Top 10 Third Basemen For Fantasy Baseball 2013

10: Pablo Sandoval, SF 3B.  With Sandoval having some injury problems and missing some of the season the numbers were low, but this year I feel a come back and could see a 20+ homer season with over 90 RBI’s. I like the “Panda” this year and could see him going at some high picks. With third base bringing some depth.

9: Aramis Ramirez, Mil 3B.  Ramirez has shed his injury-prone reputation and is now one of the more durable hitters in the league. Many people are really high on him and even I could see him doing some big things and being on the top hitters in the Brewers lineup. I could see a 30 homer season and having around 100+ RBI season. Another great pick in late rounds.

8. Ryan Zimmerman, Wsh 3B.  Zimmerman is one of the most talented all-around third basemen in baseball and many people don’t think he can do much on the offense side of the ball.  I am here to tell you that he brings power, RBI’s, and the average. The injuries have been a big problem in the past years and I think that he can be healthy this year and could bring around 25 homers, 100 RBI’s, and a .285 average.

7. Brett Lawrie, Tor 3B.  He finished his first full season and now comes into this year with a new look Blue Jays and can relax and bring more to the team.  I am really high on Lawrie this season and everyone should look out for him in drafts. He has the potential to restore the 20/20 potential he showed in the minors and was predicted to have a year ago, numbers that would vault him into the upper tier at his position, but be careful assuming that’s what’s coming.

6. Chase Headley, SD 3B.  Most people didn’t see the kind of season Headley came out with last year and we didn’t expect .  How valuable he’d be if the Padres decide to trade him as often rumored. He belongs in the discussion among the most valuable third basemen in fantasy. I think if you can get you’re hands on Headley you would be set.Hanley+Ramirez+Los+Angeles+Dodgers+v+Arizona+C5aCPVwM_ugl

5. Hanley Ramirez, LAD 3B, SS. The perception is Ramirez markedly improved after donning Dodger Blue, but the reality is he was the same player who left Miami. Ramirez’s dual eligibility (3B/SS) adds a bit of value. If you’re willing to incur some risk early, Ramirez can reap a healthy reward. I see a big year on him this season.

4. Evan Longoria, TB 3B, DH. I think that he will have a big year and could even be better than people are saying.  If you could try to pick him up in the mid rounds.  At best the third round.  He is a great pick in any league.

3. Adrian Beltre, Tex 3B, DH.  There is really noting much I can say about Beltre, he could be at #2 on my list if he wanted to, he could also be the top player at the end of the season. He has power, average, and can bring in runs like no other. I may be a first couple round pick from me.

2. David Wright, NYM 3B. The Mets’ clear franchise player after they signed him during the winter to an eight-year, $138 million extension through 2020, Wright has proven himself well worth the label after adapting his game to the team’s more pitching-friendly ballpark.  Most people are high on Wright and I think that he could come out with a big year.  Look out for him the first couple rounds.

1. Miguel Cabrera, Det 3B.  Accomplishments like the Triple Crown matter in fantasy baseball, and apparently in the awards races, too, as Cabrera won the American League’s MVP award after becoming the first to lead his respective league in batting average, home runs and RBIs in 45 years. He will go first round and could get close to another great season. He has a season under his belt with the Tigers and now knows how to hit in the new ball park.

  1. You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I believe I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely vast for me. I am looking forward in your subsequent submit, Ill try to get the dangle of it!
