The month of January was an eventful one for sorting out the future of the Yankees’ starting rotation. Masahiro Tanaka and J.A. Happ officially departed in free agency, and to fill their spots, GM Brian Cashman made moves to acquire Corey Kluber and Jameson Taillon. If everything shakes right, Kluber and Taillon could pair with ace Gerrit Cole and Jordan Montgomery to give the Yankees a strong front four in 2021 — and that’s without considering possible contributions from rookies like Deivi García and Clarke Schmidt.
There are risks abound though, so here’s the FanPost Friday prompt:
Is the Yankees’ starting rotation good enough to win the World Series in 2021?
Cole is as good an ace as one will find, so that’s an advantage already, but some fans might be worried about the Yankees’ World Series aspirations with the rest of this rotation. In a FanPost, explain why you believe that this rotation is capable of putting it all together in 2021, or why you have concerns and think Cashman should still be on the lookout for more starters. At this stage of the year, there are no wrong answers! Just make a good case.
Check out the FanPost section of Pinstripe Alley and let us know your thoughts. 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 February 5th for your post to be considered.
