2014 Third Base Rankings

I'm a bit behind. I have a 4 week old son who was a little under the weather last week. Hope to finish these up soon.

From part 1 on Catchers:

The problem I have with most ranking listings is they are based on gut reactions to players and their likelihood to succeed. That’s fine to get a ballpark I suppose, but why don’t we use projections to calculate a player’s value to our team? Many websites take the time to make up these projections and then proceed to rank the players in an order that doesn’t match. I understand some players have more "upside", but that should be considered in the projection. If we are making a call that a player should be taken before another, why aren’t we making a call on their stats for the year?
