With the '00's almost behind us, it's time to take a look back and work together to make a BCB All Decade team for the '00s. Each day, we'll tackle a new position, and we'll have our 25 man roster complete sometime around the 1st of the year.
The concept here is pretty simple. Each day, I'll give you a list of candidates: For position players, it's the full list of players who appeared in at least 100 games at the position during the '00s. You'll have 48 hours to vote. Today, we're starting at first base, with easily the smallest field of candidates. The nominees are:
Seasons as a Brewer: 4, 2000-2003
Slash line as a Brewer: .276/.366/.536
UZR (Fielding) as a Brewer: -10.6 runs*
WAR as a Brewer: 10.2
* - FanGraphs only has UZR data since 2002, so this number does not reflect Sexson's 2000 and 2001 performances.
Seasons as a Brewer: 2, 2004-2005
Slash line as a Brewer: .289/.376/.464
UZR (Fielding) as a Brewer: -12.3 runs

Seasons as a Brewer: 5, 2005-2009
Slash line as a Brewer: .284/.381/.550
UZR (Fielding) as a Brewer: -27.2 runs
WAR as a Brewer: 12.0
