    Mike Schmidt. Great hitter, and a much better fielder than a lot of his competition.

    Offensively, I'll take Mike Schmidt, the home run and RBI leader at the position. Defensively, without a doubt it's Brooks Robinson. However, given that Schmidt was not only a world series winning outstanding offensive performer, but was also a standout defensive player in his own right, having won several gold glove awards during his time, I'd take Schmidt as the overall best 3rd baseman in baseball history.

    I'd say Scott Rolen was the best third baseman I ever SAW so its hard for me to pick Schmidt or Robinson over him defensively.

    But overall I'll take Schmidt because of the offense like others have mentioned.

    Well, I wish we got more answers for this position, but I don't think anyone else is going to reply.

    So congratulations to Mike Schmidt for winning the greatest third baseman according to GF.
