Looking back at the free agent class of 2008 which 3rd baseman on the market did you think would have the most impact on winning a championship?  A-Rod off his monster year?  Mike Lowell the reigning World Series MVP?  Try Pedro Feliz, who held down the hot corner for the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies.

The Phillies had been scrounging for an adequate 3rd sacker since the days of Scott Rolen and while Feliz's stats didn't exactly jump off the page during the regular season, he filled his role much like the rest of the Phillies roster in coming over from playing eight seasons with the San Francisco Giants. 

Feliz in 18 World Series at-bats had six hits and two RBI with a .333 batting average and also knocked in the series winning run in Game five. 

So when all the dust settles after "Hot Stove 2009" and the big names have made all their dollars, it will be interesting in the end to see who makes the most sense.
