IMO, the young team is better defensively and has a clear advantage in the bullpen. Hitting might have a slight advantage to the older guys.. actually, they probably clearly win that. Pitching is a toss-up. Kershaw is arguably the best pitcher in baseball, although I'd take King Felix and Darvish over him, personally... but most wouldn't.
Another thing to take into account... this is pure skill. Not just performance this year. Assume every player is at their very best, for the age they're at.

It's not really a "in the prime of their careers" thing. I'm saying how good they are now.. But I was trying to shy people away from saying the older team because they've "been there, done that."
But the closer you listed, although great, is literally on his last leg.
I'll still take the old guys.
