  12. Where have all the third basemen gone?

    David Schoenfield

    One reason baseball fans are so excited about Brett Lawrie is that 2011 was a miserable season for third basemen around the majors. Not one full-time third baseman posted a .900 OPS, the first year that's happened since 2002. Third basemen hit jus...

    David Schoenfield
