The weeks following a postseason elimination rank among the most chaotic of the year. As we look back at the Yankees’ 2020 campaign, running a full post-mortem, rumors and whispers of the offseason ahead begin to spill out, leaving fans reaching for their heating pads given how much back-and-forth neck cranking they have to do. The Yankees face an uncertain winter, though, so it makes sense to try to find some guide posts. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What is the key for the Yankees in the 2020 offseason?
It seems like the Yankees’ offseason will revolve around DJ LeMahieu; the infielder represents the major domino this winter, and his decision will shape the construction of the rest of the roster. Some, however, might consider the starting rotation, stretched as thin as possible, the focal point. Would that involve bringing back Masahiro Tanaka or James Paxton? Then, of course, there are trade talks: Francisco Lindor’s name will gravitate towards the Yankees, but there have also been rumblings of shipping out core players like Luke Voit or Gio Urshela. Head on over to the FanPost section and let us know what you think. We’ll pin the best answer to 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 (October 23rd) for your post to be considered.
