Yankees fan, but liked Seattle and Expos/Angels because of Ichiro and Vlad.
Then grabbed them both through trades and everything else is gravy.

Oakland fan :-D
Being in two dynasty leagues, I'm always drawn to younger players like a moth to a flame.
So I enjoy watching Milwaukee and Tampa Bay very much. Gallardo, Hart, Weeks, Fielder, Parra etc and Shields, Upton, Sonnanstine, Gomes, Longoria etc are fascinating to me.
I don't think I've seen either of these teams play yet (Australia only usually has 3 random games a week), but I find myself following them in the box scores.

I'm a Mets fan and lucky enough to have Wright, Reyes, Maine and Church, but I'll also be rooting for those Tampa Bay Rays because of Carlos Pena, Kazmir, Shields and Sonnanstine.

Last season I have Holliday, Atkins, and Tulo so I was a Rockies fan. I don't seem to have a concentration of players for any one team this season except for Verlander, Guillen, Pudge, and Willis in a H2HWS team. Total homer I was. :-D

hmmm. I really don't even think about how the teams are doing that have my fantasy players on them. I'm a Tribe fan and thats all that really matters to me as far as rooting for teams. Of course, if I have three Rockies' hitters, I root for them to score a ton of runs, but frankly, I don't care if they win or lose. Even if I have a pitcher going up against the Tribe, I root for the Tribe first (and hope its a 1-0 game). I'll get the W somewhere else.

Most of the time I hate the Rockies but found a sweet spot for them because on one NL only team I had Holliday,Atkins,Hawpe,Corpas, and Francis. Got to see them a lot last year due to them being in the same division as the Dbacks and found myself rooting silently in my head for them to get a hit or two :)
