Why you should back the Yankees

Outfielder Aaron Judge is having a sensational season. Judge has continued to hit home runs all season long with his effortless swing. Despite being 6'7, the four-time All-Star doesn't have any holes in his swing. Judge has great plate coverage and bat speed. He's first in the league in home runs (46), RBI (100), and OPS (1.086). 

Third baseman Josh Donaldson has impacted the game both offensively and defensively. Donaldson brings power and run-producing abilities to the table for New York. He's patient at the dish with superb instincts. Donaldson has belted 11 home runs and 43 RBI. The three-time All-Star is also solid in the corner with a rocket of an arm.

Why you should back the Red Sox

Third baseman Rafael Devers is an impactful player with superb instincts. Devers owns a smooth glove and solid throwing arm from the corner. The two-time All-Star has the pitch recognition skills needed to thrive. Devers is 12th in the majors in batting average (.303), sixth in OPS (.930), and tied for eighth in doubles (31). 

Left fielder Alex Verdugo has been an athletic playmaker for Boston. Verdugo has the speed to cover plenty of ground in the outfield. The 26-year-old is patient at the dish and will draw his fair share of walks. Verdugo's bat speed is above-average, allowing him to quickly turn on any pitch. He's batting .277 with seven home runs and 54 RBI. On Aug. 13, he went 2-for-2 with a double.
