It’s time for another FanPost Friday prompt. We got a lot of great responses to last week’s prompt asking what moment in franchise history people would change. Several people had World Series games on the brain, particularly games from 2001 and 2003. Another person took issue with numerous front office decisions, including the time that the Yankees let Robinson Cano walk away. You can check out all of the submissions here.
Moving on, here’s the prompt for this week:
What one move would you make to improve the 2017 Yankees?
The main catch here is that your answer must be realistic. Everyone would like to see the Yankees trade Rob Refsnyder to the Angels for Mike Trout, but that would never happen in real life (Cashman would obviously reject that trade because he knows Ref’s true value). Maybe you would put together a huge package of prospects to bring back Cano. Or you might focus on improving the rotation. Maybe there is a free agent left that you would scoop up, or you might even making a coaching or front office change. The question is open-ended, so you can take it in any direction you like but try to focus on just one thing.
As usual, check out our tips for writing a good FanPost. Remember that we’re looking for at least 250 words, and if you can’t reach that then you may not have fleshed out your idea completely. Make sure that you explain why you would make this one move and how you think it would improve the team.
How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips linked above, 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.
Make sure you head over to the FanPost section of the website to submit your answers before Friday (February 17th).
