Absolute zero is the coldest temperature theoretically possible, but this temperature cannot possibly be reached by any means because no matter how insulated the system, no matter how remote the nebula, nothing can be completely detached from the entropy of the universe. This is oddly comforting and is also the reason that even the Pittsburgh Pirates can have an all-decade team, even without a winning season. You can find the other entries in this series here.
Starting Pitcher: Oliver Perez, 2003-2006
Relief Pitcher: Mike Gonzalez, 2003-2006
Anyone that follows me on Twitter knows I struggled with this one. It's really hard to come up with a Pirate starter that had two good years this decade. Well, besides Kip Wells who, uh, no.
So what criteria do we use here? Kris Benson symbolizes all sorts of failed promise, had some decent years, and had a crazy wife who told us all kinds of things about them we didn't what to know. Zach Duke and Paul Maholm have both spent a pretty decent amount of time in a Pirate uniform this decade with some solid seasons, but some awful ones mixed in. Josh Fogg was reliably mediocre. Mark Redman, Ryan Vogelsong, and Jeff D'Amico were ... also Pirates during this span. Matt Morris was the straw that broke Littlefield's back. That might be the most productive thing any pitcher has done in this span.
