Third base finally showed signs of a glimmer in 2012 fantasy baseball.  There were a good ten 3rd basemen and another handful that could’ve covered your corner infidel slot.  The only shizzy thing was that there were more than a few complete curveballs.  Bautista, A-Rod, Moustakas, Reynolds and Sandoval, to name a few, were hot garbage and Headley, Encarnacion, Chris Davis and Pedro Alvarez came relatively out of nowhere.  Also, a lot of them were first basemen or 2nd basemen or shortstops, so it wasn’t like they were hanging out on waivers looking for room on peoples’ teams.  Then there’s Ryan Zimmerman who made me look smart in opposite world.  Also, to recap, this final ranking is from our Fantasy Baseball Player Rater with my comments.  The Player Rater allows me to be impartial while looking at how I ranked them in the preseason.  Anyway, here’s the top 20 3rd basemen for 2012 fantasy baseball and how they compare to where I originally ranked them:

1. Miguel Cabrera – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2012 fantasy baseball.

2. Edwin Encarnacion - Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2012 fantasy baseball.

3. Chase Headley – Absolutely insane year from Headley.  He had a year that you would’ve loved to get from A-Rod three years ago when he was off the juice, but still in his prime.  He had a year that would’ve gave you the ball tingles if you got it from David Wright.  His HR/FB% was sky high, literally.  His counting stats would’ve been good from a middle of the order hitter on the Yankees and he did it in Petco with the Padres.  His strikeouts actually went up from previous three years; his line drives went down and his ground balls went up.  So, is this year repeatable?  More to come from January Grey.  January Grey, “It’s a lot of pressure you’re putting on me.”  Preseason Unranked, Final Numbers: 95/31/115/.286/17

4. Adrian Beltre – Aside from Miggy with his hope of getting 3rd base eligibility and Aramis, Beltre was one of the easiest pick to make at 3rd base.  You could’ve drafted Wright, but he was coming off a terrible 14-homer season.  There was Hanley, but he too was coming off crizzap.  Zimmerman, Trumbo… There were question marks all over the position like the Riddler’s leotards.  Preseason Rank #4, 2012 Projections:  75/28/100/.280/3, Final Numbers: 95/36/102/.321/1

5. Aramis Ramirez – As briefly alluded to above, besides an injury-shortened season, Aramis has provided nearly identical power for almost ten straight seasons.  He’s only hit below .250 one year and that was just a weird outlier with bad luck.  He’s one of those guys that gives you exactly what you expect until he no longer does.  How’s that for some confirmation bias?  Preseason Rank #9, 2012 Projections:  75/25/95/.295, Final Numbers: 92/27/105/.300/7

6. David Wright – I’ve already beat this horse dead about me telling you to sell him back at the end of May that the point is now glue, so let me just say this.  In the huge swings of value up and down through the course of the season, you either trust my projections or don’t.  Wright wasn’t ever a .380 hitter who was on pace for 30 homers.  He was a .300, 24 homer, 15 steal guy with some standard rate of deviance.  Always has been, always will be.  Preseason Rank #3, 2012 Projections:  85/24/100/.290/15, Final Numbers: 91/21/93/.306/15

7. Hanley Ramirez – Went over him in the top 20 shortstops for 2012 fantasy baseball.

8. Mark Trumbo – Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2012 fantasy baseball.

9. Ryan Zimmerman – Speaking of trusting my projections, I should’ve.  Let me take you back to June.  Zimmerman had 3 homers on the year and was coming off a season of 12 homers.  He was nursing a sore shoulder, and we were looking at a guy whose name value looked to be 20+ homers, but at that point 10 homers seemed like a pipe dream.  Oh, and he was hitting in the .230′s.  Then he got a shot of cortisone.  I can’t remember someone turning a season around so dramatically from a shot of steroids since… Well, everyone, but it’s been about 5 years.  Preseason Rank #6, 2012 Projections:  80/27/100/.290/5, Final Numbers: 93/25/95/.282/5

10. Chris Davis - Went over him in the top 20 1st basemen for 2012 fantasy baseball.

11. Kyle Seager - Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2012 fantasy baseball.

12. Martin Prado – 17 steals from Prado is a new career high by 12 steals, that’s including the minors.  6 of those came in May.  In related news, the Atlanta Braves gave away free Red Bulls to the first nine players to arrive to the stadium in the month of May.  Preseason Rank #20, 2012 Projections:  80/12/70/.300/5, Final Numbers: 81/10/70/.301/17

