I'd agree with that. It seems like there are a ton of good 3B this year, while 1B isn't as potent. While 1B has some absolute studs (Pujols, Helton, Thome) and other great producers (Casey, Ortiz, and I guess the White Sox tandem), I don't think it has the depth of 3B (ARod, Rolen, Lowell, Blalock, Chavez, Aramis, Mora, Castilla, Beltre, and some others with eligibility like MCab and Tex).
I think some big 1B are slumping and that factors in. Shawn Green and Giambi have been putrid.
