Why you should back the Mets

Right-hander Max Scherzer is on the hill for the Mets, and he can be completely overpowering by dominating opposing batters. The eight-time All-Star has the stuff to pile up strikeouts, and Scherzer has racked up at least nine strikeouts in three of his last four starts. The 37-year-old owns a blazing fastball and complements that with a nasty cutter and changeup.

Shortstop Francisco Lindor is a smooth, athletic switch-hitter who has displayed the ability to spray the ball to all parts of the field. The four-time All-Star flashes his defensive instincts with quick reads and difficult throws. Lindor is batting .250 with 16 home runs while being tied for seventh in the league in RBI (66). 

Why you should back the Yankees

Center fielder Aaron Judge is having a sensational campaign with light-tower power. Judge owns the strength and plate discipline to consistently produce extra-base hits as the four-time All-Star can hit for average with outstanding run-producing abilities. Judge is first in the majors in home runs (38), second in RBI (82), and third in OPS (1.035). Over his past five games, he's belted five home runs along with 12 RBI.

Third baseman DJ LeMahieu is a patient hitter who is able to consistently make contact. LeMahieu can play all over the infield and has three Gold Glove trophies on his mantle. The three-time All-Star is currently hitting .278 with nine homers and 38 runs driven in. On July 23, he went 2-for-5 with two singles and one run scored.
