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

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.
