Yeah there's a lot to hate about other teams in this league, but lets point out some good things about those teams. Is it a player, coach, owner, fanbase, or something completely different?

I'll start with the Indians. I really like Grady Sizemore and want him to do well because of the way he plays. Yes I hope the Indians lose most times but I still hope they lose with Sizemore having a good game.

Braves youngsters. Francoeur, McCann, and down on the farm Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Not to mention the Joneses, still good after all these years; nice to seem them still playing on the same team they came up with.

Though the Phillies quest for postseason glory has been just as futile as the Cubs, I like how its fanbase takes no pride in their losing and finds nothing loveable about their brutal history.

Everything. I just like baseball. :smile:

For the sake of following the topic, I'll add this. I really like what the Dodgers are doing. Ned Colletti has done a really good job of adding some solid veterans and mixing in their young talent. They have some impressive young players on that team and more on the way.

With the Pirates as my favorite NL team, I was thrilled that Jason Bay was a starter in the All-Star Game. He's one of the best young players in the game. Having been at PNC a few years ago, I think the Pirates play in a beautiful ballpark.

Mets: Delgado
Braves: Games on TBS. I love watching baseball
Nationals: Just glad they're out of Montreal. Wouldn't mind Soriano either. :D:
Marlins: Chicago baseball players scrapyard
Phillies: Giving up Jim Thome and essentially paying for Contreras' extension.

D'Backs: Pool in the ballpark
Rockies: Nice looking ballpark. Lots of homers
Giants: Jason Schmidt's big head
Dodgers: The lights that go off after a Dodgers player hits a homer. www.dodgersblues.com (http://www.dodgersblues.com) is a funny site as well

I know you said "name one thing", but I got more than one about the teams I like.

Brewers: Good young players, El Caballo, close enough to catch a game or two, plenty of tailgating
Cardinals: finally got a nice ballpark, always have excellent uniforms, seemingly always a contender
Tigers: I know we're supposed to hate them, but I just can't. They've been a "favorite other team" of mine since I was a kid. GREAT home uniform, the '84 team was unreal, the current team is a good mix of veterans and up-and-coming kids

I have always respected the braves. The team plays the game it should be played, is a clean, classy team. If you really had to define baseball, I think the braves would do it. When I was a kid in little league i wanted to pitch like Smoltz and Maddux and Avery. They have gone from Ron Gant to David Justice to Jeff Francouer. Just a classy team.

Twins-Santana, Liriano, and Mauer what more can ya ask for from a small market team(besides a ring)
Tigers-as much as I hate them right now, Bonderman, Zumaya and Verlander are filthy with a capital F. And they have Andrew Miller in a year or two. Talk about a possible 1-2-3 R-L-R combo in a couple of years and a possible lights-out closer. more filth.
Mets-Reyes and Wright. Perennial all-stars.
Cardinals-Pujols No explination necessary.
I can't think of anymore right now

Mediots haven't discussed it because they're still infatuated with the red sox and yankees, but the renaissance of midwest baseball is really, really good for the game. Revenue sharing has helped the regional franchises maintain fiscal responsibility to themselves and fans. With the perennial success of the cardinals, you have the white sox as world champs, coupled with detroit's renaissance, cincy in contention, and the promising young talent in minnesota, cleveland, and milwaukee. All bode well for the future of MLB. Now if the Pirates could just get a competent owner......

I'm a bit partial to the Mariners, but I love the young guys and how they are stepping up. Lopez, Betancourt, Jones, Putz, Hernandez, Woods, Lowe, Soriano. While this year may be a wash, I think the coming seasons will be exciting to see.

Angels, How can you not like Jered Weaver...He stole a spot in the starting rotation from his older brother. Figgins, as big of a pain in the hiney he is, he is a good little ball player.

I love watching good baseball so when the unexpected happens, I like the game win or lose.

