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.

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 :)

Rockies hands down. Holliday/Atkins keepers...I typically end up with Helton and pick up at least another one along the way.
