    Guys like Jose Rameriez on have 1 elite season, while guys like Beltre are older and I'm less confident.
    But 3rd base is just super deep right now.
    The number of teams with quality to great 3b is as deep as it's ever been.

    In no particular order
    AL West
    Kyle Seager
    Zack Cozart
    Matt Chapman
    Alex Bregman
    Adrian Beltre

    AL Central
    Miguel Sano
    Jose Rameriez
    Nick Castellanos

    AL East
    Manny Mochado
    Josh Donaldson
    Rafael Devers

    NL East
    David Wright
    Anthony Rendon

    NL Central
    Kris Bryant
    Josh Harrison
    Eugenio Suarez
    Jed Gyrko
    Travis Shaw

    NL West
    Nolan Arenado
    Evan Longoria
    Jake Lamb

    This is all the quality 3rd basemen.
    And most the teams that don't have a good 3rd basemen have one in the minors. Like the Braves with Austin Riley or the Padres with Fernando Tatis Jr.
    who?

    What? Go take a look at his numbers and the way he handles 3b on defense. Thats the #1 3b I want on my team. Not sure why you have such an issue with that.

    His numbers are inflated by Coors, but he still produces solid offensive numbers away from Coors. And even if they are inflated, he's still a Rockie and will continue to produce big time numbers while playing strong defense.

    Last 3 years:

    Nolan: 15.6 WAR, .297 AVG, 120 HR, .353 OBP
    Bryant: 21.6 WAR .288 AVG, 93 HR, .388 OBP

    Iím not disputing heís great but putting him over Bryant doesnít make sense to me.

    Bryant doesnít even have to deal with having his numbers inflated and is probably top 5 players in the game. Arenado averages 5 WAR while Bryant averages 7. Arenado might be better defensively but Bryant is a consistent 140 wRC+ hitter.

    Oy. Jumping to the offended remark huh?

    Idk to me, Bryant is leaps and bounds above the competition. Itís something like picking between Trout and Stanton...both are phenomenal but Trout is indisputably the better player.

    I swear this is the most stacked era for 3B possibly of all time

    I think it's the difference in their defense that causes people to pick Nolan over Bryant.

    Nolan and Bryant comparison is more like Trout and Harper than Trout and Stanton.

    Even still, I would assume most people will take Trout.

    If you like Arenado because of defense like ciaban said then I get it. I donít think anybody is as good as him defensiveky (Machado might be a good rival)

    I agree 100! That Bryant is clearly better than Arenado.

    Bryant last two years is 147 wRC+ and 15 war

    Arenado 127 wRC+ and 11 war

    Those numbers are not in the realm of error. Bryant is another level.

    FWIW this is dismissive of bwar's existence. By that measure they have both posted 13.8.

    Arenado is a guy I really hope gets out of Colorado in his prime.
