I talked all the position players except for Biggio who ended up at 65, which isn’t much of a change. Feller, Roberts, and Ryan got points for being one of the best two pitchers their decade. However, they didn’t get as many points as pitchers I deemed dominated their decade more. I surprised Roberts passed Ryan as I gave him less decade points than Ryan. Roberts got the edge as his clutch statistics were a little better. Blyleven’s clutch points weren’t bad. Niekro faded in part because his long career doesn’t help him as much and in part because he and Blyleven didn’t get any bonus points for being one of the two best pitchers of the decade.
