Why you should back the Yankees

Right fielder Aaron Judge is a tall, athletic player on the diamond who moves well for his size with outstanding power. The three-time All-Star has a cannon for an arm and finished fourth among AL right fielders in assists last year. This season, he is first in the MLB in home runs (27), fifth in RBI (53), third in OPS (1.037) and is hitting .304. On June 22, he went 2-for-5 with two solo homers.

First baseman Anthony Rizzo is another quality bat in the lineup who generates plenty of power in his swing and can consistently produce runs. The three-time All-Star is tied for sixth in the majors in homers (19) and ninth in RBI (49). Rizzo has an OPS of 1.179 over the last seven days and has reached base safely 13 times over that span.

Why you should back the Astros

Left fielder Yordan Alvarez has tremendous hitting ability for both power and average who is also a constant-run producer with an effortless swing. The 2021 ALCS MVP can be patient at the plate and has solid pitch recognition. Alvarez is second in the MLB in home runs (22), fourth in RBI (54), and first in OPS (1.071) while batting .317.

Designated hitter Michael Brantley has patience, solid bat control, and a good batter’s eye. Brantley is an athletic presence with the ability to continuously drive in runs. The five-time All-Star is hitting .296 along with five dingers and 26 runs driven in. He’s tallied a hit in 16 of his last 17 games and is hitting .368 in the month of June.
