LAD Joc Pederson– .217/.355/.433, 25 HR, 121 wRC+, 2.9 WAR
NYM Yoenis Cespedes– .294/.330/.555, 35 HR, 139 wRC+, 6.8 WAR
As much as I love Joc this one is no contest. Cespedes is in the MVP discussion(which I think is ridiculous, but he’ll probably get some votes). Cespy has been very good all season but has taken it to another level as a Met. He’s still not even close to Bryce Harper so don’t even try to argue that he’s the MVP, but he’s definitely the most dangerous player on the Mets roster.
Like I said in the previous slide, if Cespy moves to left he gives the Mets the advantage there, but it gives the Dodgers the advantage in center with Joc over Lagares. Yoenis will probably have the advantage no matter where he plays, so this one is pretty easy.
Advantage: Mets (3-1-3)
