We're down to only two teams that have never had a player finish in the top 10 in the MVP voting in any season in this decade. So: (a) Can you name those teams? And (b) for extra credit, can you identify each team's previous top-10 MVP finisher? (Answer later.)

And the last Pirate other than Bonds to make it into the top 10 of MVP voting is Andy Van Slyke, who finished fourth -- behind Bonds, Terry Pendleton and Gary Sheffield -- in '92.
