I know what you’re thinking. Thank God Second Base Week is finally over?

No? Maybe it was just me. It did feel like second base dragged on forever. Anyway, it’s time for something new, and that something is Third Base Week! The “hot corner” is typically a place we look to for power, but there are various profiles to be found at this position—along with a “unicorn” guy at the top in Jose Ramirez, a man who can do it all.

Check out our first pass at third base rankings, and give us your best shot with who we ranked too high or too low. We’ll see you in the comments! Fantasy baseball season is nigh, people. It. Is. Nigh.
