The Stark Truth: The Most Overrated and Underrated Players in Baseball Historyby Jayson Stark
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Every baseball fan knows New York Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter is a great all-around player. But how about Alex Rodriguez, Jeter's teammate, former American League MVP, and probable future Hall of Famer? Many would argue he's even better than Jeter. And what about Jeter's seemingly unassailable status as one of the greatest Yankees of all time? Such discussions highlight one of the great joys of being a baseball fan: arguing over who's really great and who falls just short, who doesn't get the respect he deserves and who gets too much. In other words, who's overrated and who's underrated.

"Are you ready, Jaypaw?" Redpool asked her. Jaypaw answered back with a quick nod. "Okay. You will train with Snowpaw and Whitpaw and their mentors because we all are learning the same thing. Icepaw will be learning something else." Redpool explained. "Wow, Redpool. I didn't know you're good at remembering that." Talonfeather commented while Tigerstripe begin the training for the three apprentices. "This move is called the belly rake." He explained and signal one of the mentors with his tail. Talonfeather pads over to him. Suddenly, they both wrestle each other in front of the apprentices. Moments later, Tigerstripe flipped Talonfeather to the ground. Talonfeather just lay there on his back, pretending to try to get up. "Now," Tigerstripe explained. "Once you got your opponent to the ground, they will try to get up, just as Talonfeather is trying to do." Tigerstripe stepped in front of Talonfeather and quickly jam his paws on his belly, claws sheathed. "If this was a real battle, I would had already killed him with unsheathed claws." Tigerstripe mewed. "But since is training, we don't want any spilled blood." Talonfeather warned. "Now, let's practice." Redpool finally spoke. "Snowpaw and Whitepaw, you two try to do the belly rake, claws sheathed. Jaypaw, you will try to do the belly rake with Talonfeather, claws sheathed." Jaypaw got into her position and narrowed her amber eyes on Talonfeather and his golden-like fur. Tigerstripe and Redpool stand next to each other. "Begin." Tigerstripe ordered. Talonfeather immediently got to the ground on his back so Jaypaw will try to do the belly rake. Jaypaw pounded her paws on his belly but Talonfeather whispered, "not yet." Jaypaw just watch Snowpaw and Whitepaw struggle against each other. Then Whitepaw fell to the ground on her back. Snowpaw immediently ran to her to jam his paws on her belly, but something is wrong. 'He has his claws unsheathed!' Jaypaw thought and ran to Whitepaw to help her up. "Stop." Tigerstripe ordered and Snowpaw stand still, his claws still unsheathed. "Jaypaw," Redpool called to her. "Why are you helping Whitepaw get up?" Jaypaw looked at Snowpaw's unsheathed claws and replied, "Snowpaw has his claws unsheathed." Talonfeather came up to him. "Were you trying to hurt your sister?" He asked his apprentice impatiently. "I'm sorry." Snowpaw apoligizes. 'If it weren't for me,' Jaypaw realized. 'My sister will be in serious pain right now.' END OF PART FIVE!!!!!
