Last week I asked Pinstripe Alley readers which pitcher in history they would have start a Wild Card Game for the Yankees. One fan shared that he would have Allie Reynolds start the game. Other Yankees fans chimed in offering up everyone from Whitey Ford to Andy Pettitte. Check out all of the submissions here.

Here’s this week’s prompt:

What was the most gut-wrenching loss in Yankees history?

The baseball season is long, and losses are part of the game. However, some losses are worse than others. What stands out to you as the worst Yankees loss ever? It could be a regular season game, but I’d imagine it’s more likely to be something that happened during the postseason. Obviously, the Yankees have lost plenty of postseason games, so why does this one in particular stand out among the others? Set the scene for us (who were they playing, what happened in the game, etc.) and explain why it feels like the worst loss ever to you. 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 (September 21st) for your post to be considered.
