When it comes to the most hated team in Major League Baseball, a majority of fan bases will tell you they can’t stand the New York Yankees.
Whether it’s because they have a ridiculous amount of championship rings, their crazy fan base, or they just can’t stand the franchise trying to create super teams every year, you will get an assortment of reasons as to why people don’t like it.
According to a graphic that was based on Geotagged Twitter Data, Casinoinsider.com was able to work out which team was the most hated of each American state.
As you could assume, the New York Yankees are the most hated team.
The state breakdown was as follows:
Yankees – 28 states
Cubs – eight states
Dodgers – five states
St. Louis Cardinals – four states
New York Mets – four states
Red Sox – one state
It’s not a shock that L.A. and New York teams acquire the 2 spots in the top-3. Once upon a time, the Chicago Cubs were the lovable loser who couldn’t win a World Series to winning one in 2016 and being hated by multiple states.
