I voted for Schmidt for both offense and defense.
Brooks would get the nod for defense.
Molitor is my favorite.
And I should also mention that I had the same doctor remove my appendix that took out Eddie Mathews'!
Mike Schmidt without a shadow of a doubt. My favorite player of all time. I was devestated when he retired (I'm also from Philly).
I do believe this is the hardest position to choose, because the candidates are so remarkable.
Brooks Robinson,Though I was a big Mike Schmidt fan.
Hands down Mike Schmidt. Yes all the players listed are amazing. But Mike... wow...
Yeah I am honoured to have seen him play. With Pete Rose no less.
<--- is not worthy
Easy, Mike Schmidt.
Schmidt is far above any other third baseman, though Brett was also a tempting vote.
Brooks Robinson was a human vacuum cleaner at 3rd base. That being said, I believe Schmidt still beats him by quite a ways, I would rank George Brett 3rd of these 3 players who are better than all the others.
Any Cubbie fans?
Ron Cey! JK.
Tinker/Evers/Chance - who was the 3rd baseman there?
Tinker was the 3rd baseman. Evers 2nd. Chance 1st. Why do I have a nagging feeling that maybe Tinker played short?
Any more thoughts here?
Any current players moving onto the list here?
Mike Schmidt but Scott Rollen will eventually beat him out.
I'm gonna go with a write-in - Ron Santo. Better defensively than anyone on that list (except Brooks), and hit as well or better than anyone except Schmidt.
