Why you should back the Yankees

Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is a big-time slugger with a powerful swing for New York. Stanton has the strength and bat speed to drive the ball into any gap. The four-time All-Star can play either outfield position and he owns a rocket of an arm. Stanton is hitting .246 with 16 home runs and 46 RBIs. He’s recorded a home run in back-to-back games.

Second baseman DJ LeMahieu knows how to make consistent contact and has good awareness of the strike zone. LeMahieu displays a good combination of speed and athleticism on the diamond. The three-time All-Star is hitting .260 with six home runs with 29 RBIs. In his last contest, he was 2-for-5 with two singles. 

Why you should back the Astros

Left fielder Yordan Alvarez is off to a hot start for the Astros. Alvarez has fantastic hitting ability for both power and average. The 24-year-old is a reliable run producer and can draw his fair share of walks. Alvarez is 12th in the majors in batting average (.317), tied for second in home runs (22), and fifth in RBIs (55).

Third baseman Alex Bregman has outstanding hands with superb bat speed. Bregman can spray the ball all across the diamond and get on base consistently. The two-time All-Star also is a reliable defender in the corner with quick instincts. He has logged nine home runs with 35 RBIs. He’s currently on a seven-game hitting streak.
