    1. St. Louis Cardinals (I'm a Cubs fan)
    2. Chicago White Sox (same)
    3. New York Yankees (because they buy championships)
    4. Arizona D'Backs (cause their fans are douchebags in my experience)
    5. Milwaukee Brewers (Cubs fan)

    I agree with number 4, at least from my experience at their park. It's funny because the team has 5 minutes of history and changes their uniforms completely. Way to build tradition.

    I hate both those teams.

    SF because I'm a Dodger fan.

    Oakland because people think Billy Beane walks on water and his teams always suck.

    MOST WINS IN THE '00S
    Team Record
    Yankees 965-651*
    Red Sox 920-699**
    Cardinals 913-706*
    Angels 900-720*
    Braves 892-726
    A's 890-728
    Twins 863-758
    Dodgers 862-758
    White Sox 857-764*
    Giants 855-762
    Phillies 850-769*

    No success from Beane huh???

    You forgot to count all their World Series, oh wait there aren't any. Not any deep playoff runs that I can remember.

    I see you are drinking the Kool Aid. Yeah taking all those walks is really working out, right Billy?

    Even President Barack Obama took jabs at the Yankees this week, cementing the fact that everybody -- except, of course, Yankee fans -- hates the World Champions. But are they actually the most loathed team in baseball?

    Contrary to popular belief, the Yankees are only the fifth-most despised team in the majors, according to an Internet algorithm built by Nielsen Co. that analyzes how people feel about certain things. This service typically uses various keywords to find out whether people have positive, negative or neutral reactions to different brands and products.

    No team registered a negative mark on Nielsen's "sentiment scale," which ranges from -5 to 5, but the Yankees (1.8) were one of only six teams to score lower than 2. The Mets finished four spots higher, making them the ninth most-hated team.

    "Even Yankee fans don't hate the Mets these days," says Benjamin Kabak, a writer for the River Avenue Blues Yankees blog. "We just feel bad for them."

    The San Francisco Giants (4.5) and Oakland Athletics (4.2) were the most-liked teams on this scale, suggesting that laid-back Northern California fans are the most accepting. But the Cleveland Indians' MLB-worst 0.9 was a bit of a surprise. They simply haven't done a lot over the past 13 years to warrant that much attention.

    "I can believe that though," says Ed Carroll, who runs the Deep Left Field Indians blog. "The team does a lot to alienate its fans."

    The unheralded Cincinnati Reds (1.5) and Houston Astros (1.8) were also in the basement.

    The good news for the Yankees is that their low score is better than the only team that really matters: The rival Boston Red Sox, who are the second most-despised team.

    I don't if this is so true or not but I'd say it's still the Yankees.

    I'd say it would have to be the Yankees and Red Sox as well. The Sox (along with the Cubs) were a team that most non-Yankee fans (White Sox/Cardinals fans in the case of the Cubs) rooted for until they won the Series in 2004 (wait 'til next year for the Cubs). Everyone then jumped on the bandwagon claiming to be Sox fans and the hatred has grown immensely.
    I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me.

    I'd have voted for the Pirates. This is 17 years without a winner, that would be a factor in my book because even with smaller revenues you can devote the resources into player development, which clearly they haven't done with much success.

    I don't have a problem with the Red Sox myself but their pink hat post 2004 fans are lame.

    This is my personal list

    1. Yankees- I hate the 25 and under fanbase. All they are is used to winnings They probably would be shocked to know the yankees could barely bring in 30,000 people during the donnie baseball era and the boss didn't build that 90's core group.

    2 braves- god it was so painful to watch year after year these guys kick our ass's. 06 was really sweet for me. Those 99 and 00 playoff games were fun to be at and watch. It was good times cursing out that piece of shit rocker and seeing shea go bat shit crazy. You don't fuck wit new yawk or the no 7 train and expect to get away wit it.

    Btw- the yankees don't go out and buy championships.

    they probably did this poll in Cleveland which is why the Indians came up. People hate the Indians here right now. They hate the owners and they hate the team. 2 years ago they were up 3-1 in the ALCS, now they suck because the owners are cheap and decided to trade away 2 Cy Young Winners and their All Star catcher and get a pile of shit in return. So this could be the case if you think about it because in the poll Im sure enough people said they liked the Red Sox to equal out the ones who hate them, for the Indians, nobody loves them, even their own fans hate them. If I were polled I would have answered the Indians even though they are my team.

    It is crazy what is happening with the Indians. To think that in the 90s, Jacobs field had what, like 4-500 straight sellouts. But hey, at least you guys have Lebron. But if Lebron leaves this summer, we might have to put sporst fans in Cleveland on suicide watch...

    It's funny and sad to think the Indians were ranked so high because their own fans hate them. I sympathize watching the Dodgers this year. In a winnable division they do asbolutely nothing in the offseason to help their
    pitching and now their offense isn't even scoring runs with Manny out.

    let's just say it's not a coincidence that none of those players has ever won a WS (nady doesn't count since he didn't play in playoffs). That list is a perfect example of why the team hasn't won in 20 years...those guys are average players at best (bay might be slightly above avg, but I'm not a big fan of his). McCutchen is the first good player to come out of the bucs system since barry bonds

    I was not comparing the Dodgers to the A's but if you want to you will be crushed. The A's are an absolute joke compared to the Dodgers, one of the most historic and iconic franchises in all of sports. I don't remember the A's coming out to the west coast first. The A's are second fiddle in the Bay Area to the Giants, a team that hasn't won a World Series in over 50 years and was in the middle of the steroid scandal with Balco. Even with all that, people still don't care about the A's.

    And you want to talk recently? The Dodgers went to the NLCS two years in a row, not just one in the 00s. Also I love the stat you put up where you highlight the A's wins vs. the Dodgers. So the A's won 28 (!!!!) more games than the Dodgers in a decade. You do realize that is averaging less than 3 more wins a year? I'm supposed to be impressed by that? Especially in that division the A's play in? You need to come stronger than that, son.

    Every GM makes bad signings. Jones had a horrible year with the Dodgers but has played better other places before and since. Schmidt got hurt. And Pierre? You actually bring up Pierre as a bad signing? He stepped up big time when Manny was out last year and was the main reason they didn't miss a step his whole suspension. Kemp and the whole team needs calling out right now. They are playing like shit. Maybe Colletti should sign real game changers like Bobby Crosby or Nick Swisher, players Billy Bean drools over.

    And I didn't even mention 1988.

    My vote is the Anaheim Angels of Los Angeles.

    First of all, they should still just be the California Angels. The new name is stupid.

    Plus they're Division rivals of my Mariners and Playoff rivals of my Yankees.

    Screw the Angels.

    spending the money to retain players is the most UNDERRATED part of teams "buying" a championship. although a bunch of us have been making fun of the ryan howard over-signing the fact that the phils can keep howard, utley, and rollins together while adding a halliday, or the yanks can keep jetes, posada, rivera, pettite, and pick up others is a luxury that small market teams can't enjoy. In other words it's not necessarily the free agents that large market teams can add, but the fact that they can use them to decimate a small market team's depth that makes baseball a relatively unfair system. Yes you can point to the fact that tons of different teams have made the playoffs and won world series, but baseball is also a pretty luck driven sport. Eh whatever I can't write anymore I'm all fucked up on booze and pain pills.
