You be the GM: What should the Yankees do in the offseason?

The Yankees have been eliminated from the postseason after losing to the Red Sox in the American League Division Series.

The Yankees finished the regular season 100-62 -- third-best in baseball behind Boston and the Houston Astros -- and made the playoffs for the second consecutive year, but could not improve upon their run last year, when they came within one game of reaching the World Series. 

If you were given the reins of the Yankees, what moves would you make this offseason? Share your thoughts on what direction the team should go below.

We are no longer accepting submissions.

Please get a top number one picher (ace) at any cost.

Sherly Antony , New York

I think it is time for Gardner to go.

If the Mets would do it, I would trade Sanchez, Frazier, and Severino for deGrom.

At the end of the day, if I could get two solid starters and Daniel Murphy I would be happy.

Jay Miller, Pasadena, CA

They need starting pitchers
