I am on a continuing journey to find a favorite MLB team, and I'm just wondering something.
Where online will I be able to find a website or articles or forums that can give me a good idea about fan cultures for each MLB team?

I'm not sure there's any particular site for that. You can Google the fanbase, like searching for "_________'s fans." You can also check out that team's forums. That might give you some idea what that fan base is like.

There are sites that rank the best and worst fans in baseball, but it's a matter of opinion.

Bad teams doing bad are going to have crap fan cultures. When a team is winning fans show up. Simple as that.

We also show up to the park in the 3rd and leave in the 6th. (5th?)

Well, the biggest a-hole fans are Dodger, Yankee, and Phillies fans. But by far Philadelphia fans are known for being the worst. For every sport. Football, baseball, hockey..... So any other fanbase is fine I guess. I think Pirates fans are pretty cool. They dont get all pissed and angry when their team loses. They seem nice and mellow.

To be honest, every fanbase has a bunch of a-holes.

all fan bases are the same, having said that stop using all this stupid criteria to pick a team, if you need to be told which team to cheer for you're, not a real fan not even close, its as simple as that
