It’s an understatement to say that this season isn’t going the way the Yankees hoped. Half of the roster is injured, and the team has dropped a considerable number of winnable games. Several of the healthy members of the team—both regulars and replacements—are off to dreadfully slow starts. That leads us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What player in the Yankees farm system do you think could help right now?
This team is playing so poorly that it’s not difficult to find players who might be replaced by someone better. In the bullpen, Chad Green, Jonathan Holder, and Tommy Kahnle have had multiple rocky outings. Greg Bird is slashing .171/.293/.257 and looks absolutely lost at the plate. Not to mention the fact that Tyler Wade, Mike Tauchman, and Kyle Higashioka have received far too much playing time out of necessity. Could the Yankees be improved by calling someone else up to replace even one of these guys? Several of the RailRiders have been raking, and the Bombers could try to catch lightning in a bottle.
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 (April 19th) for your post to be considered.
