MLB: New York Yankees at Arizona Diamondbacks Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

If the postseason started today, the Yankees, Twins, and Astros would be the respective AL division champions. The Indians, Athletics, and Rays remain neck and neck for the two Wild Card spots. The division winner with the best record gets to play the winner of the Wild Card Game, but there isn’t much separation between New York and Houston at the moment. In other words, it’s too early to know who the Yankees would play in the first round. It’s not too early to speculate, though. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

Which teams are the Yankees’ ideal playoff opponents?

I think we can probably all agree that the Astros aren’t the right answer here. Given the choice, which teams would you prefer to see play the Yankees in the postseason? Who would be the ideal ALDS and ALCS opponents? If they were to make it all the way to the World Series, which NL team would you like to see them match up with? 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 (September 6) for your post to be considered.
