So, who is going to play 3B next season?

Here are some possibilities for the Yankees next season, in no particular order:

Mike Lowell: The Boston third baseman will be a free agent and is coming off a strong season that saw him hit .324 with 21 homers and 120 RBI. He came up through the Yankees organization and is a proven playoff performer, having just been named World Series MVP.

Robinson Cano: The Yankees could move their hard-hitting second baseman to third base. It is usually easier to find a new second baseman than a third baseman.

Joe Crede: The third baseman of the White Sox played in only 47 games and hit .216 because of injuries and might not be offered a contract by Chicago. But he had 30 homers and 94 RBI in 2006.

Wilson Betemit: The Yankees were eager to obtain the infielder from the Dodgers in July. He hit .224 with four homers and 24 RBI in 37 games.

Miguel Cabrera: The Marlins could be enticed to trade their third baseman. But buyer beware: Cabrera has refused to stay in shape and will soon be more of a DH than a third baseman.

Adrian Beltre: The Mariners owe him $24 million over the next two seasons and could be willing to trade him.
