Five Underrated Baseball Players, Five Underrated Baseball Cards

VLAD1 ImageAdam Dunn, OF, Washington Nationals
At age 30, Adam Dunn has accumulated 338 career home runs. Most importantly, he has never been linked to steroids or even rumors of steroids. When all is said and done, his career numbers could end up looking eerily similar to Harmon Killebrew's.

Josh Hamilton, OF, Texas Rangers
When Josh Hamilton is healthy and has his head right, he is as good as any player in the game of baseball, including Albert Pujols. He is the definition of the a complete hitter, being able to hit a ball farther than any player in the world as well as contend for batting titles. Had it not been for his problems with substance abuse early in his career, he might have been one of the best players to ever play the game.

Vladimir Guerrero, OF/DH, Texas Rangers
20 years from now when the steroid cloud clears, Vlad might be considered the best player of his generation. Without the benefit of steroids, at 35 years old Vlad has a .321 career batting average, 427 career home runs, and 2,359 career hits.

Joey Votto, 1B, Cincinnati Reds
Votto is the type of player that organizations are built around, he has leadership, talent, and work ethic. The 26-year old is just entering his prime and if all things go well, he should be the face of Cincinnati Reds Baseball for the next decade. He's the type of player who could establish a hardcore collector base similar to that of Mauer, Pujols, and Jeter.

Jaime Garcia, SP, St. Louis Cardinals
If Brennan Boesch were a pitcher, his name would be Jaime Garcia. Currently the 24-year old rookie is 8-4 with a 2.27 ERA and no one seems to be taking notice. I am not the biggest fan of his long term "star potential", but there is absolutely no denying that his numbers are "historically" impressive.

  1. I absolutely agree with Adam Dunn being one of the most underrated players/cards. Now I am not a Reds fan, but I am a stat guy and Adam Dunn puts up great stats every year. If you took away his career average (.251), he gives you something in every category. 40hrs, 100rbi, 100bb, 100r year in and year out. When he hits his 500th hr, you can put him in the HOF.
