2018 Major League Baseball Draft

The MLB Draft takes place this week, with five rounds of selections spanning Wednesday and Thursday. While originally scheduled to take place in Omaha, to coincide with the College World Series, the league will now hold the event virtually. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

How should the Yankees approach the 2020 MLB Draft?

The Yankees have only three selections in the five-round draft because they signed Gerrit Cole back in December. They can’t bank on depth this year, so they have essentially two strategies. On the one hand, they can go for the best available players, draft the highest upside, and see if they can walk out with quality over quantity. Conversely, they could prioritize the 2020 season, assuming there is one, and draft a player they can fast-track to the majors. 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 12) for your post to be considered.
