Most Underrated MLB Teams

The Top TenXW

1Oakland Athletics

They are so underrated that you hardly see them in any of these lists it is just sad. They won the AL west last season yet nobody cares. Everyone pays attention to the Giants. They have won 9 world series, third in the whole league. The Giants have only won 7. and the A's have had a 20 game long win streak which is the record (AL I think) but anyways people don't notice how amazing this team is.

Unlike many teams on this list, the A's are world series contenders almost every year. They work with bottom five payroll every year. They are number 3 in world series titles as well. With Cespedes, Donaldson, and their sensational pitching staff and bullpen they should be division favorites. They are my world series favorite because they get really hot, really fast.

Will win there division. But world series would be a stretch,

I hate them but they are underrated - charlieyourboss

2Milwaukee Brewers

Probably one of the best offenses out there just not the greatest pitching staff.

4Seattle MarinersThe Seattle Mariners are an American professional baseball team based in Seattle, Washington. Enfranchised in 1977, the Mariners are a member of the West division of the American League in Major League Baseball.

They have the pitching and defense. People just think they suck because they have no offense but when they get offense, they'll be tough. (they won 116 games too)

I like Seattle people think that they suck but they are very good even with no World Series wins there still great

The additions of Kendrys Morales & Michael Morse will add much needed offense to this line-up. They have a young core of talented players who could all continue improving this year. This includes Jesus Montero, Kyle Seager, Dustin Ackley, and Justin Smoak. They have one of the best defenses in baseball headlined by Brendan Ryan and a healthy Franklin Gutierrez. And finally, a capable pitching staff that includes King Felix. Don't count this team out. They'll surprise many baseball analysts this year.

5Kansas City Royals

KC barely got any credit in 2014-2015. All the comeback wins. Remember when they swept Oakland,Los Angeles, AND Baltimore to get to the World Series. They ALMOST Won it all and nobody saw it coming

6Baltimore Orioles

Every single season the Orioles are projected to come in either 4th or 5th. Writers sadly try to back up these picks with predictions that turn into completely incorrect events every season. 2014 was predicted as a last place finish and the os got to the alcs even with there weak pitching. Even more, the Orioles have one of the best batting line ups in the mlb with not one batter that can't hit over 15 home runs this season including the rookie Joey rickard. Our pitching has been off to a great start and that's what's going to be the make it or break it for us from being in 4th or 5th to the top two spots in the al east. We added trumbo and Alvarez to the home run crew and I believe manny mac hasp and Jonathan schoop will have their best seasons of their careers this season. Orioles and Jay's for the top two spots

7Arizona Diamondbacks

Pitching, defense, not consistent offense but when they do, watch out!

8Toronto Blue JaysThe Toronto Blue Jays are a Canadian professional baseball team based in Toronto, Ontario. The Blue Jays are a member of the East division of the American League in Major League Baseball, and play their home games at Rogers Centre.

I remember finding out these guys were the least popular MLB team and being really surprised. Come on, people. Just because they aren't from the US doesn't mean they're a bad team.

its just because there canadian everybody forgets how they do really have done well in the tough AL east every year since 2006 - proxYgen

The Blue Jays have Drake. He needs a One Dance like the Blue Jays need more rings. - GlobStudios

They have really changed the team in 2012, with new veterans (ex. Darren Oliver), and young guys with big potential (ex. Brett Lawrie). The pitching rotation is very young and in a few years I think they have a shot at their 3rd World Series title.

9New York MetsThe New York Mets are an American professional baseball team based in New York City. They play in Flushing, in the borough of Queens.

Despite having a very short and unsuccessful record the Metropolitians have had three seasons with more than one hundred wins. Combine that with four world series appearances and two world series victories. Along with many skilled players such as Matt Harvey, David Wright, Bobby Valentine, Johan Santana who pitched a No-Hitter in the 2012 season against the St. Louis Cardinals, etc. The Mets are a very underrated Ballclub.

Let's go Mets, let's win it all this year! - GlobStudios

10Colorado Rockies

Consider that they do play in a hitters ballpark, so that is where their offense comes from

The Contenders

11Florida Marlins

The marlins won two world series with nobodies and are the only team in the world to have won a championship in every one of the franchises playoff appearances and yet they are always disrespected by the national media

The marlins have became so far this year 53-54 from last years 62-100 they also in 2014 have been in playoff contention

12Cincinnati Reds

Why not? They have been hitting like madmen and have a solid record to prove it, but how often do you see them on ESPN? That's right... Never

13Minnesota Twins

Remember in 2015 when the held first place over the Royals for a full week of baseball? Remember when they beat the Texas Rangers 17-5 this year. Yeah.

I think the twins are the best team

14Washington Nationals

The Nationals r on fire this season. They have the best record in the N.L East and lead by 5 or 6 games. Their 2015 and 2016 season has been amaizing.

15Chicago CubsThe Chicago Cubs are an American professional baseball team based in Chicago, Illinois. The Cubs compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the National League Central division.

This should be number one! They trailed 3-1 in the world series against the Cleveland Indians and made a HUGE comeback to win the series 4-3. I don't see why people aren't still talking about this! P.S. they also became the 4th team in MLB history to win the series as an AWAY team. IN MLB HISTORY!

18Saint Louis Cardinals
19New York YankeesThe New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City, New York, that competes in Major League Baseball.

Seriously? Underrated? They are overrated. - Juniorxtrm
