Fans of any sport tend to react and overreact to anything and everything surrounding their favorite team, and Major League Baseball is certainly no exception.

That goes double for the small sample sizes we have to work with during the early parts of the year, and it’s important to remember it’s a long, 162-game season.

With that in mind, what follows is my take on the early-season approval rating of all 30 MLB teams, based on how they have performed to this point and how they look to be positioned for the long haul.

This will be largely based on expectation versus performance, as a .500 record can be a disappointment for one team but a pleasant surprise for another.

There will always be detractors, so don’t expect to see an approval rating higher than 80 percent on the slides that follow.