13. David Freese – Here’s a little Razzball behind the scenes director’s commentary.  In the preseason, I wrote a David Freese overrated post (and one for Matt Kemp), but I didn’t publish them.  I figured coming off his huge October in 2011, Freese was going to be wildly overrated.  Nope, didn’t happen.  People were more conservative than I gave them credit for, and maybe too conservative, considering the year Freese ended up having.  (I’ll talk about the Kemp one when we get to the outfielders.)  Preseason Rank #19, 2012 Projections:  55/15/65/.290, Final Numbers: 70/20/79/.293/3

14. Pedro Alvarez – I told you he was going to be a huge breakout (in 2011)!  How was I supposed to know Alvarez had a nice pedigree, but no sense of urgency?  The only player he trailed in strikeout percentage was Adam Dunn, who hit .204.  I.e., Alvarez was a burp away from hitting .200.  Alvarez needs to cut his strikeout rate by about five percent or never drink anything carbonated.  Preseason Rank #25, 2012 Projections:  60/18/75/.240, Final Numbers: 64/30/85/.244/1

15. Alex Rodriguez – I’m not saying the Yankees regret their $275 million A-Rod contract, but the other day I saw an ad on Craigslist selling a 3rd baseman that can’t stay healthy, who used to be one of the best in the game and has a penchant for women with a washboard chest.  Preseason Rank #8, 2012 Projections: 70/24/85/.270/5, Final Numbers: 74/18/57/.272/13

16. Daniel Murphy – Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2012 fantasy baseball.

17. Jose Bautista – If I knew all it would take to knock Bautista back to earth was me to trust him, I would’ve two years ago.  Prepare yourself for the Edwin Encarnacion 2013 sleeper reverse psychology post.  Preseason Rank #1, 2012 Projections:  100/38/105/.265/10, Final Numbers:  64/27/65/.241/5

18. Mike Aviles - Went over him in the top 20 2nd basemen for 2012 fantasy baseball.

19. Trevor Plouffe - Went over him in the top 20 shortstops for 2012 fantasy baseball.

20. Mike Moustakas – Not a terrific season by any stretch of the imagination, but let’s stretch our imaginations anyway.  If 15 bloop singles would’ve dropped in — two and a quarter hits per month — Moustakas would’ve hit his projections on the nose.  Though quarter hits are only something his teammate Billy Butler gets when he runs two feet down the first base line then stops, complaining that his mansierre is chafing him.  Preseason Rank #15, 2012 Projections:  60/20/80/.270/4, Final Numbers: 69/20/73/.242/5

          See, when you’re trying to talk to a female, it’s all suave and shizz but when your friends laugh is when the girl gets embarrassed and stops sending you the vapors…

  4. No mention of Longoria – still bitter at all the leagues he cost us, huh?

    Will say this for Longoria – when healthy, he was great. His half season projects to 80/35/110/.290 which probably puts him at #5 on the list. January Grey is going to have a tough time passing him up in the late 2nd round…

    For the record, Beltre and Aramis still scare the bejesus out of me as early draft picks given their age – 34/35 – and the history of 3Bs falling off a cliff in their 30′s (Santo and Rolen are two examples. A-Rod’s had 30 HRs at 34 and 34 HRs combined in his 35-36 years).

        @Grey, I agree with Rudy in saying away from roid boy and cheap cologne. I went out on a limb and went with wright this year, he didn’t prove me wrong. It’s sad the David Wright was my best draft pick.

            @Grey, I am sorta part of that group, so yes we know. I think the hardest thing for Mets fan is the Duda

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Is “The Duda” a metaphor or you mean the doodie?

      • @Grey, That’s true – especially for Beltre. That’s because he has overperformed everyone’s projections the last 3 years. His OPS+ the last 3 years (31-33) have been his 2nd-4th highest in his career (besides his amazing 2004 48 HR, 9.3 WAR season). Guess the Seattle weather just got him down.

        You definitely were proven right giving them (#26 – Beltre, #55 – Aramis) such high rankings this year. But you were also much higher than me on the other two 30+ 3Bs – Youk and A-Rod.

        Will be interesting to see Beltre/Aramis’ 2013 projections…

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Think it’s gonna be hard to go against Beltre and Aramis until they show serious decline… If you predict regression for them at this point, you’re just guessing they’re gonna get old over night…

          • @Grey, Each projection system is a little different in how they project declines by age but I’m following the consensus on this one.

        • Jack Full of Hate says:
          (link)

          @Rudy Gamble, I’ll be watching their numbers on someone else’s team. I would still take Longo every year ahead of those guys and if thats what makes me lose then so be it. But the year i draft Beltre or Aramis is the year they become old and below average. I would take Aramis as a bargain in the 8th or 9th round, but that’s not going to happen next year after what he did this year.

