MLB All Decade Team 1920s

C Mickey Cochrane
1B Jim Bottomley
2B Rogers Hornsby Over Frankie Frisch
3B Pie Traynor
SS Joe Sewell

OF Harry Heilmann
OF Tris Speaker Over Ty Cobb
U George Sisler
RHP Burleigh Grimes

  1. On 1B are you crazy? Lou Gehrig was 100 times better than Jim Bottomley, even if he only became a regular in 1925.

  2. True but Gehrig didn't take off until '27, so that leaves him with just three dominant seasons. Bottomley was great (though not the elite player Gehrig was) from '23 through '29, so I think he's a better fit for the decade
