Overrated how? 3000 Hits? . 313 career batting average? Championships? Leadership? 13 time all star?

You are definitely delusional on this point.

Does he deserve first ballot consideration? In pure numbers yes in my opinion, but not necessarily from the you have to be a god to go in year 1 mentality that has evolved.
