MLB: ALCS-New York Yankees at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

For the fourth consecutive season, the Yankees will play postseason baseball. The Bombers begin a best two out of three series against the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night, a rematch of the 2017 ALDS. The Yanks have come close in recent years, but they’ve yet to go all the way in their quest for world championship number 28. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

What lessons can the Yankees learn from recent postseasons?

In 2018, Aaron Boone left his starters out to dry, as CC Sabathia and Luis Severino both got knocked around, ultimately leading to the team’s early exit. Last season, Boone got more aggressive, but the regular deployment of relief arms like Chad Green and Adam Ottavino left the bullpen staff gassed. Those areas obviously represent spots on which to improve. You might also think of lineup management, or style of play. Let us know what you think in the FanPost section, and we’ll pick one to pin to 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 (October 2nd) for your post to be considered.
