Position by Position Comparison: New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays


Most of the big named free agents are still on the board so I wanted to take this opportunity to take a before and after look, position by position, at the New York Yankees and how they stack up against the rest of the American League East Division. This is obviously subject to change, and will change, so keep in mind that this is the "before" and not a look into the 2017 season just yet. With that said let's look at how the Tampa Bay Rays stack up with the Bronx Bombers.


First Base: 

Greg Bird vs. Brad Miller


Second Base:

Starlin Castro vs. Logan Forsythe (could have been a push but the tie goes to the Yankee)


Shortstop:

Didi Gregorius vs. Matt Duffy


Third Base:

Chase Headley vs. Evan Longoria


Catcher:

Gary Sanchez vs. Luke Maile


DH:

Matt Holliday vs. Nick Franklin


Left Field:

Brett Gardner vs. Corey Dickerson


Center Field: 

Jacoby Ellsbury vs. Kevin Kiermaier


Right Field: 

Aaron Judge (sample size ladies and gents) vs. Mikie Mahtook




"Winner" in my opinion is bolded.
