Most Overrated AL East Player

In my opinion, there really isn't a question about who the most overrated player in the AL East is: Jose Bautista. He had a career year in 2011 with a split of .302/.447/.608 but has been declining since then. In 2016, he hit to the line of .234/.366/.452 while playing only 116 games. Many people think he is an elite player because of his critically acclaimed bat flip. He may be considered one of the most popular players in baseball, but that just gives another reason that he is overrated. Bautista is also the biggest villain in baseball. However, I thought villains were the violent ones. Jose Bautista is many things, but he is not as good as many think.
