Heroes of the Zeros: Utility Players

As we move toward wrapping up the decade and the All Decade team, we take a look at the bench over the next two days.  Today, we'll look for the guys that can do it all.  We have two separate votes for you today.  The first is the vote for a utility infielder.  My requirement for utility infielder was that the player must have played at least 10 games at 2 different positions on the infield, not including 1B or catcher.  We won't have a true backup at 1B, but don't worry, Adam Dunn can play there.

The second vote will be for the utility outfielder.  The requirement for that poll is that you must have played at least 10 games at every outfield position.  We need somebody who can handle all the spots because that outfield can be a bit fragile.  The player table for the outfield along with both ballots are after the jump.

Other ballots: Starting Rotation | Bullpen | Catcher | First base | Second base | Third base | Shortstop | Left Field | Center Field | Right Field
