It’s time for another FanPost Friday prompt. Last week I asked PSA readers to make predictions about the final AL East standings. One reader expected it to be a close race between the Yankees and Red Sox, but ultimately decided that the Yankees would win the division by a game or so. Now that the trade deadline is over, all we can do is really sit back and see what happens.
Here is this week’s prompt:
Rate the Yankees’ trade deadline moves
The trade deadline has (almost) passed and it certainly has been a different experience than last year’s. Very much still in the race, the Yankees made moves to improve the team now with the hopes of making it into the postseason. Did they do enough? Alternatively, did they give up too many prospects? Play shoulda, coulda, woulda and tell us what you would have done if you were in charge. Hate one trade but love another? Tell us why.

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. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.
Make sure you submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (August 4th) for your post to be considered.
