What decade do you think is the most talented in baseball history (starting from the live ball era, 1920)?


2000s
-----
C: Joe Mauer
1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Chase Utley
3B: Alex Rodriguez
SS: Derek Jeter
LF: Barry Bonds (post)
CF: Andruw Jones
RF: Ichiro Suzuki
DH: David Ortiz

SP: Randy Johnson
SP: Roy Halladay
SP: Pedro Martinez
SP: Curt Schilling
SP: Mike Mussina
RP: Mariano Rivera (closer)


1990s
-----
C: Ivan Rodriguez
1B: Jeff Bagwell
2B: Craig Biggio
3B: Robin Ventura
SS: Barry Larkin
LF: Barry Bonds (pre)
CF: Ken Griffey Jr.
RF: Larry Walker
DH: Edgar Martinez

SP: Greg Maddux
SP: Roger Clemens
SP: Randy Johnson
SP: Kevin Brown
SP: John Smoltz
RP: Dennis Eckersley (Closer)


1980s
-----
C: Gary Carter
1B: George Brett
2B: Lou Whitaker
3B: Wade Boggs
SS: Cal Ripken Jr.
LF: Rickey Henderson
CF: Robin Yount
RF: Andrew Dawson
DH: Brian Downing

SP: Roger Clemens
SP: Nolan Ryan
SP: Steve Carlton
SP: Dwight Gooden
SP: Bert Blyleven
RP: Goose Gossage (Closer)


Those are just some example line ups (you can make your own on what you think would be the best line up). I'm not quite as familiar with baseball history from the 70s down like I am with the NBA or HW Boxing, so I didn't include the players for those decades. One thing to note is that the game has made some significant changes over the time, such as lowering the mound in the late 60s (which sparked offenses for a little while), as well as adding the DH in the mid-1970s. There has also been new pitching techniques that have been developed over that time, and more money being put into the game, which would IMO put teams that have played in recent decades over the top.

Just from those lists I'd go with the 1990's.....that rotation. Oh my god.

I feel like the 2000's lineup makes up for the difference in rotations. I'll go with them.

By talent, we only get more talented every decade. The 90s rotation is dumb good though. Shocked

Putting Yu Darvish in that convo right now is silly. Justin Verlander belongs there. Darvish may be great and deserving someday, but to put him on the list right now is getting the cart a good lightyear ahead of the horse.

I agree about Darvish, but I think the same can be said for Profar, Harper and ,Trout. All four have less than a full season. One could have a Thurman Munson career ending injury and never play again. Kimbrel and Chapman can be added to that list too. All though based on projects I think DCR has a point in the long run.

Uhh....forgetting a certain SP that is arguably the best in the game (and certainly miles ahead of Yu Darvish, who will never be close to as good as JV)

I forgot Verlander but saying Darvish will never be close to as good as JV is silly. You don't know that. If Darvish cuts his walks down, which is very likely as he gets more accustomed to pitching here, he's as good as any one any given night.

How many rookie pitchers come in and post 5.1 WAR and a K/9 over 10?

Craig Biggio isn't over Roberto Alomar at 2nd, and Yu Darvish is funny.

Carlos Beltran should be the CF over Andruw Jones in the 2000s.

Mike Piazza should be the C over Pudge Rodriguez in the 1990s.
