Welcome to trade deadline month! This week, our coverage will focus on what teams could make good trade partners with the Yankees. It’s pretty obvious where they need some additional help, and rumors have circulated connecting the Bombers to various starting pitchers. Who might they try to package in a trade though? That question brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What player should the Yankees trade while they still have value?
The Yankees have turned to the minor leagues for help time and time again this season thanks to all the injuries. Many of those players shined during their short stints in the majors, but the 25-man roster doesn’t have room for everyone. There are a lot of players, particularly in Triple-A, who have played well but don’t appear to have a future in pinstripes. Who do you think the Bombers should try to move before they lose their trade value? This doesn’t necessarily have to be a prospect, and players on the IL are fair game. 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 (July 5th) for your post to be considered.
