We’ve reached the point in the season where time seems to have slowed to a snail’s pace. There are somehow still five weeks left in the regular season and it’s just not reasonable to look ahead to the postseason yet. All we can really say is that the Yankees will almost certainly play baseball in October, though they haven’t officially punched their ticket yet. With that in mind, they have an opportunity to spend the next few weeks preparing. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

What three things do the Yankees need to figure out in September?

Questions abound as we approach roster expansion on September 1st. For one thing, will any prospects impress and might they have an impact come October? The Yankees will need to think through what to do with some of their veteran players who haven’t performed well in 2019 (J.A. Happ, CC Sabathia, etc.). September might be a good time to move them to different roles, or play around with pairing them with openers. There are also all of the players on the injured list to consider, and what to do with them when they return. 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 (August 30th) for your post to be considered.
