The season is officially underway, and the Yankees wrapped up their first series yesterday. Things didn’t go as planned, however, between the rain delay, defensive miscues, and eventual series loss. That leads us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt.
If you’re new here, we provide a weekly prompt with the idea of sparking discussion in the FanPost section. It’s an opportunity to shine the spotlight on Pinstripe Alley readers, and provides Yankees fans with the chance to turn their comments or thoughts into a full story. If you don’t want to answer the prompt, but do want to write something else up, that’s okay too! We love hearing from you all, and that is a good way to catch our attention if you’re interested in writing for the site.
Here is this week’s prompt:
What is the one thing that the Yankees need to prove in the early goings?
The first few weeks can set the tone for the entire season, and there are still a lot of question marks surrounding this team. It remains to be seen if the backend of the rotation can adequately fill in during Luis Severino and CC Sabathia’s absences. Everyone is collectively holding their breath to see if Gary Sanchez will bounce back, the infield has looked shaky defensively, and the team’s issues with runners in scoring position have resurfaced. What do you think is the one thing the Yankees need to prove early on? Your answer could focus on one specific player, or a certain area of the team. Head over to the FanPost section and share your answer with us. 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 (April 5th) for your post to be considered.
