Whether the team has ripped your heart out and danced all over it, or whether the fanbase is flat out embarassing, here's a list of the ten worst MLB teams to be a fan of:
10. Los Angeles Dodgers
9. New York Mets
8. Cleveland Indians
When the Indians were playing well, and sat comfortably atop the division they still couldn’t fill the seats in the stadium. Here’s the pathetic part, they consider themselves a basketball town. That’s the argument that is given when Cleveland fans are criticized for their attendance at Indians games. Basketball town? Lebron didn’t even wanna stay in Cleveland and he’s from there. Give Asdrubal Cabrera some attention before he announces his decision to leave the city in a one hour special. Then you’ll all be complaining and burning his jersey in the streets acting like it’s his fault.
7. Florida Marlins
A Marlins fan at a game tweeted a picture saying they hand counted 347 fans at the game. 347. Listen up Marlins fan(s), the chuckle you get from someone when you say you’re a Marlins fan isn’t as much over you rooting for the Marlins as it is the irony of that person meeting someone that actually roots for the Marlins.
6. Chicago Cubs
On Friday night, they lost a game in the 12 inning on a blown call. Nobody noticed, or cared.
5. Seattle Mariners
One of the few positives of the season was trading for Brandon League.
4. San Diego Padres
So far in September, the only games the Padres have won this month were to avoid sweeps. Adrian Gonzalez and Boston are for grateful for the trade.
3. Baltimore Orioles
The Orioles went 6-1 to start the season and have been brutal since. It really stinks that the Orioles have had so many years under the radar. Having went to school near Baltimore, I had the chance to take in a few Baltimore games. The stadium is gorgeous, and probably one of my favorite stadiums to visit. Not to mention the $5 ticket special on Friday nights. The biggest blow came this season when Brian Matusz went down. Matusz is a guy the Orioles were leaning on to be their future ace. A Matusz-Britton 1-2 could be the 1-2 punch of the future.
2. Pittsburgh Pirates
The Pirates clinched their 19th straight losing season. Remember when they lead the NL Central? The Pirates showed promise, then pulled the rug from underneath the fans. I would say the Pirates show promise, but we all know any promising player will be traded for some prospects once they start to catch fire.
1. Houston Astros
If you reverse their record, they have the best record in baseball. That’s nothing to be proud of. The Houston Astros are the worst team in baseball. While the Astros are able to fill over 60 percent of their stadium on a nightly basis, it just isn’t a baseball city- talent- or fan-wise.
