It’s Underdog Week at SB Nation! Team sites will explore the best underdog stories in their team’s history. Considering the Yankees are the winningest franchise in American sports, that means they aren’t typically considered underdogs. We’ll have to get creative instead. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
Who is the biggest underdog in Yankees history?
You can go a few different ways here. Perhaps you’re thinking of an unlikely player, be it Ronald Torreyes or Shelley Duncan or even Bucky Dent. Or maybe you have a team in mind—more difficult, but doable. The 2017 squad definitely had underdog vibes, as did the 1996 team. 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 22) for your post to be considered.
