Last week I asked PSA readers to submit their favorite Derek Jeter memories in honor of Jeter Week. One reader recounted the time that he traveled by bus to Yankee Stadium hoping to witness Jeter’s 3,000th hit, only to find the game rained out. Another reader fondly remembered the home run that earned Jeter the moniker of “Mr. November.” All of the Jeter submissions can be found here.
Here is this week’s prompt:
Build the greatest Yankees lineup in franchise history
This one doesn’t require much of an explanation. Go back in time and build the best lineup in franchise history. That’s right, anyone who has ever played for the Yankees is fair game. Make sure to explain why you want each player in your lineup. There are probably going to be some tough decisions, so feel free to provide us with a list of runners-up for every position. If you’re feeling ambitious, you could go a step further and build the best team in Yankees history. That might be a prompt for another time, though.
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.
Be sure to head over to the FanPost section of the site to submit your answers before Friday (May 19th).
