Last week, the Giants and Blue Jays worked out a deal to send Kevin Pillar to San Francisco. Trade season doesn’t usually begin in early April, but to heck with norms. There are plenty of teams who already need help, and the Yankees happen to be one of them. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What one trade could help the Yankees right now?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock since Opening Day, you’re well aware that the Bombers have been decimated by injuries early on. The injury bug has attacked every area of the team, from the rotation (Luis Severino, CC Sabathia) to the bullpen (Dellin Betances). The infield has been hit hard (Miguel Andujar, Troy Tulowitzki, Didi Gregorius), but the outfield hasn’t fared any better (Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Hicks, Jacoby Ellsbury). At this point, the list of players who aren’t injured might actually be shorter.
We’re only nine games into the season, and the Yankees have already been forced to turn to Clint Frazier, Mike Tauchman, Tyler Wade, Thairo Estrada, and Gio Urshela for help. Roster depth is not a strength at the moment, and there’s no telling whether Andujar will return this year. So, what is one trade you think the Yankees should make right now? Try to keep your trade proposals realistic. In other words, Mike Trout is off the table. 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 12th) for your post to be considered.
