The MLB trade deadline has a new date in 2020, temporarily moved to August 31. Blockbuster trades used to happen every July, but it’s unclear if any major deal will go down this season. There are logistical nightmares, especially when it comes to travel and testing. The idea of a game-changing swap, however, leads us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What impact trade would make sense for the Yankees?
Earlier this summer, Joel Sherman speculated that the Cleveland Indians would use the trade deadline to shed payroll. He listed Francisco Lindor and Mike Clevinger as potential candidates to change teams, and both should interest the Yankees. The Colorado Rockies could also follow suit, and we know the Bombers love Nolan Arenado. Who would you like to see the Yankees try to nab before the August deadline? 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 (July 17th) for your post to be considered.
