Happy Draft week! Rounds one and two will take place tonight, three through ten on Tuesday, and 11-40 on Wednesday. As always, we’ll have live coverage of the Yankees’ selections, so be sure to check back for that. Before the action kicks off, let’s revisit some of the team’s previous picks.

Here is this week’s prompt:

Rank the best and worst draft picks in Yankees history

We all know that it is difficult to predict whether a prospect will ultimately make it to the majors, but the Yankees aren’t really known for making great draft selections. There have been a lot of first-round busts over the past ten years (2009-2012 especially). Of course, there have been a few incredible players sprinkled in there as well. So, who do you consider to be the best and worst draft picks in the team’s history? There are a ton of different ways to approach this. You could stick to first-round picks or surprise us with players from later rounds, go all the way back to 1965 or choose to focus on more recent selections. Head over to the FanPost section to submit your answer. 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 8th) for your post to be considered.
