I'm not going to insult your intelligence when it comes to Tuesday's pending disabled list activations for prominent third basemen Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants panda Pablo Sandoval. Both are going to hit like top-10 options at their position and I have little reason to believe either is headed back to the infirmary anytime soon. Trust them both. If choosing between them, I would go with Zimmerman, but I wouldn't call him a top-30 player like draft day, either.
The real conundrum for many fantasy owners is who to cut at the hot corner. I see the e-mails, tweets and other forms of communication/whining all the time and I feel like some of the names being discussed warrant further investigation. For example, it seems like everyone with Hanley Ramirez -- he comes back Tuesday as well! -- owns Los Angeles Dodgers scrapper Jamey Carroll. OK, cut Carroll. Here are the third basemen that might be your version of Mr. Carroll.