I like the fact that the Mets are starting to get recognized as a legit baseball team and not just that other NEw York team. They have quality players and ESPN has gone on to say that they might win the World Series this year. They remind me of the Sox here in Chicago, you know, the "other chicago team".

The amazins are new york's 'other' team, but when they are playing well, the city has a different buzz to it. the '86 team had a bunch of jerks and grinders, but played unforgettable baseball throughout.

The Mets would be a great opponent for the Sox in the WS, for fans of pure baseball.

For me it's about players I enjoy watching. Though I will say I love the Marlins team for refusing to roll over and die just because everyone said they should due to their payroll this year.

I love watching Dontrelle Willis. I love watching Ichiro. I love watching Joe Mauer, David Wright, Miguel Cabrera, Ryan Howard, Francisco Liriano, Felix Hernandez, Jonathan Papelbon, and all the other young guys coming up who 10-15 years from now are the guys we will get to have the 500 HR and 300 Win and HOF watches for. I love watching Frank Thomas, Jim Thome, Bernie Williams, and all the other old vets giving it everything for one last shot at the ring.

I really hate very little about baseball. I hate our opponents that given day generally, and I tend to hate most things associated with the Chicago N.L. ballclub, but otherwise I love this game. It is a beautiful game to watch.

Tigers: I like the winning attitude and I'm happy for their fans
Jndians: nothing
Twins: I just like teams that play small ball, and they are kings of small ball
Royals: we get to play them 19 times

Bos: nothing
Yankees: I like the history of the team and they're classic
Blue Jays: I like them because they try to compete with the big teams
Rays: nothing, nothing at all
Orioles: I guess they're a classic team, but I don't feel anything for them

AL WEST: nothing

Cardinals: I really love the Cards. They always compete and put a great team on the field. I loved the teams from the 80's and the history of the Gas House Gang. They are the National League to me. No one compares to them.

Brewers: I'll always like the brew crew. The Sox could never beat the Brewers in the late 70's and early 80's. When the Royals were the powerhouse (they were once, really they were) I always wanted the Brewers to beat them.

Rest of NL: NOTHING

Twins: They've got some great pitching over there. And Mauer is awesome.
Tigers: I really like their uniforms.

Yankees: A franchise known for winning. Of course we all have to hate them a little bit, but they've also got my respect. Plus I do not like the Red Sox at all.
D'Rays: Scott Kazmir.
Blue Jays: Alex Rios, Vernon Wells, and Doc Halladay


In the NL...

Brewers: They've got a heap of young guys playing plus CLee.
Marlins: I like seeing the young guys play. I think Girardi is a great manager, too.

Same here. I could watch any game that's on TV.

I like:

- when the Mets wear their traditional pinstripe uniforms with the blue hats
- David Wright, Jose Reyes, Cliff Floyd, Jose Valentin, Pedro, the two Carloses, Mr. Met, etc etc.
- PNC Park
- the giant Tiger statues at Comerica Park
- suntanning in the upper deck at Rogers Centre
- Vin Scully calling Dodger games
- Ichiro preparing to swing
- Grady Sizemore
- Scott Kazmir
- Aaron Rowand and his bad routes :redface:
- and this may be cruel, but I like how the Cubs keep finding new and spectacular ways to lose games. :redneck

I think the Brewers are my second-favorite MLB team. I like the ballpark, the goofy promotions like the sausage races and how can you NOT enjoy Bob Uecker? And they're a Midwestern small-market team that gets ignored by the big elite media. Plus they have some players, like El Caballo. I hope some year soon they are the little engine that did.

The Cardinals also have among the best and most knowledgable fans in the game, as well as a well-run organization. They are ALWAYS in the hunt, and it's no accident.

I guess I'm partial to most Midwestern teams.

I really like the young players the Brewers have. I bought a 9 game plan from them and got a 10th game free, so I've been able to watch Fielder, Weeks, Hardy, and Hall play and play pretty well too, and being able to watch El Caballo again is somewhat of a treat.

