I am surprised the entire map isn't Red Sox and Yankees.

The Braves doesn't go far enough north. I went to school in Roanoke, VA and they were Braves fans, not Pirates.

I've said it once before, and I'll say it again: I don't understand how the Rangers have a bigger fanbase than the far more successful Houston Astros.

Should this be in teal? It's true that the Rangers have been huge failures, but I don't think Houston has really been that successful either. They have been around since the 60s yet have only one pennant to show for it. Like the Rangers, they have never won a World Series, or even won a game in the World Series for that matter.

Yeah, the Astros aren't exactly the greatest team ever, but considering that the Rangers have only one playoff win in their entire existance (1-9 overall postseason record), I'd say that makes the Astros more successful in my book, even if they've only won one pennant. One is better than none at all.

Plus:
Rangers: 3 postseason appearances (1996, 1998, 1999)
Astros: 9 postseason appearances (1980, 1981, 1986, 1997-1999, 2001, 2004, 2005).

Neither team has really been truly successful, but the Astros usually put more competitive teams on the field. I'd assume that if you have more competitive teams on the field, you would have a bigger fanbase. I don't know....

The Sox range is terribly off. It contains far to much to the north and west, and doesnt include enough of NW Indiana

Why is this in teal? It really is surprising.

Couldn't we say same about our boys and the cute and cuddlies?

Its a fun little map, but its really not researched well. I wish someone would put together a map like this with better research.

First of all, no one but no one follows baseball here in New Orleans, and probably all of Louisiana.

To say we're Astros territory is silly. Yeah, its our TV area (I think), but no one cares.

People in Louisiana follow the Saints and LSU football, that's about it.

They probably had to fit the Sox logo in

Another problem with this map is that there are areas where fan base is split, such as northwest Indiana having a split of Sox and Cubs fans.

Yeah, it didn't include my house in Downers Grove where my Dad/Mom/brother were all flubs fans, and lonely me had a brain.
