Favorite Major League Baseball Teams

The Top Ten
1 Yankees The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City, New York, that competes in Major League Baseball.

Okay, okay, okay. The Red Sox have had success in the 2010s, even winning the World Series in 2013. But, they made a bad mistake when they traded Jacoby Ellsbury to the Yanks. They do have a very devoted fan base, and I have great respect for that. But, being raised by a family that are die-hard Yankees fans, I still have to say that the Red Sox stink.

But overall, they have a great roster and a loyal fan base.

Um, 40 World Series appearances and 27 won, and they have the team with the most elected Hall of Fame players. If you go to Yankee Stadium, it's louder than any concert. We have the best bleacher creatures, the best players and managers, and we have broken more records than any other team. I mean, #YankeeNation has been trending for two years. What about you?

2 Blue Jays The 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 do like the Blue Jays. Heck, they're my third favorite team. They did beat the Yankees, and that is AWESOME. But my favorite team is the Yankees. Still, the Jays are very underrated. They have a whole country rooting for them! What's not to love? Go Yankees, and go Jays. Plus, they have AWESOME throwback logos.

Because a whole country loves them, they won back-to-back World Series (and were cheated out of another)... and their throwback hats look super fresh!

The Blue Jays might not be the top team every year, but they're the best, especially when you compare them to the Yankees, who had only two good players. We have R.A. Dickey and Jose Bautista.

3 Red Sox The Boston Red Sox are an American professional baseball team based in Boston, Massachusetts, that competes in Major League Baseball.

As the list is for the most favorite team, not the best team, I vote for the Sox. They have the most loyal fans (along with the Cubs), and we have stuck with them for 86 years against our powerful rivals, the Yankees. It hurt to see the Yankees repeatedly winning while we lost, but we held on.

Now, in the 21st century, they have won three championships and are great! Go Sox!

The Red Sox are an amazing team, or used to be back when Francona managed. Now we have lost Youkilis, who was one of our best players. Our only other good players are Ortiz and Pedroia. Ellsbury gets hurt too much, so his career will be short.

But the Red Sox used to be great, and in a few years, they will be great again. The Yankees have such a big budget, and the Red Sox are the underdog. Who doesn't like the underdog?

4 Giants

This is the team with the fourth-most World Series wins. They also won it twice in three years: 2010, 2012, and 2014. I thought maybe 2016, but no, Cubs and Indians. Maybe 2017? No, Dodgers and Astros. 2018 right now? Nope, Red Sox and Dodgers. I hate the Cubs and Dodgers.

They should be higher than 23. They have won the World Series seven times, fifth overall. They have great players like Posey, Sandoval, and many more. Anyway, how did they go from number 9 to 23?

Excuse me? Number 12? Okay, people are tripping. This is the best team! I'm not saying that just because of the World Series, everyone. I'm a hardcore Giants fan!

5 Cardinals The St. Louis Cardinals are a professional baseball team based in St. Louis, Missouri. The Cardinals compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the National League Central division.

The St. Louis Cardinals are an amazing team, not just because I live in St. Louis but because the fans are always kind to each other. There's no really loud yelling, and no throwing stuff. The players are the same. I met some of them and they are all very nice and play because they love the game and want to make St. Louis #1, not for fame and money.

The Cardinals are an amazing team and I'm proud to live in St. Louis because of them.

The best baseball team. The Yankees are first for two reasons:

1. They were a good team, so people bandwagon.
2. When you compare New York to Missouri, there is a huge difference in population. Missouri has about 6 million, while New York has about 20 million.

Sure, the Yankees are a good team. They had good players, but the Cardinals are what baseball is about.

6 Dodgers

The Dodgers have a great starting rotation. Not the best, but pretty good. They had an amazing offense in 2019, and not to mention their six-time postseason appearances.

The Dodgers are the best team EVER. Just blame the whole 2017 World Series thing on Yu Darvish.

I like the Angels, but the Dodgers will have to do. West Coast boys gotta stick together.

7 Cubs The 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.

The Cubs have the best fans in professional sports. We've stuck with them generation after generation. Wrigley Field is the most historical ballpark in professional sports, and they have the best uniforms. Players like Joe Tinker, Frank Chance, Charlie Hollocher, Mordecai Brown, Ryne Sandberg, Mark Grace, Ron Santo, and Ernie Banks make any true baseball fan realize that the Cubs still have a long tradition of excellence despite their World Series drought, which will come to an end soon.

Founded in 1876. A stadium built in 1916. A hand-turned scoreboard. Ivy on the walls. Lake Michigan less than a mile away. Seventeen National League championships. Five million people at the 2016 World Series celebration. The best logo in baseball. Home address for "The Blues Brothers" and Ferris Bueller's favorite place.

8 Pirates The Pittsburgh Pirates are a professional American baseball league based in Pittsburgh. The Pirates compete in Major League Baseball as part of the Central division of the National League. They play their home games at PNC Park.

