Last week I asked Pinstripe Alley readers what they thought the biggest mistake of the 2017 season was. I wasn’t quite sure how I would even answer the question, but we received a lot of interesting submissions. One reader said it was not placing a waiver claim on Justin Verlander in August, a move that could have prevented him from ending up with the Astros. Another reader thought the biggest mistake was not giving Miguel Andujar more time at the big league level. The rest of the submissions can all be found here.
Here’s this week’s prompt:
What should the Yankees do to improve the team now that they’re out of the running to sign Shohei Ohtani?
It has been a busy weekend of news. The Yankees finally decided on a manager, and Shohei Ohtani started letting teams know if they would be invited to give him an in-person presentation. Unfortunately, the Yankees were not invited. There go the plans of adding him to the rotation and using him as the team’s DH. What moves do you think the Yankees should make to improve the team now? Let us know which free agents you think they should target, and what trades you’d like to see Brian Cashman put together.
How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.
Submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (December 8th) for your post to be considered.
