We’re a month into the season, and it has been an interesting one, to say the least. Half of the Yankees are on the injured list, and the everyday lineup could be mistaken for a spring training road lineup. And yet, the Yankees continue to win games. They’re fresh off a sweep of the Giants, and just took three out of four games in Anaheim. They really couldn’t be doing any better, and they’re getting a lot of help from guys who would otherwise be in the minor leagues. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
Which Yankee has had the most surprising start to the season?
There are a lot of players to choose from here, but which Yankee has surprised you the most? Whether you interpret this in a positive or negative way is entirely up to you. Maybe you can’t believe the hot start that Player X has gotten off to, but also can’t believe how awful Player Y has been. Feel free to write both perspectives. You might also choose to focus on a specific area of the team, like the rotation or bullpen. 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 (May 3rd) for your post to be considered.
