The Fake Teamers make the first pass at the hot corner ranks for 2021.

The MLB Hot Stove is getting hot, with Blake Snell being traded from the Rays to the Padres yesterday, in exchange for four prospects. It’s not really a baffling move for Tampa, as we know they are a cost-cutting group. But it’s still deflating for anyone who roots for Tampa and for baseball fans in general. Any system where you trade guys away because they are too good and you don’t want to pay them...just yikes.

Anyway, hopefully more talk of fantasy baseball will serve as a pick-me-up. We’ve been moving slowly through each position, making our first pass at rankings for 2021 as we go. Today is third base, and it is offered up without analysis, for your viewing pleasure only. Though we do welcome your agreements and disagreements in the comments below. We’ll look forward to making our cases for our guys early on in the new year when positional weeks begin here at Fake Teams.
