Any team with less than 10 championships should not be on the list.
I've been waiting for thirteen years... it looks like we have a chance this time around. It's been a long while since I was really excited about a Toronto team. I just wish the Jays still wore their old uniforms, they were so much better than the black ones they wear now.
That leaves two teams. And if tehy were the only options, I think Id be rooting for the MLB to fold.
Least Favorite: NYY
GO Dodgers and the Angels too, I guess.
Oakland A's ten char
"Oakland A's" is eleven characters...
Double your pleasure, the TWINS, DUH!!!!
Major League Batting Champion
Major League Most Valuable Player
Major League Cy Young Winner
Need i say more!!!
Seattle Mariners. Looks like the only one!
blue jays are the only ones over 10%. I guess its because the expos left, so now we know its support or die.
Still hasn't got 'em filling SkyDome.
I think it's largely because the Jays have almost the whole of an entire country supporting them, even if they are based in the cesspool of evil known as Toronto.
mine as well
Just remember, we made the Clippers great! I don't remember why they changed affiliation, though.
And completely overlooked this thread.
Giants! And since I have season tickets there, I'm going to the All-Star game! Woohoo!
I am, and always have been, through thick and thin, A loyal New York YANKEES fan!!!!!
That must be hell emporer only winning. Every 6 seasons.
IIRC, the Yankees-Clippers deal was expiring, and the Yankees wanted a farm team closer to home where there would be more fans. There's a lot of people in Columbus who are die-hard Indians fans and can't stand the Yankees, and thus wouldn't go to Clippers games, so that hurt attendance. Plus just being closer to New York would help the Yankees' AAA affiliate attendance (now they're in Scranton Wilkes-Barre). I'm not sure if not being a Yankees affiliate has helped the Clippers' attendance is reality - haven't seen any stats since the end of April.
The move might have had something to do with the Clippers having the oldest stadium in the International League (75 years old right now). But they're getting a new stadium in 2009, so I doubt that was a deal-breaker. The current one is nice enough, and rather a classic.
The Yankees did bring baseball back to Columbus, and there have been some good teams since then. But it's been awhile since the Clippers were great (1997 was their last championship appearance).
Just got back from a Clippers doubleheader earlier tonight. They won both games, allowing only one run combined. The game I went to last week, the Clippers threw a shutout. Looks like the Nationals might have some good pitchers coming up within a year or so. As an Indians fan, I find it more fun now that they're the Nationals' farm team rather than Yankees'. But I still like the name Clippers - I'm sure downtown's suggestion wouldn't make it!
Meh, I don't know how many Yankees fans live near Scranton or would be willing to go to Scranton. We do have the Staten Island Yankees, however, they are a Class A team. Never went to see them or the Brooklyn Cyclones, a Mets-affiliate. Perhaps sometime when I'll be able to drag my way all the way to Staten Island.
St. Louis Cardinals, won the world series despite every single starter on our team being placed on the Disabled list and some point and time in the season. Got everyone back and completely uninjured just in time to kick some Mets and Tigers butt.
Although, it seems we've carried out injuries with us into this season .
