Players you feel are vastly overrated
This can be for any sport, but I'll choose from baseball.

Ian Kinsler- Constantly lauded as a top tier player by analysts like Dave Schoenfield, to me Kinsler is not only overrated in the field, he's a detriment to his team at the dish. Last season, while playing 81 games in Arlington, he put up a line of .256/.326/.423. That's barely over league average for a 2B in a normal park, but in a launching pad like that one, it's pathetic. His road numbers are even less flattering. Hide your kids and get ready for the ugliness: .220/.290/.321 with 5 HR!!! You want to talk about worst contracts? Kinsler is signed at 15 mil/yr through 2017. His OPS+ (weighted for each player's ballpark effects) of 95 tied him with such great hitters as Jesus Montero and Ichiro. Assuming they can, the Rangers would be very smart to trade him and put Jurickson Profar at 2B. They could bring in just about anyone to replace those numbers
