If you accept 2001-10 as the first decade of the 21st century, then CC Sabathia was baseballís winningest pitcher, edging Roy Halladay, 157-156.

In AL wins alone, Sabathia led with 146; Mark Buehrle was next with 144. The NL leader was Roy Oswalt with 150 wins.

Whether or not you consider '01-'10 to be a cultural decade, it is indeed a ten year period. I believe Mark will be an unsung hero in the annals of baseball history. However, we'll remember him as being the greatest Sox pitcher in the past twenty or so years.

These decade-leader stats are useless. If you played a full 9-10 of those years and were an everyday, pretty decent player, you're near the top.

The point is that if a player's peak happens at the end of the decade, his stats in both decaded previous and after won't be as impressive.
