The All Decade Team

Second base: Jose Altuve, Astros

Hey, another six-time All-Star and a former MVP. But unlike Posey and Votto, who have faded of late, Altuve’s still a high-end performer. The diminutive 29-year-old’s fresh off his sixth straight outstanding season after beginning his career as a fairly non-threatening hitter. Between 2014-19, Altuve hit .327/.380/.497 with 114 dingers and helped his team to a championship. He ranked fourth in the majors in fWAR (32.4) and fifth in stolen bases (179) during that span.

Didn't realize that Pitcher wasn't a position.
   2. Jose Is Absurdly Chatty Posted: January 01, 2020 at 10:59 PM (#5912244)
Yeah, that was weird.

Most of the choices seem pretty sound, though I'd give Beltre the nod over Donaldson.

And yes, the absence of any pitchers is bizarre.

Designated hitter: David Ortiz, Retired

You’re well within your rights to want, say, the ageless Nelson Cruz here, but I’ll take the now-retired Ortiz – one of the most feared hitters and one of its premier big-game hitters throughout his career. From 2010 until his retirement in 2016, Big Papi was a five-time All-Star, a two-time champion and a one-time World Series MVP. Ortiz slashed .292/.383/.562 and swatted 224 HRs in that span before saying goodbye to the game. Even in his final season, his age-40-campaign, Ortiz was a force at the plate.


Ortiz is not a bad choice, but neither would Cruz be. Cruz has 3 more years, and made the best of them. 9 more WAR in the decade, an average of three 3 WAR years. 3 good years.

Ortiz is not a bad choice, but neither would Cruz be. Cruz has 3 more years, and made the best of them. 9 more WAR in the decade, an average of three 3 WAR years. 3 good years.


To the extent it matters, Cruz spent about half of that time as an outfielder (though as an outfielder whose best position was DH).

   6. Misirlou gave her his Vincent to ride Posted: January 01, 2020 at 11:47 PM (#5912251)
Yeah, I don't think that matters. If Cruz had never, or rarely been a DH, sure.
   7. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: January 02, 2020 at 12:55 AM (#5912257)
I think Miguel Cabrera should have higher priority to making the team than Ortiz and if he’s not picked at 1st or 3rd could be picked at DH. It’s sort of a question of what criteria you’re using to build the team. Simply considering value at each position hurts guys who split their time at multiple positions.

3+ seasons of 5+ position player WAR in 2010-19 and 300+ games at the position:

C: Buster Posey (Yadier Molina, Carlos Santana, Joe Mauer)
SS: Andrelton Simmons, Troy Tulowitzki, Francisco Lindor
2B: Robinson Cano, Ian Kinsler, Jose Altuve, Ben Zobrist, Dustin Pedroia
3B: Adrian Beltre, Josh Donaldson, Miguel Cabrera, Evan Longoria, Nolan Arenado, Manny Machado, Anthony Rendon, Kris Bryant
CF: Mike Trout, Andrew McCutchen, Lorenzo Cain, Kevin Kiermaier

1B: Joey Votto, Miguel Cabrera, Paul Goldschmidt, Freddie Freeman, Anthony Rizzo
LF/RF: Mookie Betts, Giancarlo Stanton, Ben Zobrist, Jason Heyward, Jose Bautista, Ryan Braun, Christian Yelich, Alex Gordon, Aaron Judge

33 players with Miggy and Zobrist appearing twice. Votto and Miggy are pretty clearly the 2nd and 3rd best hitters of the decade and 3B is pretty stacked so Votto's 48 Rfield at 1B and Miggy's -43 at DH as opposed to taking David Ortiz or Nelson Cruz, Rbat for the foursome:

66.0, 64.1, 54.7, 51.6, 42.8, 39.8, 36.9, 4.5, -3.7, -4.6 Miguel Cabrera
59.5, 58.4, 55.8, 48.7, 46.8, 45.6, 41.5, 20.1, 9.1, 4.9 Joey Votto
46.2, 38.3, 36.7, 30.1, 26.6, 21.3, 19.7, DNP, DNP, DNP David Ortiz
44.0, 41.2, 39.5, 36.3, 29.0, 24.0, 21.6, 12.3, 8.2, 7.3 Nelson Cruz

WAR for the SS trio:

7.9, 5.9, 5.5, 4.7, 4.6, DNP, DNP, DNP, DNP, DNP Francisco Lindor
7.0, 7.0, 6.2, 4.2, 3.9, 3.6, 2.9, 2.1, DNP, DNP Andrelton Simmons
6.7, 6.2, 5.5, 5.3, 3.4, 2.8, 0.4, 0.2, 0.0, DNP Troy Tulowitzki

8 years of Andrelton over 6 good years of Troy or 5 years of Francisco seems like the way to go when their best 5 seasons are reasonably similar.

