Last week I asked Pinstripe Alley readers to share their favorite September moments with us. One Yankees fan fondly recalled attending Joe DiMaggio day back in 1998. Another reader was at the game on September 2, 1979 when Oscar Gamble hit a walk-off home run in the 10th inning. As always, thanks for sharing with us. It’s never too late to answer a previous FanPost prompt if you feel so inspired.
Here is this week’s prompt:
What is the best reason for Yankees fans to dislike the Red Sox?
It seems like a good time to ask this question, considering that the Yankees continue to trail the Red Sox in the division, and in light of the Apple Watch news that broke last week. If you’re a Yankees fan, you presumably can’t stand the Red Sox. Now is your chance to share all the things that make you loathe the team. Does it have to do with certain players or certain events that have happened during games and/or series? Does their stadium drive you crazy? If you are a Yankees fan and you somehow don’t dislike the Red Sox, feel free to tell us why that’s the case and why you dislike another team more.
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.
Submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (September 15th) for your post to be considered.
