The Marlins currently hold a dismal 20th place in the ranking Best MLB franchise ever on rankopedia. The leaders are the usual suspects: the Yankees, the Cardinals, the Dodgers and, more surprisingly, the White Sox (some fans must have voted like madmen). OK maybe we don't belong to the top 10 but still, wouldn't it be nice to be in the first half???

Looks like some random site a bunch of White Sock fans visited. It also has US Cellular as the best ballpark by far...

To be fair, since the renovations to Comiskey a few years ago it probably is among the better parks currently in use.

Yeah, that place looks credible. :lol

The White Sox over most anyone is a joke.

Unless they were giving bonus points for producing a scandal that nearly brought the entire sport to its knees.

A big GFY to that poll.

I've done some scouting in the last dew days (not actual scouting, just websurfing) and while they have vastly improved US Cellular from the dump it once was, to say that it is one of the better parks in use today isn't true. That's just a testament to the amount of excellent baseball facilities we have today.

The Marlins got my first place vote...

Think about it, 2 world championships in their first ten years. How many other teams have done that? Every time we make the playoffs we've won the world series. I can understand the Yankees being ranked higher because of their 26 world series but the Marlins should definitely be higher than 13th.

I like how the drays are ranked 16th! In reality they are probably the worst fanchise in all of sports.

There are probably worse franchises out there than the D-Rays.

No, that would be the Chicago Blackhawks. Not only do they suck, but none of their home games are televised in Chicago. Their owner refuses to because he thinks it will kill attendance.

That's quite precious, they don'tant to televise the games so 8,000 show up to the game, so in total, about 8,000 watch them per night. Wow, I just can't get over that. :lol

Ya the blackhawks are in the top 3. However they are an original 6 team and used to be good.

The drays have finished last every year but one (they finished 4th in their division). Its pretty hard to top that.
The golden state warriors have to be up there as well, even after this year.

Who the hell cares what some random website says? 2 World Series titles in 15 years while the majority of the teams ahead of the Marlins cry about not winning in decades. That's all I care about.
