Last week we started FanPost Fridays in an effort to better recognize the Pinstripe Alley community and put more of a spotlight on the readers and commenters. The first weekly prompt was about the Yankees’ best-case scenario in 2017, and we got some great submissions. All of the entries seemed well-thought-out, so thanks to everyone who took the time to put something together.
Here is this week’s prompt:
What MLB rule change would you like to see the most and why?
Just like last week, there is no one right answer. Feel free to interpret the question as you like. You could focus on changing an already existing rule, getting rid of a rule entirely, or even implementing a new rule that you think should exist. Think the NL should adopt the DH role? Hate five-hour rain delays and think there could be a better solution for bad weather? Back up your opinion and try to sway us in your favor.
As usual, check out our tips for writing a good fanpost. Remember that we’re looking for at least 250 words, and if you can’t reach that then you may not have fleshed out your idea completely. You may have a hundred rules that you’d like to see changed or added, but try to focus in on just one.
How will we select which fanposts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips linked above, 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.
Make sure you head over to the FanPost section of the website to submit your answers before Friday (January 27th).
