Tough choice... but I like Presley. He's young and trying to prove himself on a team that's doing the same. I think Nunez is a good replacement, but I think he will cool off. Nunez does have the better lineup around him tho..
The thing that bothers me a bit about Nunez, even though he has a MUCH better line-up around him, is that he gets AB's far less than Presley does. That would be my deal-breaker. If you think you have enough guys that you don't need him to get daily or almost-daily AB's, then Nunez looks better. If you need daily/almost-daily AB's, then Presley looks better, even with Nunez coming in for Jeter in the past and possibly coming in for A-Rod. Unless you read somewhere that Nunez will start daily for A-Rod, I'd go Presley cause of the better AB's guarantee.
Per CBS: "Yankees 3B Eduardo Nunez got the start on Sunday against Tampa Bay and will continue to do so consistently going forward with Alex Rodriguez electing to undergo knee surgery. Nunez went 1 for 3 in the game and is batting .279 on the year."
