Re: Post your MLB allegiance!

Angels. I grew up a Dodger fan (still like them) except for a couple years when I lived in San Francisco. I rooted for the As and Giants then. I went to an Angels game in the 70s and found the atmosphere at the Big A to be more family-friendly than Dodger Stadium. I didn't see the drunk gang bangers that frequent the Dodger games. Even though the Angels were a terrible teams most of those years, they still competed as if they were still in the post season race. When they beat the Giants in the 2002 World Series I was watching it with my then wife, who grew up a Giants fan. We were divorced a year later.

Re: Post your MLB allegiance!

I figured I'd let this thread go a few days before I answered, but I'll say Orioles, but it really doesn't matter - there's no point in caring. At least I'm old enough to enjoy the 1 title they'll have in my lifetime.

This is the only place where you'll see the Twins listed above the White Sox all year.

Until you check the standings. A big part of the Twins are wins.

Re: Post your MLB allegiance!

I became a Twins fan before I became a fan of the Cardinals.

I know of maybe three or four other people who root for both teams, my dad being one of them.

Twins fan here (Tigers were my favorite team growing up for some odd reason).

SF Giants. After all those years of waiting and hoping, they finally did it!

Reds.

Born in 1975, one of the greatest World Series. Vividly remember the 1990 World Series with the A's.

Glad to see such a great season as we had this past year as it has been a rough going for a long time. Still live and breathe for all things Reds. Hoping for a special year this year.

Cardinals, became a fan due to the Louisville Redbirds who for years was the AAA affiliate of the Cardinals.

My love affair with the game began as a boy when Louisville became the AAA affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. I attended many a game cheering on the Redbirds and guys like Willie McGee, Vince Coleman and Terry Pendleton. It was an easy choice to continue following these guys as they were called up to the big leagues.
WOW, this!

More than likely another year that will suck for the Royals. At least we will have the All star Game here in Kansas City for 2012.

Giants and to some degree the O's. Been to plenty of games at the 'stick and memorial stadium.

Re: Post your MLB allegiance!

Grew up in Eastern Washington so have been a Mariners fan my whole life. The last few years have been pretty rough (this year doesn't look any different!) but the Griffey, Randy Johnson and Edgar Martinez era was pure magic during my teen years. Went to quite a few games at the Kingdome during that time.

Re: Post your MLB allegiance!

Marlins, and I'm not surprised to be the first to say so. I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, and chose to root for no team rather than root for the Braves. Of course, Florida finally got a team the year after I moved here, so I have been following them since day one from afar, except for the handful of times that they are in town during the season.

I enjoy going to other Reds matchups for the experience, but I'm not a fan of the team...and I really hate the color red.
