Who is the best player in baseball? The most overrated? We poll 117 major leaguers to find out.

Yes 41 percent
No 29 percent
I don’t care 30 percent

“We get two days off a month. People with regular jobs get more days off than that!”—American League outfielder

Which player would make the most entertaining reality-show star?
“C.J. Wilson. He’s into racing cars, he travels everywhere. and he’s [married to] a supermodel.”—American League outfielder

“It’s Yasiel Puig. He’s completely insane. He’s got to be up to some wacky stuff. That would be the show to watch.”—American League pitcher

“Didn’t Madison Bumgarner bus down his cattle for spring training? And he bought his wife a baby bull as a wedding gift. You’re telling me you wouldn’t want to watch that?”—American League pitcher
