Fans of any sport tend to react and overreact to anything and everything surrounding their favorite team, and Major League Baseball is certainly no exception. Whether that fan reaction is justified is another story though, as it is a long season.
What follows is a look at my take on the early-season approval rating of all 30 MLB teams, based on how they have performed in the early going and how they look for the long term.
I've given a quick overview of each team's performance so far this season, then assigned each team with a presidential-style approval rating on a scale of 100 percent. Then things are summed up with a quick paragraph on whether I feel the fans' perception and approval of the team so far is appropriate.
This will obviously be largely based on expectation versus performance so far this season, and considering there will always be detractors, you will not see an approval rating higher than 80 percent on the slides that follow.
