The Orioles had #1 and #2

There has never been a better bagman at 3rd than Brooks Robinson. When Cal Ripken was moved to 3rd, he became the 2nd best of all time.

Funny story: when the Yanks proposed to ARod that he move to 3rd, he called Cal Ripken for advice. Ripken knew that ARod was closing in on his shortstop home run record and was delighted to hear that ARod was seeking advice. He said, "by all means, ARod; it'll extend your career!"
