New York Mets Vs. Yankees: Position By Position


The Yankees bench consists of Alex Rodriguez, newly acquired Garrett Jones, Chris Young and John Ryan Murphy. Rodriguez and Jones will serve as DHs and backups at first and third. Young is a good fourth outfielder and Murphy is a more than serviceable backup catcher. The Mets go into 2015 with John Mayberry Jr., Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Ruben Tejada and Antony Recker.

Edge: Yankees. I like the addition of power hitting left-hander Jones. If A-Rod can hit between .260-.270 the Yankees will be more than happy.
