Center Field: Yoenis Cespedes vs Lorenzo Cain
Terrific matchup here. Maybe the best.
Both of them are perennial All-Stars and probably the two biggest bats in their respective lineups. We all know about Cespedes and the impact he’s made to the Mets lineup since coming here, adding lots of power to go along with a dash of speed.
Cain has also been big offensively over the last couple seasons, especially in the playoffs. Cain may not have the power like Cespedes, but he is one of the faster players in the game and his speed is a game changer as he showed in Game 6 ALCS when he scored the winning run from first to send KC to the Fall Classic.
Cespedes may be the better five-tool player, but the fact that Cain has been more consistent in October mixed in with the concern about Cespedes’s shoulder injury, makes this a more fair sided matchup.
