During Friday night’s Yankees-Orioles game, Manny Machado took CC Sabathia deep twice. That gives Machado five career home runs off of CC. Since these two teams play so frequently, it makes sense that Machado has homered the most off of a Yankees pitcher. He also happens to be one of the best hitters in the league, but it’s still pesky to see him own the Yankees.
That brings us to this week’s prompt:
Who do you hate to see bat against the Yankees?
There have always been certain players who just have the Yankees’ number, but who is the one player that you really dread seeing in the batter’s box? Your answer doesn’t necessarily have to be an active player. Personally, I was happy to see Evan Longoria traded out of the AL East. Head over to the FanPost section and share your answer. We’ll feature one of the responses on the front page on Friday. Don’t forget to look at our guide to FanPosts if you aren’t sure how to get started.
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 (April 13th) for your post to be considered.
