Whats your favourite MLB baseball team, and why??Page 4 of 3    (1, 2, 3)

So, to make a long story short, it was in 1987 that the Sox won me over and I have been a dedicated fan ever since!!


That is such a sad story

I was at the seventh game it was awesome!

Growing up I was a Red Sox fan for a long time. It was the 80's and I didn't know any better, but they had some great players....Wade Boggs, Jim Rice, Roger Clemens, Ellis Burks. Once those guys started to get traded away or retired, I moved on to the Cardinals. We had moved to the St. Louis area so it just made sense. Plus, who didn't love Ozzie?

Chicago White Sox.

I grew on the South Side of Chicago and as a kid, I liked both teams. However, I have more special memories of old Comiskey Park. I got to take batting practice with a friend in grade school on the same field that "Shoeless" Joe Jackson, Babe Ruth, Luis Aparicio, Harold Baines and other legends played on. I remember how insane it was in 1983, even though I was only 7 at the time.

When I came back to the game in the early 2000's, the White Sox won me over. I like seeing this team being led by players who spent most of their careers here. When the Sox won it in 2005, you couldn't help but think of those who missed the chance to see it happen or those that have waited until they were in their 70's and 80's to finally see it happen. It was a thing of absolute beauty.

I am a diehard Toronto Blue Jays fan. I have been my whole life. Probably because I live in the same province and country where they play,and I live about three hours away.

There are two teams I love,

Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays....I know, it should be one or the other, but I have mix feelings for both of these teams.

Wiz, I am worried about you! Do we need to play 'Torn Between Two Lovers' or 'Mixed Emotions' for you??If The Hair of the Dog makes you happy when the Sox closer walks to the mound, you will know where your passions lie.

If you get the warm, fuzzies when you hear Dirty Water, or at very least Sweet Caroline, we will know where your passions lie. If we have to hand you a crying towel at the end of the game, I'll play Sad Eyes and give you a hug!! That is, if the Sox win!!

Angels. The stadium is a 15 minute drive and we've made the trades to take it all the way this year. Not to mention we're 30 over .500. Hello Fall Classic.

The St. Louis Cardinals.

Mostly it's a family tradition and my mom and dad were introduced because they were Cardinals fans. Then my earliest memories were of taking family car rides on summer evenings with the games on the AM radio. Then as I got older I recall hiding under the covers with my transistor radio after bed time when they played the West Coast teams.

And as was said... when they mention the truly greats of the game in history that includes maybe a half dozen names, when you watch the Cardinals you are seeing the once a generation player that will eventually join that short list that includes the likes of Babe Ruth and Ted Williams in Albert Pujols.

My favourite baseball team was the Expos (now the Nationals).

Other teams i always liked: The Mets, The Phillies, The Twins, Cubs (you gotta love them cubbies!) and the Red Sox.
Teams i loved to hate: the Yankees, the Jays, the Braves

I lost a lot of interest in baseball since the Expos moved, but i wasn't only an Expos fan. I was a real die hard baseball fan, following the games of other teams i liked to watch. I never missed a championship or world series. But since the Expos folded, i practically lost interest and the only year i actually watched baseball was when the Red Sox finally won after almost 100 years or something.

I guess, things i really like about a team is their running game and how they manufacture a run, instead of always relying on a home run. I like the creativity and the strategies of the game and i find it more exciting than a steroid monster hitting home runs. The Expos always played that way. That is the reason why they were so good most of the times, despite having the lowest roster salary in the majors. They never won a championship even if they came close many times. They had the second best records of the major in the 1990's, but they finished 1st only once: in 1994.

Go Tigers!

The Expos had some great drafts but they could not hold onto their players because they couldn't draw flies.
I doubt the Expos had the 2nd best record of the 90's.
Both the Yankees and the Braves won more games than Montreal.

Braves 925
Yankees 851
Expos 776

^^^^ Woo hoo Rays!!!


I also used to follow the Braves before there were teams in Florida as well as the Cubs since they were about the only games on TV when we got cable in the 80’s. The Braves aren't on TBS anymore, but at least WGN still has the Cubbies!

The Twins... because i'm a masochist...



(seriously, started watching when I was a really little girl when they were amazing, survived the drought years, the bitter sweet years, the world series years, the couldn't beat minor league team years, and now am in the "half our payroll is in three players and we have lost our pitching/defense edge now that Terry Ryan is gone years"...

but they still have heart, drive, chemistry and are an incredibly decent bunch of guys, a couple of them are beyond flat out amazing (Mauer and Morneau are truly gifted) and Gardenhire is one of the most underrated consistently good with nothing managers out there...

Even though I'm not a Twins fan, I'd have to agree with you here. I can't think of a classier manager in major league baseball....and year after year, he has his team in the pennant race. Minnesota struck gold twice in a row with Tom Kelly and Ron Gardenhire.
