Who do you root for?

Postby jefferey13 » Wed Apr 24, 2013 7:53 pm

So who is first priority to root for? Your favorite team or your fantasy team?

I have Matt Harvey going against my dodgers tonight and it makes it a bit difficult. Just was curious who you root for to get the W?

I route for my job or my significant other if necessary. In baseball I root for my fantasy team these days. Back pre-2004 I would root for the Red Sox, but since they won I'm more into my fantasy teams now and I enjoy rooting for other MLB franchises who I think operate smartly or have my favorite players (Oak, Was, Tor)

My favorite players I root for above all else and I try and have them on my fantasy teams if they aren't horrible. My favorite 3 players are Torii Hunter, Adam Rosales and Rick Ankiel.

I root for the Royals until they play themselves out of anything meaningful, which usually has been about this time each year, so that gives me a lot of time to just root for my fantasy team. At this point though, I'm rooting for the Royals....and I want to throat punch Yost right now.

If you root for fantasy over your favorite MLB team, you're a Communist. With the caveat being once they're out of contention, if you yourself aren't, all bets are off.

Indians fan unfortunately. But these past past years, dating back to mid 2000's, it has become really hard to stay a fan of this team as I have seen so many great players traded away for players who turn out to be absolute crap or just crap players right away.

Location wise I am basically in the middle of a triangle between Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Detroit so I get all 3 teams on TV every night. I've really started to love watching the Reds play these past couple seasons. Young, exciting, and talented guys. Dusty Baker just is terrible lol. And I'll watch the Tigers whenever Verlander, Scherzer, and Fister take the hill. Love watching JV pitch and MCab/Prince hit.

Twins MiLB prospects (exciting times down there) then Twins then fantasy

In reality the Twins stink (but currently >.500) so I don't have an issue with a great fantasy performance against them.

The worst possible thing happened for me, the Dodgers lost in 10 and Harvey didn't get the win.
