Best of the Decade: Opponents' Batting Average

The lowest batting average that any pitching staff has allowed this decade was .232 by the 2003 L.A. Dodgers. The 116-win 2001 Mariners finished 2nd at .236.

Don't remember the 2003 Dodgers? They won 85 games, but finished 15 games behind the Giants.

Starting Rotation: Hideo Nomo, Kevin Brown, Odalis Perez, Kaz Ishii with some Wilson Alverez, Darren Dreifort and Andy Ashy mixed in.

Bullpen: Guillermo Mota, Paul Quantrill and Eric Gagne. All had 75+ appearance and a sub .200 ERA. Also, Paul Shuey and Tom Martin.

The best in 2009 is... the Dodgers, with .232, a number that would be the best of the decade if they keep it up.
