The Yankees’ 72nd annual Old-Timers’ Day will take place Sunday, June 17th before their game with the Rays. Several fan favorites will attend, including Andy Pettitte, David Cone, and Nick Swisher. The full list can be found here. In honor of the reunion, let’s talk about some of the overrated players in Yankees history.
Here is this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
Who is the most overrated player in Yankees history?
This one is pretty straight forward. The player you select might be on the team currently, a former Yankee who found a new home, or could be retired altogether. Maybe you consider them overrated because everyone thought they were incredible, but the stats don’t back that up. Perhaps they were given a massive contract and never lived up to it. Alternatively, they might have stolen the spotlight from another player who you think didn’t get the recognition they deserved. Head over to the FanPost section and tell us who you think the most overrated Yankee is, and be sure to explain why. 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 (June 15th) for your post to be considered.
