The fate of the 2020 Major League Baseball season now hangs in the balance. Think that’s dramatic? Consider this: several owners have reportedly said they would prefer a canceled season because it presents an avenue to save money. Their standoff with the MLBPA will reach an inflection point soon, with the goal of Opening Day in early July slipping away by the day. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
How would you get the Yankees on the field in 2020?
Congratulations, you’ve been tasked with getting the season off the ground! Good luck, because it’s on you to get us the chance to watch Gerrit Cole pitch and Giancarlo Stanton bash dingers. You have to be realistic though, meaning you can’t unilaterally decide players have to take a pay cut, or owners have to surrender fully. Give us your best plan, what business people like to call a win-win. Head over to the FanPost section and submit 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 (June 5) for your post to be considered.
