• Most Hated Teams

    Posted by on July 29th, 2010 · Comments (12)

    S.I.com ranks their “25 most hated teams in sports history.”

    The 1978 New York Yankees, 1986 New York Mets, 1974 Oakland Athletics, 1919 Chicago White Sox and 1909 Detroit Tigers all made the list from baseball.

    How did the 2004 Boston Red Sox miss the cut? In any event, which baseball teams did you hate the most?

      2010 Yankees.

      I don’t like rooting for this historically great player they have, they only beat bad teams, and their GM is my arch nemesis.

      Any team with Jonathan Papelbon and/or Josh Beckett on the roster automatically qualifies for me.
      Add in the 01 Douchbacks for good measure.

      Because everyone outside of the Bronx was rooting for them. They were a team with a mix of stars (Manny, Schilling, Pedro), “regular joe” types (Mueller, Millar, Varitek, Mientkiewicz, Cabrera, Lowe) and previous unknowns that became stars, to a certain extent (Ortiz/Damon). They broke the so-called Curse of the Bambino and they beat what was, at the time, a Yankee team that wasn’t particularly amiable in any way.

      I understand why no one hated the ’04 Sox. My only irritation was how the media became fanboys as well.

      The 2003 and 2004 Sox, no doubt.

      Also:

      The ’01 D-Backs, the ’03 Marlins, the ’02 and ’05 Angels, the ’06 Tigers and any playoff team with Torii Hunter’s big mouth.

      The 04 Red Sox were loved; from idiots, to “cowboy up” to coming back from a 3-0 series deficit, beating the mighty Yankees in the process, to extinguishing the curse…

      It’s funny; hockey is not in my top two, but I hate the Flyers of 1973-4-5 more than anyone. When they played the Russians, I was stumped as to who to root for.

      But then, I was only 16.
