Submit your answer in the FanPost section for the chance to see your story featured on the front page.

Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams

It’s “What If?” Week at SB Nation! Team sites will explore moments that could have changed the courses of franchises. There’s no shortage of “What if?” fodder for the Yankees. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

What’s the biggest “What if?” moment in Yankees history?

Yankees history has many offshoots that could lead to fascinating “What if?” discussions. You could go way back, and wonder about the proposed swap of Ted Williams for Joe DiMaggio, or what if Mickey Mantle didn’t hurt his knee in Game Two of the 1951 World Series. Or, you might wonder about more recent history, like what if the Cliff Lee trade went through in 2011? 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 (May 15) for your post to be considered.
