MLB: Game One-New York Mets at New York Yankees Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Heading into yesterday’s doubleheader, the Yankees found themselves in a protracted, dizzying tailspin. The disorienting kind, where down is up, up is down, and no matter how far you fall, you never seem to reach the ground. And while signs of life have appeared in recent games—three-straight wins against the Mets—a losing streak that long leaves a hangover. That brings us to this week’s FanPost prompt:

What do the Yankees need to do to get back on track?

How can the team bounce back in the division? Perhaps it’s bringing in someone in from outside the organization, ahead of the MLB Trade Deadline. Or maybe it’s calling up a top prospect like Clarke Schmidt or Deivi Garcia. Aaron Boone could also get creative with the lineup, moving players up or down depending on the quality of their at-bats. Head over to the FanPost section and tell us what you would do. 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 (September 4th) for your post to be considered.
