    Default Who's Your Favorite MLB Team?

    I have two. Both American League. The Oakland A's and the New York Yankees. Why those two teams? Because Reggie Jackson played on both. After Reggie retired, Rickey Henderson became my favorite player; he, too, played for Oakland and New York. Honestly, Rickey Henderson was the best player I ever saw. The Incredible Rickey Machine. I have his 1980 Topps rookie card.

    I roll with my hometown Phillies. Even though they stink on wheat and have the worst record in baseball, I won't abandon them!

    I am not proud to admit this, but I'm a Pirates fan. In other words, I hate baseball.

    The Bucs were mighty worthy when I was a kid. Yes, that was a long time ago, unfortunately.

    When your MLB has its own country, their fans don't need to call themselves "Blue Jays Nation".

    My two teams are the Toronto Blue Jays for the American League and the LA Dodgers for the National League. The Blue Jays are due to proximity. Living in Western New York, I'm 2-3 hours from Toronto depending on traffic, so I grew up supporting the Blue Jays before I really got into baseball. I got into baseball heavily over the last year or so and I spent a lot of time researching the history of the sport and I began to gravitate towards the Brooklyn Dodgers. Because I wasn't there and didn't have to experience the pain of losing my team, I continued to gravitate towards the LA Dodgers.

    I'm probably more of a Dodgers fan, but I can't abandon my childhood team.
