MLB: New York Yankees-Workouts Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

On Saturday, the Yankees will play their first spring training game. As it so happens, their first opponent will be none other than the Red Sox. Even after four months, I’m still salty over the Bombers’ early exit from the ALDS. A lot of things went wrong during that series, including bad starting pitching, questionable managerial decisions, and the lineup’s sudden inability to hit. However, it’s a new year and the Yankees will have the chance to flip the script on Boston. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

Have the Yankees done enough to take the AL East back from the Red Sox?

The Yankees have been very active over the offseason, even if they haven’t signed any of the top free agents left on the board. They traded for James Paxton, and brought back CC Sabathia and J.A. Happ. The bullpen gained Adam Ottavino and Zack Britton. Troy Tulowitzki and DJ LeMahieu joined the infield, and Brett Gardner returned to the outfield. The Yankees also traded away the dead weight that was Sonny Gray. The team appears to be set for the season...but are they now better than the Red Sox? Are you expecting the two to go head-to-head all season, or could the Yankees dominate like Boston did last year? 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 22nd) for your post to be considered.
