He's having an excellent season and the Mets have gotten more WAR from the SS position than any team in baseball so far in 2022.

One other thing to note about Lindor is that he's been pretty good at driving in runs during his tenure with the Mets. Last year it felt like the team just could not get hits with RISP, but Lindor actually had an .851 OPS with men on and .954 with RISP. This year it's .862 and .875.

Underrated doesn't necessarily mean underpaid. For example, Lindor didn't even make the AS team this year. (Currently 4th in NL WARpos.) Of course neither did Tommy Edman (currently 7th, I think higher at time of selection).

Among NL shortstops, he's certainly having a better season than Fernando Tatis Jr.

Jeter is the first player I can think of who swung from wildly overrated to wildly underrated to wildly overrated. After the Marlins stint and the generally unfavorable press about his Yankee years, he might be underrated again.

It's not all that often that both fanbases are pleased with the results of a blockbuster trade.

What? Derek Jeter was never underrated during his playing days. (He may have vacillated between overrated and fairly rated at times). Are you saying he was an underrated team president of the Marlins? By what metric?