          • @Jack Full of Hate, I agree. I think 3B might be the most interesting position (along with 1B) for top 8 round drafting next year. If I strike out because of fluke injuries (this year with Votto/Longoria as my RCL #1/#2), I can live with it because both were good values at their draft position. It’s the ‘overdrafts’ that come in Rounds 3-6 that I want to avoid – e.g., how Grey bemoans the Hosmer pick, anyone who picked A-Rod/Youk/etc. I’m hoping Beltre/Aramis go 2nd round/4th round respectively so the draft board stays open.

            • Jack Full of Hate says:
              (link)

              @Rudy Gamble, I hear that and i think people fail to recognize/remember that value can be had in the early rounds. The difference is when you can’t believe I got that guy with the 42nd pick when he should have been drafted with the 38th pick. That is what helps. The interesting thing about next year is you get new guys into the first round (Trout, Dread, Giancarlo) and guys that will drop out (Upton, Gonzo) and how this impacts those early round value picks. then what do you do with Tulo, Bautista and Longo? Will Goldschmidt and Butler next year get as much love as Hosmer this year? what do we do with Chris Davis, he scares the crap out of me and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

              Damn, i think I just got excited about next year’s draft and the rose colored glasses some might wear on draft day. Thank you me

    Why do most baseball fans regard Jeter in God-like fashion, but wanna piss all over A-Rod? I kinda know the answer, but isn’t it a bit extreme in both directions? And fairly ironic. I feel BAD for A-Rod. (A-Rod is also better looking. Yes, even with his purple lips.)

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      A-Rod has terrible taste in women, blamed his cousin for steroids, never seen as clutch, smacked Arroyo’s glove like he was a girl (no offense), A-Rod longs for Jeter’s attention which he doesn’t give him, and A-Rod makes more money than him… I can make my lips purple.

      • Molly Lee says:
        (link)

        @Grey, Didn’t A-Rod date Kate Hudson? She’s not “terrible taste”, is she? Or is that where the “washboard chest” comes in? Did A-Rod also date Joe Girardi’s wife, too? It sure seems like it, from the way Girardi is treating him on the national stage. I feel BAD for him. I hope the Yankees get swept, with a couple more shutouts. But it will still be A-Rod’s fault. lol.

        • TheNewGuy says:
          (link)

          @Molly Lee, As a Yankees fan I feel bad for A-Rod too, but you can’t blame Joe as the guy is a mess at the plate right now, and isn’t “A-Rod” anymore. Haven’t got time to let people play outta funks now, if they aren’t firing on all cylinders at this stage then they’re out.

          I wish A-Rod could have at least been adequate after his big 2009 postseason too, to feel better for him and also to shut the stupid journalists up. But since then he’s been anaemic in the playoffs yet again, in spots when the Yankees needed him most. When you’re on that much money you’re gonna get critisised, especially when things aren’t going well… don’t blame Joe for benching him tonight.

          Agreed with you on Kate Hudson though lol, she is fit.

          • Molly Lee says:
            (link)

            @TheNewGuy, Isn’t Eric Chavez in a “funk” himself? Hitless in the series, and he looked like a Little Leaguer backing away from that groundball that cost the Yankees that second run? Chavez has especially looked horrible flailing against left-handed pitching, with A-Rod still sitting on the bench. Girardi has treated A-Rod like a little bitch in the postseason. It’s been shamefully disrespectful of a surefire Hall-of-Famer. Plus my daddy always taught me: “Ya dance with the guy with brung ya!!”

          Kate Hudson is terrible taste if you’re talking about her movies… Maybe A-Rod said something mean about grown men with braces…

            @Grey, I liked Kate Hudson in “Almost Famous” and, ummm, ummmm, ummmm. Nevermind. But she’s still cute. And A-Rod is still cuter than Lord Derek. ;-)

    I just went with the bulk approach for 3b this year. Drafted (auction) lawrie and a-rod (cost more than their value, but wasn’t ridiculous) and snagged Freese for $2. my 1b was tex, so that sucked, but by taking those 3b, i knew i could get by on the 3b and CI positions.

    Well, well. Magnificent outing from Verlander, but I’m not really sure why, if you’re Girardi, you let Ibanez face Coke.

    He must REALLY want to punish A-Rod and Swisher…

    • Grey

      (link)

      Trying to cement A-Rod’s reputation of being the-unclutch… Seriously, pretty crazy he benched A-Rod and Swisher… Maybe Girardi’s trying to get fired…

      • TheNewGuy says:
        (link)

        @Grey, I don’t see a problem necessarily with benching them they way they’ve been hitting, but not to pinch hit Rauuul with one of them seems very strange. I don’t think Ibanez has done much of his damage of lefties has he? One of A-Rod or Swish should’ve pinch hit then.

