ESPN customarily announced the 2010s all-decade team today. Ichiro Suzuki, who retired from professional baseball in March, has been selected one of the 2000s all-decade team members.
The team members are as below:
Catcher: Bustoer posey
First base: Joey Votto
Second base: Robinson Cano
SThird base: Adrian Beltre
hortstop: Francisco Lindor
Outfield: Mike Trout, Mookie Betts, Andrew McCutchen
DH/utility: Miguel Cabrera
Starting pitcher: Clayton Kershaw, Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Madison Bumgarner, Chris Sale
Relief pitcher: Craig Kimbrel
The 2000s all-decade team members are as follows:
Catcher: Jorge Posada
First base: Albert Pujols
Second base: Chase Utley
Third base: Alex Rodriguez
Shortstop: Derek Jeter
Outfield: Barry Bonds, Carlos Beltran, Ichiro Suzuki
Starting pitcher: Randy Johnson, Johan Santana, Curt Schilling, Pedro Martinez, Roy Halladay
Relief pitcher: Mariano Rivera
Also, there is an expectation if which team could be a winner.
About the 2000s, their offensive power, including Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez and Albert Pujols, could be better than the 2010s, plus their defense of the outfield with Carlos Beltran and Ichiro Suzuki would be very solid. Randy Jonson and Pedro Martinez were notable as starters, but they passed their peak.
On the other hand, the 2010s team has three exceptional starting pitchers such as Clayton Kershaw, Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer whose pitching has an edge over the 2000s.
As a result, the ESPN made a judgment that the winner was the 2010s.
I think the series of articles like this are very fun and meaningful in looking back on the Major League history.
