The Most Overrated Player In The History Of Each MLB Franchise

Baltimore Orioles: Cal Ripken Jr.


Let’s just get this out of the way… Ripken is without a doubt worthy of the Hall of Fame. He is a fabulous player, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t overrated. The Baltimore legend had 11 seasons where he hit below .270. Sure he hit over 400 home runs, but he only surpassed 30 in one season. He was slow, hit in to far too many double plays, and barely got on base more than the league average. Ripken is a legend, he just isn’t as great as people are led to believe.
