Last week I asked Pinstripe Alley readers what changes they would make to the MLB season and postseason. One Yankees fan suggested sprinkling Saturday doubleheaders into the schedule. Another submission focused on what an expansion to 32 teams might look like, while someone else suggested additional off days to keep the players rested. It’s never too late to share your ideas with us. All of the submissions can be found here.
Here is this week’s prompt:
Create the best Yankees lineup
This one is pretty straightforward. You will have to make a decision on who should be the starting second and third basemen, though. Feel free to make multiple lineups if you want to make different ones based on whether the pitcher is right-handed or left-handed, or for any other reason. It’s also possible that the Opening Day lineup will be different than the everyday lineup, if the Yankees were to send Gleyber Torres to the minors to manipulate his service time, then call him up a few weeks down the line. Head over to the FanPost section and create your version of the best lineup. We’ll feature one of the submissions on the front page on Friday.
How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, 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 (March 9th) for your post to be considered.
