I'm curious as to markets where there are two teams in one metro area. Currently, there aren't a lot, but there are enough: Yankees/Mets in New York, Cubs/White Sox in Chicago, Dodgers/Angels in Los Angeles, Giants/A's in the Bay Area, and Orioles/Nationals in the Baltimore-Washington metro area.
With the Giants/A's and Orioles/Nationals, while those teams may play in the same statistical metro area, their respective cities (San Francisco/Oakland, Baltimore/Washington) are distinct cities with their own cultures and personalities. So there is probably less inter-territorial cross over in those markets.
And while both the Dodgers and Angels may now carry the Los Angeles surname, since the mid 1960s the Angels have always been considered Orange County's team, while the Dodgers belong to Los Angeles proper.
So that leaves the Mets/Yankees and White Sox/Cubs as the two true examples of a shared market. And for fans of those teams, I was curious as to whether there were geographic territories within those cities and markets that favor one team over another.
For example, I figure the Bronx favors the Yankees and Queens favors the Mets. That's in part due to the location of the stadiums. But what about Brooklyn? Staten Island? Long Island? New Jersey? Westchester? For some reason, I find more New Jerseyians aligning themselves with the Yankees, but maybe I'm wrong about it.
And for the Chicago--North Side Cubs, South Side White Sox. How true is that? Are there a good amount of Cubs fans in the South Side, or White Sox fans in the North Side? And what about the suburbs?
Just curious as to how things split up amongst those two markets, and who has the most defined territorial seperation?