        Joe clearly has no confidence in either of them getting it done right now…

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, I think if you pinch hit Raul after what he’s been recently in the playoffs would be second guessed big time, as well… I think those guys should’ve just been in the game… It’s like getting to the H2H playoffs and dropping everyone for randoms off waivers that just happened to have a hit the game before… Only slight difference, the randoms will have to face Verlander…

            @Grey, From Joe Sheehan on Twitter:

            Raul Ibanez on road (no YS3, no CBP) against LHP, 2010-2012: .161/.195/.252 in 164 PA. 49/6 K/BB.

            According to someone on Twitter yesterday, Leyland was on his way to get Coke, but saw Ibanez was going to stay in, so he turned around and went back to the dugout…

                I still don’t think it’s that clear cut… If Ibanez is lifted for one of two guys that have been recently terrible, then they continue to be terrible, everyone says “How do you lift Raul? He’s been so hot in the late innings!” It’s hindsight, I think…

    Grey,

    Appreciate the advice throughout the season.

    I’m tyring to imagine how cool it would have been if you preseason ranked Headley #1 and left Bautista Unranked and turned out right. You said many times Bautista would tank as soon as you ranked him Top 10 and sure enough you’re gut was right. Always next year though.

    Looking forward to March (and reading all offseason too).

    Take care.

    With his terrible start and no home runs in his last 10 games before the injury, Bautista was on pace for 48 HR and 117 RBI. If you picked up Chris Johnson July 17 to replace Jose, you would have finished with 80 Runs, 36 HR, 106 RBI, 6 SB, and a .265 average from your 3B slot.

    I’m pretty bummed that Lawrie didn’t even end up in the top 20 for value, but injuries and under-performance will do that. I’m expecting a bounce back as I assume you are, too, but what’s reasonable to expect? Top 15 3B? Top 10? What’s his upside in a year or two? Top 5?

      I think we should expect top ten for value until he gives top ten then expect top five… He’s gonna be good, and is young, just wasn’t there yet last year. Due to injuries, him plus a waiver wire guy gave you a decent year, probably around top 20…

    Got a question about shortstops, too, if I can drop that in the 3B post: I’m pretty positive JRoll and Desmond won’t be ranked 1-2 for you going into 2013. Which one drops farther? Rollins because of age or Desmond because of his peripherals?

    Who do you think ends up with the better season?

    And is Desmond a good sell-high guy or is he still pretty valuable at the position even if his HRs and average drop next year?

      Desmond will drop down farther… I’d bet on Rollins having a better year next year too… Desmond could be a good sell high, depending on what you can get…

    Beltran out of the game with a knee injury. All that means is that Matt Carpenter will become the hero of the postseason.

    Dear Joe Girardi,

    I’d like to see your Yankees get swept tonight, but since you seem to be struggling so badly with your lineup card, I thought I might help ya out:

    Ichiro Suzuki, lf
    Curtis Granderson cf
    Mark Teixiera, 1b
    Robinson Cano, 2b
    Raul Ibanez, dh
    Alex Rodriguez, 3b
    Nick Swisher, rf
    Russell Martin, c
    Eduardo Nunez, ss

    But, since you seem so intent on trying to over-manage this postseason, why not try catching lightning in a bottle, and bat ARod leadoff tonight? ARod might relish trying to fill Lord Derek’s shoes, and he did have a respectable .344 on-base this season. You’re welcome.

      Ha! I think you have to bench everyone and let the coaches play… Where’s Luis Sojo?!

      • Steve says:

        @Grey, Lineup is thus, apparently…

        1. Ichiro Suzuki*, LF
        2. Nick Swisher#, RF
        3. Robinson Cano#, 2B
        4. Mark Teixeira#, 1B
        5. Raul Ibanez*, DH
        6. Eric Chavez*, 3B
        7. Russell Martin, C
        8. Brett Gardner*, CF
        9. Eduardo Nunez, SS

        No A-Rod, no Grandy.

          They’re sitting Grandy?! Oh, man, Girardi is such a H2H manager right now scrambling…

          • Molly Lee says:
            (link)

            @Grey, I’m thinking your comment about ARod talking trash about “grown men with braces” might be spot-on. Given Girardi’s otherwise irrational treatment of ARod, I’d be very surprised if they haven’t had a shouting match behind closed doors. Eric Chavez isn’t exactly ripping it up this postseason.

              I picture A-Rod obnoxiously chewing gum around Girardi just because Joe can’t…

        @Grey, There doesn’t seem to be too much wrong with his eyesight. I’m surprised he’s not hitting better.

          Yeah, as long as he meant the ball for her and not her friend…

    Yanks-Tigers PPD. I’d call that a win for the Yankees.

            @Grey, Ha. In the interests of fairness, I had the blonde highlights once myself. Though it was the 80s and I was in my early 20s…

    So Lohse gives up 7 hits and 5 walks – and wins the game.

    Yeah, ok.
