In case you missed it, the big news over the weekend is that the Mets acquired Robinson Cano, Edwin Diaz, and $20 million in exchange for Jay Bruce, Anthony Swarzak, and a few prospects. Earlier in the week, we heard that the Yankees had discussed the idea of swapping Jacoby Ellsbury for Cano, but nothing came of that. Blockbuster trades like this don’t pop up very often, however, the idea leads us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What blockbuster trade would make sense for the Yankees?
Pinstripe Alley readers seem to be divided into two camps: the side that wants the Bombers to trade Giancarlo Stanton, and the side that doesn’t. I think we’ve reached the point where all or most of us would like to see Jacoby Ellsbury on another roster, too. Alternatively, you might prefer to see the Yankees be like the Mets in this scenario, and trade for a great player like Cano. Try to stay rooted in reality—the Angels aren’t going to trade Mike Trout for Sonny Gray, for example—but otherwise have fun with this one. Head over to the FanPost section and share your answer with us. 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 (December 7th) for your post to be considered.
