Every season, baseball fans get to see a map of the favorite and most hated teams across the country. It’s always sort of fun to see, especially when the Dodgers are on the map in other states, It really is a huge fanbase, and we travel well.
But this week, we were treated to another interesting list. Betonline.ag came out with their most hated players in MLB of 2022 so far. They based that off of Twitter and negative tweets about players since Opening Day. The Dodgers had a few players on that list.
Before we list them out, it’s probably worth mentioning that there is likely a reason for this. Primarily, the Dodgers are hated around the league for always being one of the best teams in baseball. So of course opposing fanbases will have bad things to say about the players here.
Trevor Bauer came in at number 6 on the list, but that one was expected. What was not expected was having Freddie Freeman and Mookie Betts on the list. Given that they are two of the nicest guys in baseball, you didn’t expect to see these Dodgers stars make the list.
Just the other day, Mookie tried to connect with a fan who missed catching his homerun ball. But then you go down the list and see guys like Justin Turner and Max Muncy on the list. And then you start to think that Giants fans must have had quite a few negative tweets to get them on that list.
Sometimes, that’s just what happens when you’re always one of the best teams in baseball.
