Welcome to SB Nation Reacts (formerly known as SB Nation Fanpulse), a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Royals fans, sign up HERE to join SBN Reacts.
Baseball needs a good heel, and the Houston Astros have become the most-hated team in baseball, according to the latest results of our SB Nation Reacts poll. The team has been despised around baseball since revelations of their sign-stealing scandal, which resulted in zero player suspensions.
According to our respondents, the Astros are now the most hated team in baseball, edging out the New York Yankees.
Although it has been a few years now, fans are still split on whether or not they have moved on from the sign-stealing scandal.
We also asked Royals fans how confident they felt about the team. Fan confidence has been sliding since the hot start back in April, bottoming out to 33 percent in mid-July, but those numbers are starting to rebound again, with 47 percent of fans confident in the team this week.