WAR for the 2B options:

8.1, 7.7, 6.1, 5.2, 4.8, 3.7, 1.4, 1.0, 0.6, DNP Jose Altuve
8.4, 8.1, 7.8, 7.3, 6.4, 5.8, 3.5, 3.4, 3.2, 0.3 Robinson Cano
7.0, 6.0, 5.9, 5.8, 5.0, 4.0, 2.4, 2.4, 2.3, -0.3 Ian Kinsler
8.0, 6.3, 5.8, 5.1, 4.7, 3.2, 2.0, 1.5, -0.1, -0.5 Dustin Pedroia
7.6, 5.8, 5.1, 5.0, 4.6, 3.7, 3.3, 2.0, 0.4, -0.1 Ben Zobrist

5.8 and 4.6 by Zobrist he has less than 40% of games at 2B in those seasons. It takes a pretty substantial PED penalty not to pick Cano.

8.5, 7.7, 7.6, 7.5, 6.1, 5.0, 1.5, 1.2, -0.3, DNP Josh Donaldson
7.8, 7.2, 6.7, 6.5, 5.9, 5.6, 5.6, 3.5, 2.2, DNP Adrian Beltre
7.6, 7.3, 7.1, 6.5, 5.2, 5.1, 4.7, 0.6, 0.0, -0.7 Miguel Cabrera
8.2, 7.2, 6.2, 3.9, 3.4, 3.3, 3.3, 2.5, 2.4, 2.0 Evan Longoria

7.1, 6.9, 6.7, 5.7, 3.5, 3.1, 2.3, 1.6, DNP, DNP Manny Machado
7.1, 6.6, 5.8, 5.7, 5.6, 4.1, 3.8, DNP, DNP, DNP Nolan Arenado
6.6, 6.3, 5.9, 4.2, 3.9, 0.4, 0.0, DNP, DNP, DNP Anthony Rendon
7.4, 6.1, 6.1, 3.6, 1.9, DNP, DNP, DNP, DNP, DNP Kris Bryant

-0.3 by Josh is his 14 game cup of coffee with 7 games at C, only the 7.3 and 7.1 for Miggy are at 3B, 5.7 by Manny is mostly at SS, 0.4 and 0.0 by Anthony are mainly at 2B. Seems silly to try to squeeze Miggy in here with at least similar options.

CF is Mike Trout.

7.9, 6.9, 6.1, 5.4, 4.9, 3.8, 2.7, 2.5, 1.4, -0.5 Andrew McCutchen
7.2, 6.9, 5.4, 4.9, 3.1, 3.0, 2.8, 2.0, 1.7, 0.0 Lorenzo Cain
7.7, 6.9, 5.7, 4.4, 3.8, 2.0, 1.8, 1.2, 1.1, 0.9 Ryan Braun
8.3, 7.0, 6.7, 4.8, 4.3, 3.8, 1.4, 1.1, -1.4, DNP Jose Bautista
7.9, 6.5, 5.4, 4.1, 4.0, 3.8, 2.8, 2.6, 2.6, 0.4 Giancarlo Stanton
10.9, 9.7, 6.8, 6.4, 5.9, 2.3, DNP, DNP, DNP, DNP Mookie Betts

6.6, 6.4, 5.8, 5.5, 3.5, 2.2, 2.0, 2.0, 1.6, 1.3 Jason Heyward
7.3, 6.5, 6.3, 4.3, 2.8, 2.4, 1.4, 0.9, 0.1, -0.5 Alex Gordon
7.6, 5.8, 5.1, 5.0, 4.6, 3.7, 3.3, 2.0, 0.4, -0.1 Ben Zobrist
7.6, 7.1, 5.4, 4.2, 4.0, 3.6, 1.7, DNP, DNP, DNP Christian Yelich
7.5, 5.5, 5.0, 3.5, 2.5, 2.3, 0.0, DNP, DNP, DNP Kevin Kiermaier
8.1, 5.5, 5.4, -0.4, DNP, DNP, DNP, DNP, DNP, DNP Aaron Judge

7.6, 5.1 and 3.7 by Ben he doesn't have 40% of games at any OF position. Ben Zobrist most likely makes the All-Decade Roster for versatility. If Cano isn't picked at 2B then Braun can't be picked for OF.

