Sometimes teams have to give up good prospects to acquire players who will help them win now. It is notoriously difficult to predict whether a prospect will succeed at the MLB level, so these types of trades are usually worth it. The Yankees’ farm isn’t quite as good as it was a few years ago, but that is because many of their prospects have graduated to the big leagues, or they have traded them away. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

What prospect do you think the Yankees regret trading?

This doesn’t have to be a player that was traded in the past few years. Maybe the trade you’re thinking of happened 15 years ago. Head over to the FanPost section and tell us what trade you would undo and why. 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 (June 28th) for your post to be considered.
