    Mine:

    1. Kris Bryant
    2. Anthony Rondon
    3. Nolan Arenado
    4. Justin Turner
    5. Jose Ramirez

    You could make a case for pretty much any of the top 4. I love Arenado but his numbers are inflated by Coors a little bit. Heís hitting .267 on the road with 23 less HRís in his career.

    Third base is tough.

    1. Bryant
    2. Jose Ramirez
    3. Rendon
    4. Arenado
    5. Donaldson

    HM: Turner...he could easily fit anywhere from 3-5.

    I also think Bregman and Shaw will only get better.

    Seager is also consistently good.

    Tough to leave off Rendon. Turner is right there as well. A healthy Beltre would be in the running too.

    Bryant
    Donaldson
    Arenado
    Machado
    Ramirez

    Bottom of the list tough to decide on. Rendon and Turner could easily be mixed in.

    Hard to know what to do with J. Ramirez as he pretty much split time between 3rd and 2nd all season. Assuming he s slated for 3B this coming year (which I believe is the case) he goes into 4th place and pushes Donaldson out.

    Turner, Machado, Seager, and even Beltre aren't far off even though Beltre's assuredly off these lists at this point.

    I'd probably go

    1.Arendando
    2.Bryant
    3.Rendon
    4.Donaldson
    5.Machado

    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.

    1 Bryant
    2 Arenado
    3 Donaldson
    4 Machado
    5 Ramirez


    I think Bregman really breaks out and cracks the top 5 if this thread is made a year from now

    If it's who do I want as my everyday 3B for just 2018 with contracts and everything else negated, it's:

    1 Bryant
    2 Arenado
    3 Machado
    4 Donaldson
    5 Rendon I guess, but there's like 4 different guys I feel you could easily slot here

    1.) Arenado
    2.) Bryant
    3.) Donaldson
    4.) Machado
    5.) Rendon

    Side note - imagine if the Astros had drafted Bryant? An infield of Bryant, Correa, Altuve would have been one for the history books.

    Why Arenado over Bryant?

    Because I like Arenado more and think he's the best all around 3b in the game?
