HOUSTON — Astros fans stuck by the team through the 2017 cheating scandal but a lot of fans in other cities were downright nasty. 

Six seasons, another championship and three more division titles later, some fans, players and managers from opposing teams are still whining about it. The Yankees, who've also been caught cheating, and Dodgers are probably on the top of that list. 

So, you can't blame Astros fans for enjoying the results of an analysis of Twitter trends over the last two months by betonline.ag. 

Based on negative tweets, hashtags and keyword phrases about each team, the Dodgers are now No. 1 most hated followed by the Yankees and then the Astros. 

Over 100,000 tweets were tracked.

The keyword phrases included things like "I hate the Yankees," "Dodgers suck," "Yankees are garbage," "Dodgers are overrated," or Yankees are horrible." Others we can't include because of words like f---k. 

The top 3 teams have been the perennial "most hated" for several years in a row, according to betonline.ag but the 2023 order changed. 

Even a slow start by the reigning champions, who struggled for a while to get above .500, wasn't enough to change the outcome. That might be because Astros fans have proven to be loyal while a lot of the negative tweets about the Yankees and Dodgers probably came from their own ruthless fans!
