At long last, the Yankees finally got to the bottom of the Aaron Judge injury last week. It turns out, the outfielder suffered a right rib fracture on a diving play in September. The new plan is for Judge to rest for two weeks, then they’ll reassess and determine if he needs surgery. It’s unlikely that he will be ready by Opening Day, which leads us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What is the best way for the Yankees to replace Aaron Judge in the lineup?
Judge typically bats second in the lineup. Who do you think should fill that role while he is injured? Should they shuffle around the whole lineup for better optimization? Head over to the FanPost section and share your answer. 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 (March 13) for your post to be considered.
