mlb.tv/Extra Innings: who are your go-to teams?
I get the impression a lot of people who have the out-of-market packages end up gravitating towards a few teams, whether it's due to the broadcasters, certain exciting players, or perhaps nostalgia for previous incarnations of the teams. Who are yours?
Rays (love the management philosophy and many lf the players...wish they had a real ballpark)
Angels (Trout fanboy...plain and simple)
Nationals (young guns, great pitching, decent broadcasting teams, nice-looking stadium)
Giants (broadcasting, Posey... They've been my favorite NL team since I was a kid)
At this point though, I'll likely opt for Dodgers over Giants and Angels on West coast nights solely due to the Vin Scully factor.
plus Fenway and HOF weekend
plus St. Louis and Milwaukee
plus NYC parks and Minnesota
