August has been an interesting month for the Yankees, and we’re not even halfway through it. We’ve seen some shakeups in the rotation (Lance Lynn in, Sonny Gray out), Chance Adams’ MLB debut, and rocky outings by key members of the bullpen. After a nasty four-game sweep at the hands of the Red Sox, the Yankees won six of their last seven games. Fingers crossed that they’ll take six of seven this week, too.
That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What are your predictions for the rest of the Yankees’ season?
We’re just seven weeks away from the postseason, believe it or not. Let’s make some predictions! You can focus on the regular season, the postseason, or both. What will the Yankees’ record be? Do you think there is any hope that they will gain ground in the standings and fight it out with the Red Sox for the division title? Will Aaron Judge return? These are just a few questions that you can consider, but feel free to go in a different direction entirely. You might even want to tackle which teams you see matching up in the Wild Card, ALDS, ALCS, and World Series.
Don’t forget to head over to the FanPost section and share your predictions. 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 (August 17th) for your post to be considered.