I love the Pirates for two reasons:

1. You never know if they're going to win or lose.

2. Being a Pittsburgh native for 21 years (best city ever), I also love them because they are close.

I love the Pittsburgh Pirates. Once I went to a game, and it was so much fun. The Pirates are my favorite MLB team.

I've been going to games since I was a little boy, and to see them do well brings tears of joy to my eyes. Let's go, Buccos 2014!

9 Braves The Atlanta Braves are an American professional baseball franchise based in the Atlanta metropolitan area. The franchise competes in Major League Baseball as a member of the National League East division. They play their home games at SunTrust Park.

Even though they can't win now, I will never fully give up on them. I'm not that big of a bandwagon fan. Once they fix their pitching staff, they're ready. The lineup is pretty good. #2019WildCard #2020NLDS #2021NLCS #2022WorldSeries

The Braves have one of the best teams. Seven players got voted to be in the All-Star Game. Are you kidding me? The Braves should be top 5 at least.

Atlanta is the best! Freddie Freeman forever!

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

World Series appearance this year! The Yankees haven't been in a World Series since 2009 and haven't been in the playoffs for three years. Also, even when the Mets are bad, they're still the "Lovable Losers." Plus, the only reason the Yankees are good is because they have lots of money. Lastly, the Mets have loyal fans. Ninety percent of Yankees fans are only fans because the Yankees win a lot. When the Yankees lose, their fans pretend to be fans of another team.

Ugh, stupid Yankee fans, the Mets are awesome! Definitely underrated in real life and video games. The Mets team has great hitting and really good fielding. Hopefully, the Mets make the NL wild card in 2015!

The Contenders
11 Orioles

The O's should be up there because:
A. They have the nicest stadium in all of Major League Baseball.
B. You can get fries with a crab cake on the side.
C. They consistently perform extremely well in baseball's toughest division.

No other team in the MLB has to get through the Toronto Blue Jays, Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox, and New York Yankees to get to the playoffs. Beat that, Cubs and Dodgers!

I say O's because we are again a competitive team. With Matt Wieters, probably the best catcher in the American League right now. We have Chris Davis, home run leader and second most RBIs, and Adam Jones with a lot of runs. An amazing bullpen with Jim Johnson, with the most saves in the American League. And Chris Tillman is in third right now with the most wins.

Just a couple of Orioles who are doing great so far and will continue. And also, with our three World Series wins. So GO ORIOLES!

12 Athletics

The A's, what can I say! One of the smallest budgets in baseball. Each year they field talented young players who are just coming up from the minors and love to play baseball. Their pitching is always young, with new faces no one has heard of, and yet by year's end, they're sporting one of the best ERAs in the league. These young guys play with heart and not for money!

Oh yeah, let's not forget about the managers who make this happen. Overall, a fun team to watch and be part of. They have what baseball has been missing: HEART, not money. GO A's!

13 Phillies

Okay. The Phillies may have only won the World Series twice, but they are really gaining potential. With the fifth-lowest payroll in the MLB, the lineup and rotation only have a few flaws, unlike the Yankees who buy their wins. Plus, the fans may be strict, but aren't front-runners.

Just think, if the Yankees only had two World Series wins, like the Phillies, how many fans would they have? Not as many, that's for sure. The Phillies use their heart, teamwork, and sportsmanship every single game.

The Phillies are our home team! They may not be doing so well right now, but we still love them. We've got lots of loyal fans who will never give up on them. Maybe next year is going to be their year!

14 Mariners The 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.

Let's go Mariners! We have Julio Rodriguez (AL Rookie of the Year 2022), Cal Raleigh (who got us into the playoffs in 2022), and I could name a whole bunch of other players. We are going to win the World Series sometime.

They have Robinson Cano on the team now, and they have had great players in the past, such as Randy Johnson, Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez, Raul Ibanez, Kendrys Morales, Brendan Ryan, and Ichiro. But they still have great players, such as Felix Hernandez, Iwakuma, Fernando Rodney, Kyle Seager, Michael Saunders, Mike Zunino, James Jones, Endy Chavez, Nick Franklin, Brad Miller, Willie Bloomquist, James Paxton, Danny Farquhar, Justin Smoak, Logan Morrison, and Corey Hart.

Give the Mariners a chance. They're a good team! Saying that they're not "up to par" is just plain stupid. Four Mariners went to the All-Star game in 2014.

Let me say this as well: if they're not up to par, then are Randy Johnson, Ken Griffey Jr., Felix Hernandez, Iwakuma, Kyle Seager, and Fernando Rodney not popular?! I think they're not the "best yet," but they're better than the Twins, Royals, Texas, Philadelphia, and Houston. I hope you like my opinion!

15 Indians The Cleveland Guardians are an American professional baseball team based in Cleveland, Ohio. The Guardians compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the American League Central division.

Way better than any other team in the league. This is shown by the strength of attendance at their games (when it's dollar dog night, student ID night, and fireworks all at once).

Young talent, and we are coming back with a vengeance in 2012! Watch your back, Central Division, because it won't be easy.

Not the best team in baseball, but they show that they have fight. I say that because they haven't been in the World Series for 50-something years. They show that they never give up.

