These NL positions are pretty silly since they seem to have one guy that is head and shoulders above the rest. Third Base seems to be no exception. I'll let you figure out which guy it is here.
- One half of the Killer B's in Pittsburgh, Bonilla started out his career at the hot corner. Bonilla was a two-time All-Star in the 80s and won the Silver Slugger in 1988.
Starting the decade with the Dodgers before doing a 4-year stint with the Cubs, Ron Cey saw the postseason for both teams. In 1981,Cey was named World Series MVP as the Dodgers beat the Yankees in 6. In 1984, Cey helped the Cubs to a Division title and a pennant appearance against the Padres.
- In the first half of the decade, Atlanta's Bob Horner was one of the biggest sluggers in the National League, finishing in the top ten in homers 5 times. Horner also made the postseason with the Braves in 1982 when they met the Cards in the NLCS.
- In the latter half of the 1980's, HoJo wasn't just a hotel chain, it was the Mets 3B. Johnson was a part of the '86 World Champion team and in 89 he led the league in runs and made an All-Star appearance.
- Playing for the Pirates and Dodgers, Madlock led the league twice in AVG and made two All-Star appearances (81,83) and one NLCS appearance (85).
- Before he won an MVP in the 90s with the Braves, Terry was in St. Louis manning the third with his hot glove. Pendleton snagged two Gold Gloves in the 80s and helped St. Louis to two World Series appearances.
- Where should we start? In the decade, Schmidt garnered 6 Gold Gloves, 8 All-Star appearances, 3 NL MVP awards, 1 WS MVP, 6 Silver Sluggers, and led the league in homers 5 times. Oh yeah, he's also in that Cooperstown place.
Playing the entire decade in Montreal, Wallach is sometimes forgotten. Winner of two Gold Gloves, Wallach made the All-Star team 4 times and led the league in doubles twice. He also helped the Expos reach the NLCS in 1981.
