The offseason is officially underway, and the Yankees have already made some moves for the 2020 season. First, they decided to part ways with longtime pitching coach Larry Rothschild. They also reached a deal with Aroldis Chapman to prevent him from opting out of his contract. Of course, they’ve yet to do anything major. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What should be the Yankees’ number one offseason priority?
Should they go all-in for an elite starting pitcher? Maybe you see them targeting one of the free agents, like Gerrit Cole, but they could pursue a trade like they did last year to acquire James Paxton. Hitting failed them during the ALCS, so maybe you see them going after a power bat instead, or maybe they can find another DJ LeMahieu-type somewhere. They could always quadruple down on relief pitching and add another closer. 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 (November 8) for your post to be considered.
