RotoGraphs Consensus Ranks: Third Base

Posted By Eno Sarris On March 5, 2013 @ 3:15 pm In Rankings,Third Base,Uncategorized | 23 Comments

It’s time to finish up the infield. Surprisingly perhaps only to me, third base ended up being the deepest position more years than it wasn’t in my FanGraphs+ auction strategy analysis.

There’s probably more agreement at the top of this position than most, at least more than the shortstops. Once you get past the top three or four, the agreement stops, but then you also have a scrum that looks like it could be one single tier, all the way down past twelve. This could be a position you wait on if you miss the top guys in a mixed league. But don’t wait too long in deep league. It gets dicey again in the late twenties.

It looks like I like Brett Lawrie, Mike Moustakas, and Pablo Sandoval better than most. That sounds right.