7.6, 7.3, 7.1, 6.5, 5.2, 5.1, 4.7, 0.6, 0.0, -0.7 Miguel Cabrera
7.7, 7.4, 7.0, 6.6, 6.6, 5.9, 4.0, 3.5, 1.9, 1.6 Joey Votto
6.5, 6.1, 5.7, 4.4, 4.4, 3.3, 3.2, 2.4, 1.5, -0.2 Freddie Freeman
8.7, 7.1, 5.9, 5.4, 4.7, 4.6, 3.4, 2.8, 0.4, DNP Paul Goldschmidt
6.4, 5.5, 5.2, 4.2, 3.9, 2.8, 2.7, 2.2, -0.4, DNP Anthony Rizzo

7.3, 7.1 and 0.0 by Miggy he doesn't have 40%+ of games at 1B.

RF - Mookie Betts 3629 PA, 301/374/519
1B - Joey Votto 6150 PA, 306/428/516
CF - Mike Trout 5273 PA, 305/419/581
DH - Miguel Cabrera 5795 PA, 317/399/544
LF - Christian Yelich 4043 PA, 301/383/492
3B - Adrian Beltre 5253 PA, 307/358/514
2B - Robinson Cano 6228 PA, 300/359/496
C - Buster Posey 5136 PA, 302/371/458
SS - Andrelton Simmons 4153 PA, 268/316/380

Out of the 33 players only Lindor and Zobrist are switch hitters and the LHB are: Votto, Freeman, Yelich, Cano, Rizzo, Gordon, Heyward and Kiermaier. That got Yelich the last spot over McCutchen or Stanton.
   9. Walt Davis Posted: January 02, 2020 at 01:27 AM (#5912262)
Yeah, among position players for the decade, Cano is #2 in bWAR, #3 in bWAA and #5 by fWAR. For the decade, he's 16 bWAR, 12 bWAA and 11 fWAR ahead of Altuve. There's no way he wasn't 2B of the decade.

Assuming a natural progression to the end of their careers, is that entire team HOF? When you are the best at your position for a decade, you would think so. I think Donaldson is not. The rest are either slam dunks or could go either way?

Between 2014-19


Pet peeve -- I always change "between" to "from" in such constructions, because strictly speaking -- at least to me -- between 2014 & 2019 = 2015-2018.
   13. Walt Davis Posted: January 02, 2020 at 03:43 PM (#5912422)
Assuming a natural progression to the end of their careers, is that entire team HOF?

Probably not although they will mostly come close. (though I'm not entirely sure which set of players you're referring to). The issues:

Posey -- quite possibly his career is pretty much done and he's on only 42 WAR (he's 33, how much more is he likely to add?) Simmons helps and if they induct Mauer easily maybe Posey will be able to build support but at the moment he's Munson.

Cano -- HoF except for roids

Andrelton -- News flash to me: Simmons has never been an AS. If Vizquel makes it obviously Simmons' chances improve tremendously. But DRS/UZR/whatever, I don't get the sense that regular people are putting him close to the Ozzie class which it seems is where you need to be for a defense-only SS inductee.

Tulo -- nope.

McCutchen -- He needs a big rebound (kinda easy seeing him as a Torii Hunter). It was a nice peak but not all that impressive by CF standards. JAWS currently puts him #33 with work to do to catch up even to Lynn and he's 12 WAR behind Wynn. Even his WAR7 peak is only 23rd and behind all of those guys too. The HoF path of a CF is a tough one.

Braun -- even without PEDS, he'd have little shot. He's only at 48 WAR, is turning 36, looking toasty-ish. Only at 7200 PA, fewer than 2000 hits, fewer than 400 HRs, etc.

Votto -- This will be interesting to watch. Might need to be the next saber cause. He's at 60 WAR but turning 36. He got a late start so none of the counting stats are there (<8000 PA, <2000 H, <300 HR, <1000 RBI). But he does currently have the magical 300/400/500 slash line and a MVP (and good finishes) and some AS. A test of how much the electorate will have changed over the years.

Pitchers are always tough to predict because usage is always changing. Even Verlander isn't quite to 3000 innings yet and still 75 wins from 300. The easy election of Halladay should clear the path for the modern low-inning SP stud with hardware but I don't know what the lower-bound for that is going to be.

Miggy, Trout and Beltre are easily in of course and Cano would be. Verlander and Kershaw for sure, I think Scherzer's in, Greinke must be very close if he's not in yet, Sale has some work to do, Strasburg has work to do. I think CC makes it but this wasn't his "decade."

I looked at position players in another thread here somewhere. This "decade" was a bit underwhelming in comparison to others. Trout of course more than meets the standards of a decade leader but, the way things worked out, this decade's position player performances thinned out much more quickly than other recent decades. So "best" in this decade is generally not as impressive as in decade's past. I think it's just randomness -- guys who were really good at the start of the decade mostly didn't age particularly well; we've had an onslaught of awesome-looking young players but they were only here for the 2nd half of the decade; not enough great players debuted around 2008. For position players, this decade looks a bit like the 80s which produced a HoF lull (2010s pitchers fared better than 80s pitchers though). Anyway, some WAR rankings.

