Here we stand with four teams left, each series destined to be a grueling battle for its league-respective pennant. Coincidentally, the four teams with the most Twitter followers heading into the playoffs are the four that remain. By this logic, we ‘ll be looking at a New York Yankees/San Francisco Giants World Series in due time, but let’s take a closer look at how the American League and National League Championship Series matchups stack up.
MLB Playoffs: Comparing the Matchups via Social Media

Analysis: The Yankees hashtag ‘#27andcounting’ is just like most Yankees fans that I’ve met. It’s cocky, brash, unnecessarily loud, and it reeks of over-flowing self-confidence. Unfortunately, it’s also got a leg to stand on, as the Yankees Twitter account has the most followers of all MLB teams. This stat includes the Tigers, of course, who have about 22% of the followers that the Yankees have. Their number, while solid compared to teams across the league, pales in comparison to New York’s. And just look at those Facebook numbers. Somehow there are fewer people talking about the Tigers on Facebook than there were in the first round. Yikes.

Analysis: Yes, the Giants have more than 100,000 more Twitter followers. And yes, the Giants have more people talking about them on Facebook. But at this point, how can you count the Cardinals out? There are nearly 100,000 more people talking about St. Louis now than the first round, and while the Giants have more than doubled their ‘talking about’ status, life has taught us to never bet against the Cardinals in anything ever again.
@xfinitysports Thanks again for sharing!
Good summary on the Cardinals. And yes, I’m biased.
Well the dynamics you see on social media grounds in terms of numbers of supporters than you have on playing grounds. As a paper help – cheapessaywriter.com it s not simply about having more than or less than numbers of supporters on Facebook but having hundred percent in playing field
