Happy pitchers and catchers week! In just two days, they’ll all report to spring training. The team will start playing games in less than two weeks, and Opening Day is just six weeks away. Now is the time for reflecting on the offseason and starting to look ahead to the 2019 squad. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What are the Yankees’ biggest strengths and weaknesses heading into the season?
The Bombers did some serious work over the offseason, adding elite arms to the bullpen, signing a ton of infielders, and rounding out the rotation. For many years, the biggest strength has been the bullpen, while the biggest weakness has been the rotation. Is that still true? Maybe you see the infield defense as their biggest liability, or aren’t as keen on the bullpen as everyone else. 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 (February 15th) for your post to be considered.
