    It's a shame about the position rules. Leaving Chipper Jones and Lance Berkman off the list is pretty sad given how amazing they were.

    This idea is great, but has its flaws. For intance although Posada was great, Piazza was twice the hitter and hit over 180 HR as a catcher between 2000 and 2009. Not his fault his career exploded from mid 90's to mid 00's.

    Yeah, I just don't know how to make it cut and dry so that it's consistent for every decade.

    If it helps, Piazza is pretty much the easy choice for catcher in 1990-1999.

    I like the team but Id change the lineup to:

    1 Ichiro
    2 Pujols
    3 Bonds
    4 A-Rod
    5 Beltran
    6 Utley
    7 Jeter
    8 Posada
    9 Johnson

    I think Pujols should bat 2nd and Bonds 3rd for more ABs especially Bonds with his OBP.

    So I thought about it and I did my own:

    SS Derek Jeter
    CF Jim Edmonds
    1B Albert Pujols
    LF Barry Bonds
    3B Alex Rodriguez
    RF Vlad Guerrero
    2B Chase Utley
    C Jorge Posada

    Randy Johnson
    Roy Halladay
    Pedro Martinez
    Curt Schilling
    Johan Santana

    Mariano Rivera

    CF was really the biggest thing for me. Beltran got significantly more AB's than Edmonds, but I felt that Edmonds was so talented in his time that he should get the nod.

    Offensively:

    Edmonds: 280/389/548, 395 wOBA, 140 wRC+
    Beltran: 282/363/502, 369 wOBA, 121 wRC+

    Beltran is the better fielder, but Edmonds was still a strong defensive CF. I think the offensive edge for Edmonds (140 to 121 wRC+) is just too great to ignore. To put it in perspective, Edmonds was just as good offensively as Vlad (142 wRC+), and better than Utley (132 wRC+).

    If you place the emphasis on WAR or playing time then it is understandable to go with Beltran. But I think Edmonds was the superior player, and makes the 2000 lineup so much deeper.

    Looks great! And I think it's going to be a consistent discussion in each decade. Do you take a better 'prime' player in the decade who maybe didn't play as long, or someone who played all decade at a strong level but didn't produce at the same rates?

    Did you want to add a bench player nomination?

    If I could with out typing it all out(on phone) id like to submit the same votes as twitchy except with beltran in cf, ivan at catcher and JD Drew at RF. And bench player be David Ortiz. Sucks theres no dh, tough leaving his bat out of this. I know the drew pick isnt the best, but I know he wont anyway. Imo as an all around player he was probably the most talented RF and definitely showed flashes of that. If he could of have replaced 02, 05 and 07 with one seasons like 04 and two like his best in Boston, he could have easily been the best RF of that period. Just to bad he didnt give a ****, almost the ryan leaf of baseball.

    Thank you derekjeterdan, if everyone could do that, that's how I will tally the votes.
    Does it have to be a guy that was a utility player or came off the bench? Or just the best guy to put on your bench?

    Just the best player that you felt didn't make your roster/any roster

    Chipper Jones for the bench. He's better than some of the starters but A-Rod **** blocks him for a starting position.
