10 Worst Teams in the Majors

There are 30 teams in the Majors.  Divided in thirds, you have the Top Ten, the Muddling Middle and Bottom Feeders.

The worst 10 teams in the majors:

1) Houston Astros - 31-63 - .330 winning percentage.  DEAD LIST
2) Chicago Cubs - 38-57 - .404 percentage.  DEAD LIST
3) Kansas City Royals - 38-56 - .404 percentage.  DEAD LIST
4) Baltimore Orioles - 37-54 - .407 percentage.  DEAD LIST
5) Oakland Athletics - 41-54 - .432 percentage.  DEAD LIST
5) San Diego Padres - 41-54 - .432 percentage.  DEAD LIST
7) Los Angeles Dodgers - 42-52 - .447 percentage.  DEAD LIST
8) Seattle Mariners - 43-51 - .457 percentage.  DEAD LIST
9) Minnesota Twins - 43-49 - .467 percentage.
10) Florida Marlins - 45-49 - .479 percentage.  DEAD LIST
10) Colorado Rockies - 45-49 - .479 percentage. DEAD LIST

Okay... so there are 11 teams because of a tie at #10.  But the only team in the bottom tier that's not on the dead list is the Twins.  And they were on the list earlier this week.

So does being a Bottom Feeder translate to empty stadiums?

1) Astros - #17 in attendance
2) Cubs - #9 in attendance
3) Royals - #27 in attendance
4) Orioles - #25 in attendance
5) Athletics - #29 in attendance
5) Padres - #18 in attendance
7) Dodgers - #10 in attendance
8) Mariners - #23 in attendance
9) Twins - #4 in attendance
10) Marlins - #30 in attendance
10) Rockies - #11 in attendance

Fans in Chicago, Los Angeles, Minnesota and Colorado are supporting bad teams more than they deserve.  Fans in Houston and San Diego are as well, but to a lesser extent.
