Making Your '00 Face: Corner outfielder

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. Here are the players we've selected so far:

First Base: Prince Fielder
Second Base: Rickie Weeks
Shortstop: J.J. Hardy

Voting for third basemen opened yesterday and will close at 4 pm tomorrow. Over the next few days we're going to jump around a bit: Today we'll unveil the candidates for our first outfield spot. In this case, we're looking at guys who played one of the corners:
