We’ve been looking back at the decade that was in baseball recently. We’ve examined some of the most memorable moments and one of our writers — me! — even picked an All-Decade team. But, hey, what do I know?

Why not consider what a number of MLB players from this decade think too? So we asked a handful of players — some retired stars, some the top of their position in the game right now, some from the next generation.

We gave them a ballot of the top producers at each position for the 2010s and asked for their all-decade selections. There are some tough choices: Buster Posey vs. Yadier Molina at catcher? All that talent at third base? Sure, Mike Trout, but what other outfielders? Some picks might surprise you.

Our panel consisted of:

• Former MVP first baseman Ryan Howard
• Former All-Star outfielder Vernon Wells
• Former All-Star outfielder Cliff Floyd
• A’s shortstop Marcus Semien, a member of this year’s All-MLB team
• Padres closer Kirby Yates, a member of this year’s All-MLB team
• Current D-backs pitcher Kevin Ginkel
• Current Dodgers infielder/outfielder Matt Beaty

They picked a player at each position, three starting pitchers and two relievers. You can make your picks as you watch the video above. Go ahead and leave ‘em in the comment section.
