Just five weeks remain in the regular season, and the Yankees might make the division race interesting down the stretch. If you haven’t been paying attention, the Red Sox were just swept by the Rays, and they’ve been scuffling a bit lately. Meanwhile, the Yankees have finally played well against the Orioles and have gained some ground in the standings. The Bombers coming back to win the division would undoubtedly be the biggest surprise of the season. That got me to thinking about specific players, though, and that leads us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
Which Yankees have surprised and disappointed the most this season?
There is a lot to choose from here. The Yankees have been decimated by injuries all season, and a lot of players stepped up in a big way. However, there are also quite a few players who have been plain bad. Which player exceeded your expectations, and who has been the biggest disappointment? Head over to the FanPost section and share 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 (August 31st) for your post to be considered.
