    Need a favorite baseball team

    I've always been sort of interested in MLB..but I can't decide for a team to root for this season. Anyone got a team and a reason why I should cheer for them over another?

    If you like being in agony and getting made fun of, the Cubs are a good choice.

    Go for the Twins. New stadium, just locked up their best player to a big contract. Good a time as any to start following them.

    Cubs. Their issues seem to go hand in hand with ISU's. Plus, this is the year so best to get on the bandwagon now!!

    Atlanta Braves

    1) Bobby Cox. Any manager that has been tossed more times than any other manager is a guy you have to cheer for....right?

    2) Chipper Jones. True ball player. No roids

    3) The future. McCann at catcher. Heyward in the outfield. Hansen and Juirjenns pitching. Get on the train now!!

    Boston Red Sox.

    Great players, great history, greatest fans, historic ballpark, and they get to beat up on the Yankees!!

    Re: Need a favorite baseball team

    Pick a team that you'll be able to watch or listen to on the radio often. There is nothing more annoying than not being able to watch/listen to games.

    It's also more fun when you're around people who are interested in the same team.

    They aren't off to the best start but I would recommend the Braves as well.

    Re: Need a favorite baseball team

    Milwaukee. We make beer, our best player is a fat guy, a bunch of sausages run around the field in the 7th inning, and we don't talk about winning the Series every year and then cry and make excuses about goats when it doesn't happen. Not to mention we've never had to have a fan put in witness protection.

    On top of it all, our owner openly hates the Yankees.

    Cubs. If your an Iowa State fan you are used to the feelings of dispair and agony...

    Yes but did your GM coin the phrase naming the Yankees and Steinbrenner the "Evil Empire"?

    "The evil empire extends its tentacles even into Latin America."
    -- Larry Lucchino, Red Sox president, New York Times, Dec. 25, 2002, on the Yankees signing free agent Jose Contreras

    If anything, you can say that you bought when the stock was low and reap the benefits after they win the World Series.
