MLB: ALCS-Houston Astros at New York Yankees Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The World Series starts tomorrow tonight and Yankees fans will have the extreme displeasure of watching a contest between the Astros and Nationals. It’s a shame that the season ended this way for the Bombers, after such a grueling year where they overcame injury after injury. We knew it wouldn’t be easy to beat Houston, but there sure were a lot of things that went wrong for the Yankees on their way to a Game Six exit. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

What was the biggest mistake the Yankees made in the postseason?

There is plenty to choose from here. A strong argument could be made for replacing Giancarlo Stanton on the roster rather than allowing him to ride the bench for the rest of the series and become dead weight. Not bringing a struggling Adam Ottavino into that spot during Game Two might have changed the outcome of the entire series. What stands out as the biggest postseason mistake to you? 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 (October 25) for your post to be considered.
