70's 80's and 90's match up well together.

Hell, you can even count the 60's if you like. I think Napoles, Griffith and Curtis Cokes are the 60's.

The 70's actually is Cuevas, Palomino, among others.

And all era's compete with one another pretty well.

Honestly, it's the 00 that seems lost among all of them. Nothing to be ashamed of, the current era has future HOFamers and ATG's, but the elite of 147 of the previous decades were truly elite.
