Why you should back the Yankees

First baseman Anthony Rizzo is a slugger for the Yankees who owns outstanding home-run power and run-producing abilities. Rizzo creates great power due to his big swing and frame. The three-time All-Star knows when to get aggressive at the plate and drive the ball to all parts of the field. Rizzo is tied for ninth in the majors in home runs (22) and tied for 15th in RBIs (57).

Catcher Jose Trevino plays magnificent defense behind the plate with his superb instincts and quickness. Trevino knows how to call a great game to give his pitchers the upper hand. The 29-year-old can also hit for average and make constant contact. He has a batting average of .253 with seven homers and 27 RBIs. 

Why you should back the Red Sox

Shortstop Xander Bogaerts is a gifted hitter who has an effortless swing. Bogaerts has a great arm and throws the ball with accuracy. The four-time All-Star can hit for a high average and regularly get on base. Bogaerts ranks sixth in the MLB in batting average (.318) along with seven homers and 37 RBIs.
