Just because there isn't black and white empirical evidence, doesn't mean that the Yankees defense won't allow quite a few more hits than the Dodgers' defense did. They're terrible. Pretty damn close to the worst defensive player at every single infield position. Take the fact that he's going from the best hitters park in the majors to Yankee Stadium, and that also has an effect. He has also spent over a third of the past 3 seasons on the DL, so I hardly consider him a safer bet than RJ.
If you want a headache, go with Brown. If you want a guy who when at the top of his game was one of the best of all time, go with RJ.
