    What is the ideal team for me?

    I love baseball, but have no team. Could some people tell me what team they think best fits my criteria for who I want to cheer for? Name one American League and one National League club if possible. My standards are:
    1. They cannot be in the Pacific Time Zone. Too many late games.
    2. They cannot currently be a championship contender. I wanna rise with my team.
    3. They cannot have a great prospect pool. I want to see them from the very beginning of the rebuild.
    4. They must have in your opinion the most beautiful ballpark out of all the teams that fit thias criteria.

    The Pirates would be a decent pick even though they have a nice farm system. PNC park is awesome and while they're only 2 games back in the division, they're nto better than the Cardinals or the Reds.

    Loaded question geared towards answers of the Cubs.

    Orioles aren't a bad choice. They have two top prospects, but little in the farm behind them. They are playing well this year, but are still a few years from being serious contenders IMO.

    And Camden Yards is amazing.

    Why don't you just follow the team closest to where you live so you can identify with the fanbase and also go to games consistently?

    Truth, it is historic and iconic, but it is trife. Don't ask me what trife means, I don't even think it's a real word. It means beyond gross.

    It is by no means a beautiful ballpark.

    You seem like a Astros or Pirates fan. Maybe even Twins? But id definitely go with Astros or Pirates because they fit your criteria perfectly
