We’re a little over a week away from the trade deadline. The Orioles kicked everything off by sending Manny Machado to the Dodgers. Since then, the Padres have dealt Brad Hand to the Indians, and the Mets shipped Jeurys Familia to the Athletics. Although the Yankees have been connected to a lot of players, there haven’t been any serious rumors since Machado was still with Baltimore. Brian Cashman is bound to do something to improve the team, but for now we just have to wait and see what happens. In the meantime, let’s remember some of Cashman’s best and worst deals over the years.
Here is this week’s FanPost prompt:
Rank Brian Cashman’s best and worst Yankees trades
Cashman has made a ton of deals during his tenure as General Manager. The Yankees clearly think highly of him since he has held the position for so long, but not all of his moves have worked out. What do you consider to be Cashman’s best and worst trades? You could stick with one of each, or make a list including several hits and misses. Feel free to touch on deals that reportedly almost happened but fell through. Head over to the FanPost section and share your list. 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 (July 27th) for your post to be considered.
