      The Mets lose more so, based on the formula, sure, they’re more die-hard because the formula rewards attendance relative to losses. Don’t know how that gets us an accurate measurement of fan loyalty but it definitely was a pretty map.

      The graph is what I expected.

      The Northeast fan base is rabid. The Astros have a surprisingly decent fanbase.

      But honestly, do we expect anything less from the Boston, New York, Philadelphia “megapolis”?

      Doesn’t surprise me. Think about it – if you identify as a Mets fan in this town, and during this era, you’re pretty hardcore. Being a Yankee fan, not so much.