2010s
Trout 72
Cano 54
Votto 52
Beltre 51
Donaldson 45
Miggy 43

2000s
ARod 78
Pujols 74
Bonds 59
Helton 53
Beltran 51
Ichiro 51
Chipper 51
7 more players between 43 and 48 WAR

1990s
Bonds 80
Griffey 68
Bagwell 57
Biggio 53
Thomas 53
Larkin 53
Edgar 52
8 more players 44-50

1980s
Rickey 71
Boggs 60
Schmidt 57
Yount 55
Trammell 53
Ozzie 52
Ripken 50 (pretty good set of SS)
8 more players 43-50

The upshot is that we have a lot of weak ballots coming up over the next 15 years or so. Probably enough top-end talent that there will be some easy 1st ballot inductees but the backlogs will be pretty unimpressive by historical standards. That of course might help somebody like McCutchen even though he's clearly a worse candidate than, say, Rolen or Walker. How many voters are really willing to submit ballots with just 0-2 selections?

An example of the randomness of "decades" -- Miggy doesn't look HoF impressive in either the 2000s or the 2010s. His "decade" was 56 WAR from 2005-14. He's 3rd (Pujols, Utley) for that decade. Utley being another example of a guy who gets overlooked by "decade."

The article is titled all decade LINEUP, not all decade TEAM. (Maybe it was edited in the original article ?) So the headline here does not match the headline of the article.

15 - Damn. That’s a pet peeve of mine when people post stuff here. I wonder if the title changed or if I just ###### it up.

EDIT: Based on the link the error was mine.

was it a banner decade for 3b?

Nope (using WAR), that was the 80s with Boggs (60), Schmidt (57) and Brett had 48. It continues on with Molitor 38 (nearly 700 games there), Bell 35, Wallach 32, Lansford 31 and 4 more guys in the 20-25 range. That's 3 of the 5 best 3B of all-time (including the best) plus another HoFer in Molitor plus a top HoVG candidate in Bell.

For comparison, Machado 37, Arenado 39. Miggy had just 310 games at 3B in the decade but still Boggs > Beltre, Schmidt > Donaldson, Brett > Miggy ... Molitor and Bell just a bit behind Arenado and Machado. If we drop Molitor we clearly drop Miggy so that doesn't change things.

Of course Machado and Arenado missed chunks of the decade but so did Boggs and the three guys in the 20-25 range (two because they were old to start with). M & A might well make the HoF someday (Donaldson probably not due to very late start) but that will be because their "decade" will be more like 2015-2024 and, if they make it, they will probably end up around 30-35 WAR for the 2020s. But Buddy Bell's "decade" was 1975-84 with a very solid 51 WAR and Brett had a decade of 63 (would have been higher if not for the 81 strike). Which is another point in that players in the 80s and 90s missed time due to work stoppages so their decade WAR totals could be bumped up 2-3 WAR in most cases.

Seriously ... the whole left side in the 80s -- 4 great SS (Yount just over 500 games so questionable) and 3 great 3B, in the top 8 of the decade by bWAR.

EDIT: Unless we want to call them both "banner" decades which is fine by me.

Debut since 1951 (Mays/Mantle) most position WAR in 10 consecutive seasons so it skips over years typically because of military service if they don't play at all, allows players to qualify if their last 9/8/7 seasons qualify but not if their first 9/8/7 seasons qualify:

90+: Willie Mays x5
80+: Barry Bonds x9, Willie Mays x8, Hank Aaron x5, Mickey Mantle x3, Albert Pujols x2, Alex Rodriguez x2
70+: Barry Bonds x13, Willie Mays x11, Hank Aaron x10, Alex Rodriguez x7, Mickey Mantle x6, Mike Schmidt x5, Albert Pujols x4, Rickey Henderson x3, Eddie Mathews x2, Mike Trout x2
60+: Barry Bonds x14, Hank Aaron x12, Willie Mays x12, Alex Rodriguez x10, Mike Schmidt x8, Rickey Henderson x7, Mickey Mantle x7, Roberto Clemente x6, Eddie Mathews x6, Joe Morgan x6, Albert Pujols x6, Frank Robinson x6, Carl Yastrzemski x6, Jeff Bagwell x4, Wade Boggs x4, Ken Griffey Jr x4, Ron Santo x4, Cal Ripken Jr x3, Mike Trout x3, George Brett x2, Johnny Bench x1, Gary Carter x1

Those 22 players are 14 first ballot Hall of Famers; Gary Carter 42.3%, Jeff Bagwell 41.7%, Barry Bonds 36.2%, Eddie Mathews 32.3% and Ron Santo 3.9% ballot debuts; Alex Rodriguez, Albert Pujols and Mike Trout.