Bobby Cox - Everybody loves playing for the guy; not too many managers can claim that.

Nomar Garciaparra - hit ritual between every pitch is funny.

6-4-3 - I love good defense.

Mariano Rivera - How many bats has this guy destroyed?

Too many more to list!

Mariners: My very-distant-second-favorite team. Great park, great city, great uniforms, and landing Ichiro was possibly the smartest thing any team has done in the last 25 years.

Brewers: Gotta agree about the goofy promotions and Bob Uecker.

Indians: Hats off to their fanbase. Totally devoted even in times of trouble - 455 straight sellouts even though, as my friend put it, "God hates Cleveland."

Twins: Developing elite players from within year after year - Santana, Mauer, Hunter, and now Liriano. Unbelievable.

Tigers: The long history of tough-guy players. Mean dudes for a mean city - absolutely beautiful.

Indian fans are a bunch of front runners. When the team was winning 94-97 or so, they sold out the place. From about 2000 on they didn't sell out and now when they were rebuilding those "fans" weren't coming to the games.

Cardinals: My other favorite team. I grew up lovin' Jordan and the Bulls, now I get to watch Pujols. I'm pretty fortunate to see such greatness. I only wish he had some pitching around and a healthy team in October, so he can get some rings.

Brewers: Just cool fans, great park, great ballplayers on that team. Plus, it's a great place to tailgate!

Yankees: As annoying as they are, I love a team so steeped in tradition and successful. It's hard not to respect that franchise. It's the fans I really can't stand sometimes. How do you boo A-Rod?!

Dodgers: Long-time, classy team. Usually a competitor, too.

D-Rays: I lived in Durham and saw some of those young studs play, and I hope they have some level of success.

I enjoy listening to the Brewers games. They always seem like 1 or 2 players short of a huge run.

I enjoy Padres games. Their stadium is nice and they're much like the Brewers as far as only being a player or two short of a huge run. The only difference is San Diego plays in a pretty unmotivated division where a 5-game winning streak can move you from last to first.

I'm amazed how the Braves can stay in contention all this time. They never give in. The fact that I can see their games is bittersweet. I like the Braves but their announcers are too sedated, even when they're in the middle of a big inning.

The Dodgers have always been my second favorite team. As for other teams, I just like watching baseball. There are a lot of good young players to watch in the game now. The Rockies, D-Backs, Marlins, etc. have a lot of young talent.

The teams in the AL Central, besides the Sox, can go to hell.

Twins: Love the fact that year in and year out, their staff gives up the fewest walks. Walks drive me nuts (except when the Sox draw them). Also love the fact that they proved that teams can win (at least the division) on a small budget. They weren't content to sit back and make a profit from their revenue sharing, ala KC.

So...how's this year's attendance at USCF looking compared to 2002? Are we a bunch of front-runners too? I know I have a hard time shelling out good money to watch a crappy team, regardless of what uniform they wear. I'd expect the same of any self-respecting sports fan.

Braves - all those division titles and bobby cox, their philosophy
Marlins(my second team) - They're one of the most successful organizations and yet have nothing to show for it, they're Youth Movement, the fact that their rotation is made up of nothing but (1-2s), Dan Uggla, Tankersly, one of the best farm systems in baseball, their FO sans Loria.

Cards - They're fans are full of baseball knowledge and extremely polite.
Cubs - always good for a punch line.
Bucs - Oliver Perez

I hate hate Yankees but I really like Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, and Joe Torre. They come across as very classy guys. I also think Jeter's both the most underrated and most overrated player. By that I mean he's not as bad as his critics suggest and not as great as those who love him think he is.

i like the cardinal, lots of history without the yankee attitude. the fans realy are good baseball fans. also still love tony. - extra bonus: they beat up on the scrubs.

other than that theres individual players i like on other teams but all other teams suck
