Last week, the Yankees officially made the first of their offseason decisions. Although they declined Brett Gardner’s $12.5 million option, they brought him back on a one-year deal worth $7.5 million. They also acquired infielder Hanser Alberto from the Rangers. They’re supposedly out on Bryce Harper, and possibly not very interested in Manny Machado, but who knows if any of that is true. That leads us to this week’s prompt:
Plan out the Yankees’ 2018-2019 offseason
There are over four months to go until pitchers and catchers report to spring training. All of the top free agents are still on the board, and the Yankees have many, many roster spots to fill. Aside from three open spots in the rotation, there are several new holes in the bullpen, and the Bombers will need to replace Didi Gregorius for the first part of the season. There is also the fact that Brian Cashman has been vocal about wanting to trade Sonny Gray. What free agents do you think the Yankees will sign? How will they fill the open roster spots? What kind of deal do you see happening for Gray, and what other trades might be up Cashman’s sleeve? Head over to the FanPost section and walk us through every move you see the Yankees making over the next four months. We’ll feature one of the submissions on the front page on Friday.
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 (November 9th) for your post to be considered.
