Josh Donaldson is the most overrated player west of the Mississippi 

The guy has an avg stat line of 34 home runs, 35 doubles, 878 OPS has won an MVP and has a couple all star appearances. I think he is properly rated. I wouldn't want my team to sign him to a 4 year contract at 33 but that's besides the point. He has been a really good/great player for a while now.

He didn’t deserve that MVP

So it was vacated then? Just because you don't think he deserved it doesn't mean the writers didn't vote him over Trout.

Donaldson isn’t overrated it’s just that contracts like this to a player his age are very rarely ones that teams are happy about in the end.  I didn’t want the Angels to touch him and I’m glad they didn’t.

Angels will be paying Rendon $38.5M/yr during his age 34-36 seasons (Donaldson's deal runs through his age 34-37 seasons). 

( @Glen, there's a Rendon comparison for you...)

Yes, but Minnesota only gets those years, not ones preceding them as well.
