As we know being sports fans, it’s no uncommon for the media to fall in love with a few teams and just stuff them down our throats every single day so that we remember and know everything about them.
So while we get overload on the Heat in the NBA, the Patriots in the NFL and the Yankees and/or Red Sox in the MLB, we’re focusing on the teams that are often forgotten aboutâ€”even though they’ve had some pretty good success.
These teams might not all be in major markets, but, at least for the day, get the recognition they deserve.
8. Pittsburgh Pirates
This is more currentâ€”since the Pirates haven’t had a winning season in 20-plus yearsâ€”but for fans of the game, you’d be dumb to look past the Buccos in 2013.
Not only do they have one of the top players in the game (Andrew McCutchen), but they have the league-leader (tied) in home runs too (Pedro Alvarez).
The team may have slipped last year to record yet another losing season for the franchise, but don’t be surprised if they make some noise if they get into the postseason this year, they’re really that good.
