|LONGO will be dominant in 2012|
Unlike our past two rankings the Third Base position is chalk full of solid players. We feel the position is ten deep with difference making players. We have no issue whatsoever with waiting on a third baseman while gobbling up other weaker positions. The cream of the third base crop is Evan Longoria, followed closely by Mega Masher Jose Bautista. Either player would look great in your everyday lineup, but we like Longo just a bit better as he has it all. Barring injury he is a possible top 5 guy overall.
Brett Lawrie - This young gun is full of talent and was lights out in his stint with the Jays last season.
Pablo Sandoval - He has Lasik in the off season and was already coming off a fine season.
Mike Moustakas - Lit it up at the end of last season and is unquestioned starting third baseman in KC.
Mark Reynolds - Is an all or nothing guy. Kills you in strikeouts and average but doesn't even drive in all that many runs.
Chase Headley - Weak hitter and injury prone.
