If you’ve been living under a rock over the past week, I have good news: the Yankees signed Gerrit Cole. They really opened up the wallets for this one, agreeing to a nine-year, $324 million deal. It has been a long time since they nabbed the top free agent on the market, which brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
Who has been the best ever free agent signing for the Yankees?
Since Cole has yet to make his Yankees debut, I don’t think he counts for the purposes of this exercise. Stick to players who have completed their contracts. You could focus on one hitter and one pitcher, or just the best free agent the Bombers ever signed. Head over to the FanPost section and 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 (December 20) for your post to be considered.
