Sox are lucky #13 in ESPN's Ultimate Franchise Standings

It's amazing what a championship can do for your popularity.  The Sox vaulted to 13th out of the 92 professional MLB, NFL, and NBA franchises in ESPN's poll of fan statisfaction, something they call the Ultimate Standings.  Quite a leap after averaging an overall rating of 67 the last three years.  They're also number 5 in all of baseball and Ozzie is ranked the the second most satisfactory coach/manager in the three major sports behind only Bill Belichick.  And that's fair.  The Ozzeroo does need to bring home two more trophies in the next few years.

The Sox are also tops among Chicago's pro teams.  Somewhat surprisingly, the [other MLB team in Chicago] finished last in town and 73 out of 92 overall.  So despite their popularity, dissatisfaction is at an all time high on the north side.  I guess they should have just kept losing and stayed lovable.  Now, at least according to these rankings, their fans think the players suck, the manager sucks, the owner sucks, and the team has little chance to win.  Oh, but the stadium is apparently still really neat! (Sorry, I know it's not exactly encouraged around here, but I just couldn't resist tweaking the Flubbies).
