Third Base: Bryant vs. Turner
Here is another close statical matchup. There is no doubting Justin Turner came alive after leaving the New York Mets. This is the first year that Turner played a full season in his eight-year career. And, his numbers are respectable. For the season he hit .275/.339/.493, with 27 home runs, 90 runs batted in, and 79 runs scored. Every team in the league would take those stats. And, his defense has been great as well.
But, then you have Kris Bryant. A viable MVP candidate. Not only did he hit 39 home runs but he led the National League with 121 runs scored. While he can commit errors, his defense at third saved an average of 12 runs (19 for Turner).
The wild card with this is Bryant plays all over the field. If he is in the outfield, Maddon can place Baez at third. Turner is limited to third base.
Advantage: Cubs (but it is close)
