I couldn't have said it better myself - I cannot stand them - can't stand their players, their fans - the whole stinkin town -
This is my rank of the NL East, starting with the most tolerable...1. Marlins
The Fans: Of the fans that do exist, they're very tolerable. I don't even recognize they're there. And the fans that show up are very mellow and calm.
The Ballpark: A very strange pitchers park. The only problem I have with it is that monstrous wall in left field with the clock. Foul territory is standard, and I don't mind the Nats playing there.
The Players: Not showy, and in some way fun to watch. A group of good, young guys. Even though I don't like the firesale philosophy one bit.2. Braves
The Fans: Obnoxious at times, and very unfaithful and assuming of their team, but besides the chant, they're not half bad. There are a few knowledgeable ones among them.
The Ballpark: I would fall asleep if I played there; most boring ballpark ever. Just one big, arcing wall. I'd call it a very slight pitchers' park.
The Players: Very good group of veterans; guys that I respect. Chipper, Smoltz, Andruw, etc. Always seem to bring home the bacon, and I guess you can't expect the Atlanta fans not to take it for granted.3. Mets
The Fans: Mostly made up of Yankee-type fans, obnoxious and bandwagon. The only reason they're not last is because of who they're up against. The only good is that they do support the team and flock to the ballpark.
The Ballpark: A nice stadium, the best ballpark I've been to in that everything is very accessible and the staff is very nice. It's a shame the Mets are moving to a new park in a few years.
The Players: One of the best teams money can buy. They did it the wrong way; overspending and getting a great team all through free agency. It was so great to see them lose in the NLCS.4. Phillies
The Fans: There are no worse fans than Phillie fans, next to Red Sox and Yankee fans; maybe Cub fans. Almost all obnoxious, bandwagon, just more of what the Mets have.
The Ballpark: Yes, it's not bad to visit, but the dimensions are that of a little league park, a shameless attempt to increase offense. It's a despicable thing they've done.
The Players: Hardly any class acts. Howard leads up a crew of good offense made "great" by the shameless dimensions of CBP. The pitching is led by one star pitcher in Cole Hamels, the rest made up of washed-up guys, and a guy with a very bad rap for an incident that went way to under-the-radar.
