Most Popular MLB Teams 2011 – Harris Poll

Main Site » Blog Home » Sports Talk » Most Popular MLB Teams 2011 – Harris Poll

Every year our good friends at Harris Interactive post a list of the most popular Major League Baseball teams. Not surprisingly the Yankees are the most popular team in baseball, with the Red Sox, Braves, Cubs and Dodgers rounding out the top 10.

Anything look amiss to you in that top 5? OK, I will give you a hint, their owner is the worst in professional sports and is bringing one of the most historic franchises in all of professional sports to it’s knees because of personal problems. Still don’t know? This owner is from Boston, he is trying to get a TV deal with FOX and “Not pay personal expenses with the money” even though he has no money outside of the team.

If you guessed Frank McCourt and the Dodgers, you are correct! They are actually up in this list from 8 last year to 5 this year. (Actually makes me question the validity of the poll…just sayin’).

There are some other funny looking rankings on this poll as well…Are the Royals really more popular than the Angels? If that is true, that is a huge slap in the face of poor Arte Moreno, a truly good owner. There is a distinct east coast bias for teams, the next west coast team after the LA McCrooks is the Seattle Mariners and they stink. Sorry Seattle fans, it’s true.

Anyway, without further ado, here are the top…and bottom teams in the MLB.
