Position Prerankings: RF, SS, 2B

Note: In the mini-series “Position Prerankings,” I’ll go position-by-position for each team in the NL Central and say which projected starter I’d rather have on my team this season, along with a runner up and honorable mention. It should be noted that we’re only talking this year’s production, so age, contract status, likeability of the player as a person, etc is not counted.

Position Prerankings: Third Base

Note: In the mini-series “Position Prerankings,” I’ll go position-by-position for each team in the NL Central and say which projected starter I’d rather have on my team this season, along with a runner up and honorable mention.

My number one pick for third basemen in the NL Central has been in the division for his entire career. In 2012, it’ll be his third team and 15th year in the division. The bottom of the barrel is pretty even, with half of these guys looking for a bounce-back from dismal 2011 seasons.
