It is time for the FanPost Friday prompt of the week. Last week I asked PSA readers to rank all 30 teams from favorite to least favorite. In a shocking turn of events, everyone ranked the Yankees first and the Red Sox last. You can check out all of the submissions here, including one with a haiku for (almost) every team.
Here is this week’s prompt:
Who is your favorite terrible Yankee?
That’s right, I don’t want to know who your all-time favorite Yankee is. We’ll save that for another week. This week I want you to pick your favorite player who was straight up awful during their time with the Yankees. This player will probably never be remembered as a Yankee legend, but they have a special place in your heart for whatever reason. Maybe they had a lovable way of losing their helmet every time they rounded the bases, like Eduardo Nunez. Pick a favorite terrible Yankee and explain your choice in the FanPost section.

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. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.
Make sure you head over to the FanPost section of the site to submit your answers before Friday (April 14th).
