 3,000 hits and 399 homers (getting to 400 would have helped his cause). But yet, no one ever talks about him. Remember, he played in a pitcher-dominated era, so his stats do not jump off the page compared to today's numbers. And he was probably one of the nicest guys to suit up. Evans was Rice's teammate for most of their careers. Evans is way more underrated than Rice. In fact, I would rate Evans higher than Rice in overall value and Hall consideration. Yet, is Evans even considered for the Hall? Nope - not even on the radar. At least Rice is being considered. Evans was a much better fielder than Rice and his offensive value is nearly equal with Rice, especially when you consider on-base average. Oh, and for all you Pistons-haters out there, Joe Dumars was no. 5. They said he was the only guy who could give MJ fits. And another one for Motown - Jack Morris made the list, too. Good choice. Should be in the Hall, along with Alan Trammell.
