Team Of The Decade

The Rotation

by Dave Pease and Greg Spira

Just in time for this year's Internet Baseball Awards, we've stumbled upon the remaining data from the Team of the Decade voting.

Previous articles in this series:

The rotation of the Decade is set.

Greg Maddux missed out on MVP of the Decade, but he did get the most votes for Pitcher of the Decade and will be the rotation's ace. Maddux was exceptionally durable and above average every year in the decade.

Roger Clemens came in second. Clemens' career doesn't dovetail as well with a decade competition like this one; he had some of his best years in the previous decade. Randy Johnson, Tom Glavine, and Pedro Martinez round out the staff.
