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.
Here are the players we've selected so far:
First Base: Prince Fielder
Second Base: Rickie Weeks
#1 SP: Ben Sheets
Voting for our final position player opened yesterday and will close at 4 pm Saturday. Today we'll select a left-handed reliever. Four left handed pitchers appeared in at least 100 games in relief in the decade: follow the jump for their stats, then cast your vote in the poll below.
NOTE: Because Thursday and Friday are holidays, this poll will remain open a little longer than usual. You have until Sunday at 4 pm to cast your vote.
