Fantasy Baseball 2013: Top 30 Third Basemen Heading into Exhibition Play

Detroit's Miguel Cabrera (39 HR, 144 RBI, 109 Runs, .330 BA) is the runaway fantasy choice for preseason No. 1 among third basemen.

The following countdown details my early top 30 third basemen heading into exhibition play, with an emphasis on 5x5 roto leagues.

Of the positional countdowns to date, I've had the most difficulty ranking this group from a tiers perspective.

Miguel Cabrera may be an easy lock for the top spot, but one could then make a case for the next five stars (Adrian Beltre, David Wright, Evan Longoria, Aramis Ramirez, Chase Headley) being classified in any random order.

The same holds true for the players ranked ninth through 16th. There's even some guilt in hanging Cincy's Todd Frazier out to dry at No. 17.

But hey, this is why some owners would rather move heaven and earth to draft Miggy in Round 1, compared to lamenting the risk/reward variations of a supremely talented, but equally flawed group.

Enjoy the show!
