    The 9th Most Popular Baseball Team

    The Buzz on Baseball
    By Mike Krumboltz

    Baseball season is back and searches on America's pastime are swinging for the fences. While players took the field, dedicated fans pushed searches on "MLB" up an impressive 64%.

    A look at the demographics shows the sport is popular all over, but it's particularly big in New England. Massachusetts ranks first in buzz, followed by Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York. Other interesting opening day searches: "baseball salaries," "baseball tickets," "mlb stadiums," and "derek jeter pictures." Queries on "bud selig shirtless" remain scant.

    Of course, despite the individual stars and personalities, baseball is a team sport. Here are all 30 big league squads ranked in order of buzz. Read on, enjoy, and play ball!

    Interesting. Not too many suprises, but I would have expected St Louis, NYM, and the Phillies to be a bit higher. Maybe at the expense of Mil, Pit, Cleveland, and Texas.
    Thank goodness for baseball.

    I predict we'll go down once the gangbangers realize they can't get any predominantly black Reds apparel anymore.

    No way are the Reds a more popular team than the Mets. I would think the Josh Hamilton buzz has something to do with the searches being so high.

    It looks like these are the searches from Opening Day only, so I'm sure the mayor had something to do with it too.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Man, I must be getting old. I thought the gangbangers liked us for the red and not the black. Whatever happened to the good old days with the Bloods and Crips?

    You are correct: Bloods Red sells Cincinnati gear. There are several gangs that wear black as well.

    I was just harkening back to the days of the Raider posse.

    The Nats are last in "buzz"? That can't be right.

    I'm seeing all kinds of press about that team. None of it good, but it's buzz, nonetheless.
    Makes all the routine posts.
