Grey's recap of the top 20 third basemen according to ESPN's player rater:

The tables below show Grey's preseason ranking, # of leagues they were drafted in, the average draft position of those selected in all 38 leagues, and the earliest and latest each was selected (ND = Not Drafted).

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

I'm really glad that I was one of the fortunate ones to have drafted David Wright in the first round...

@ AdmiralTrey: Yeah, that turned out to be 1 of the 3 worst picks in round 1 (Hanley, Crawford) in that league. Though, from the numbers I have been posting, it seems you can come back from just about any bad pick (Hanley seems to be an exception) if you are lucky the rest of the draft.

Here is a look at the top-drafted eligible third basemen, and where the teams that drafted them ended up in the standings. [Included Kevin Youkilis, since I think most were drafting him with the belief he would quickly earn 3B eligibility].
