Brooks Robinson or Mike Schmidt: Who is the greatest third baseman in history?

Leading up to the Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Citi Field in New York this summer, the New York Daily News is running a weekly poll to pick the best player at each position.

The position this week is third baseman. So, Baltimore baseball fans, who is the greatest third baseman in major league history?

As of this post, Orioles legend Brooks Robinson trails the Philadelphia Phillies' Mike Schmidt in the Daily News poll, and the Kansas City Royals' George Brett is a distant third.

But we wanted to run our own poll here in Baltimore, so who do you think is best?