16 Tigers

What could you possibly hate about the Tigers other than them being better than your team for years on end?

True sportsmanship at its best. And with the improvements of Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera, who can possibly stop this team?

Do three straight appearances in the ALCS mean anything?

17 Angels

They have the best player, along with Pujols and Gold Glove winner Calhoun. Give it a couple of years, and we will see them in the playoffs.

I love this team. They have the best pitcher ever, K-Rod. Vote for Angels.

If I had to describe the Angels in a word, it would be underrated.

18 Royals This MLB team, part of the American League Central division, hails from Kansas City, Missouri. Known for their World Series titles, they play at Kauffman Stadium. The Royals' team colors include royal blue, gold, and white.

The Royals are a great team. It's a small market, so media buzz is hard to get, but the stars on the team are glad to play in the Royals organization. The fans are very supportive, and we cheer through good times and bad. Loyal Royal. They won the 2015 World Series.

In 2014, their postseason win-loss record was an amazing 11-4, the best postseason record for any team that didn't win the World Series. They were so close to winning in 2014 that the final swing could have been the walkoff win. Winning the World Series in 2015 was easier, in five games, but it was thrilling! Thank you, Royals!

19 Twins Representing Minneapolis, Minnesota, this MLB team competes in the American League Central division. They host their home matches at Target Field and have won several World Series championships. The Twins sport navy blue, red, and gold uniforms.

One of the best teams ever! They have a great fan base and are 2-time World Series Champs! Go Twins!

The Twins are cool and good. Go Twins!

20 Rays

The Rays are the best. They have the smallest salary in the league, but you can always count on them to kick the Red Sox and Yankees' butts! This team has a very low salary, but they are in first place in the division right now, above the Yankees. They don't buy all the good players. They use what they have and beat the Yankees.

Also, with no major rivalries (except a small rivalry with the Red Sox), you can't really dislike them.

One of the two youngest teams in baseball, with the second lowest salary cap in baseball, and yet they find a way to compete and beat the Yankees and Red Sox. What's not to love?

21 Brewers This Major League Baseball team competes in the National League Central division and represents Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Home games are played at American Family Field. Renowned for their signature Barrelman mascot, the team's colors are navy blue and gold.

MLB's best fans. They spent $60 million last year, which is less than the Dodgers spent on all their players on the disabled list, yet still had top-half attendance. The city loves the team, and the rebuild is underway.

Even though they have never won a World Series, at least they're not the worst team in World Series history. No offense, but the Mariners have never even made it to a World Series.

It's a favorite team, so using titles shouldn't really be talked about. Love me some Brewers. Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Geoff Jenkins, Rollie Fingers, and Prince Fielder. What's not to love?

22 Reds Located in Cincinnati, Ohio, this MLB team belongs to the National League Central division. With a storied history that includes multiple World Series titles, they play their home games at Great American Ball Park. Their primary team color is red.

The first-ever professional baseball team! No other teams would be here if it weren't for the Reds! The Big Red Machine and Nasty Boys are also two big factors to consider. Hometown team! Suarez, Puig, Votto... Like, why not #1?

First baseball team ever. Five championships. When you have a club nicknamed the Big Red Machine, you're good.

The Big Red Machine, of course, Nasty Boys, what else can you say? First professional baseball team.

23 White Sox Representing the South Side of Chicago, Illinois, this Major League Baseball (MLB) team is part of the American League Central division. The White Sox have won multiple World Series titles and play at Guaranteed Rate Field. Their uniform colors are black, white, and silver.

Who cares about what's going on on the East Coast? If Manny hits a homer or A-Rod strikes out, it becomes a federal case around the country because of biased ESPN and Yankees and Red Sox fans. No one cares what they do. We've never gotten any respect! When we took it all home in '05, no one even talked about us then. When we go all the way again in '08, we're going to rub it in everyone's face and get the respect we deserve!

We're the only SOX. Share the Passion. Show the Swagger. White Sox #1 all the way!

Always looked down upon when put up against the Cubs. The Cubs? How do people convince themselves that the Cubs are better than the White Sox? The stupid curse is just there so Cubs fans can have an excuse for why their team can't seem to win in the playoffs.

24 Rangers

The Rangers do NOT have obnoxious, selfish fans like the Yankees and the Giants. We were very close to winning the World Series in 2010 and 2011. We're not a bandwagon team, which makes us have the BEST fan base. We don't cry when we lose the World Series, either.

The Rangers are a team that you just can't hate. They aren't always champions, but the fans stay true to the team even when they are not doing well. Plus, they're in the best state ever!

Hey, I love Texas, and I love the Rangers. To me, they should be number one. They should have won the World Series in 2011. They were a strike away from winning it twice. Come on, everyone loves Texas!

25 Nationals

Not this year, but the Nationals will be a major threat in upcoming years as Bryce Harper and Strasburg mature, since this team is generally still young and ready to roll.

This team is young, but they have great potential and lots of good players.

Boss team with Harper, Murphy, Zimmerman, and Strasburg. Go Nats! They deserve 1st place, not 24th place.
