Pitchers and catchers report in a couple of weeks in Scottsdale. As we all wait for that to happen, I thought it would be interesting to think about who you thought was the best third baseman in Arizona Diamondbacks history? John Gambadoro and Dave Burns from Sports 620 KTAR put up their own fantasy rosters today, but I want to throw it out to you to decide position by position, now tackling the third base position.
Third base has had a lot of comings and goings. There are many people I could put up for vote, but I put up five only. The Dbacks have had a couple of good ones. Matt Williams, Mark Reynolds for his first couple of seasons, Chad Tracy early on. Even Shea Hillenbrand had a crack at it. Who knows, maybe Melvin Mora will even be mentioned in this group? Ok, not holding my breath with that one. Craig Counsell would be a sentimental favorite and could have been placed a three different positions, but ultimately was thrown in at third base. I am going with Williams.
