Why you should back the Mets
First baseman Pete Alonso is having a sensational season thus far. Alonso is one of the strongest players in the league and the baseball explodes off his bat.

On Saturday, he went 2-for-4 with two solo homers.
Center fielder Brandon Nimmo is a superb athlete with quality hitting skills. Nimmo has good power and covers the plate well. The 29-year-old has been a reliable defender and owns solid speed in the outfield. Nimmo's batting average is .275 along with four homers and 23 RBIs. On June 20, he was 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored.
Why you should back the Marlins
First baseman Garrett Cooper has displayed exceptional hitting ability for both power and average. Cooper's swing is direct and compact which allows him to drive the ball all across the field. The 31-year-old plays sound defense in the corner and provide his teammates with a nice throwing target (6'5, 235 pounds). He's currently first on the team in batting average (.311) and hits (70) with five home runs and 34 RBIs.
Right fielder Jorge Soler is a strong individual with the power to smack the ball out of the yard with ease. Soler runs well and owns a stout throwing arm from the outfield. The 30-year-old is second on the team in home runs (13) with 33 RBIs. He's driven in a run in three of his last four games. On June 22, he was 1-for-3 with a solo shot.
