In my opinion, the title of the most overrated New York Yankee of all time belongs to none other than Alex Rodriguez. Despite his great stats, his performance was often inconsistent and his career was marred by controversy, notably his suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. His massive contract also placed a heavy burden on the Yankees' payroll, hindering the team's flexibility to sign other promising players. While A-Rod certainly had his moments of brilliance, his overall contribution to the Yankees was not as impactful as the hype suggested. He may be a household name, but in my eyes, he simply didn't live up to the legend of the pinstripes.
