Same principle as O-R: who should be given more credit than what they have been?

    Prepare for a shock: this Yankees fan votes for Kevin Youkilis. He has a great bat & a great eye at the plate, performs well under pressure and he can play both 3B and 1B competently. I have to give credit where credit is due.

    This list, like your other, is not to be taken seriously, Yankees-boy.

    Derek Jeter is on a most underrated poll? Wow, that's hilarious.

    I don't think most casual fans understand how great Todd Helton and Ivan Rodriguez are.

    And in the younger generation ... Matt Holliday and Russ Martin.

    Those numbers look OK to me ... Do you penalize other players who play in hitter-friendly parks?

    Helton also has three Gold Gloves, if I'm not mistaken.

    Helton needs a Colorado asterisk next to his name, but batting nearly .300 on the road is pretty good... I'm surprised it's that good, actually.

    Those numbers are lopsided, but not as lopsided as I would have guessed, is what I'm saying.

    That's right. While Todd Helton might be a good (very good?) hitter, you really have to take into account the Coors Field-factor and the fact that his power numbers have taken a sharp nose-dive over the last few years.

    Which is why I think he's underrated. That and the three Gold Gloves. Do we penalize left-handed hitting Yankees for being able to stand on home plate and piss over the right field wall?
