I already went over a Josh Hamilton overrated post, but I guess people were off reading his inspirational autobiography, “Baseball Between the Lines.” So I brought out the pirated Photoshop for a quick, “Don’t make me come back there!” Okay, this wonky .jpg is a bastardized Hype Cycle. If you don’t know what a Hype Cycle is, it’s because you didn’t go to Harvard. Don’t worry, neither did I. If I had, you would’ve heard about it a gazillion times. A hype cycle is this thingamaboob that tells you the life cycle of hype for certain technologies. Or technologiez, if you’re under 14. Now I took this thingamaboob and I reinvented it for Josh Hamilton and the schmohawkian hype that is following him around as we head toward your 2009 fantasy baseball draft day. So let’s break down this Josh Hamilton fantasy baseball .jpeg-a-roo-ski into the different stages of hype, shall we?Please, blog, may I have some more?

There were more than nine overrated players by my calculations, but I didn’t want to spoil the top 20 lists that are on their way this coming Monday. Muahahahaha… Anyway, here’s some overrated players for 2009 fantasy baseball:

In fantasy baseball, it’s imperative to trade away overrated players before they lose their luster and trade for underrated players. Then there’s simply the rated ones. If this reads vaguely familiar, it’s because I’m cribbing Chuck Klosterman, who I think is brilliant.Please, blog, may I have some more?
