Ranking the MLB Mascots
#27: Slider — Cleveland Indians
What even is this? It looks like someone spilled yellow paint on Barney.
#26: D. Baxter the Bobcat — Arizona Diamondbacks
Having a snake as your mascot might not be the friendliest, but this Bobcat is not kind looking either.
#25: Southpaw — Chicago White Sox
Good name, but looks like the green, vegetable loving version of cookie monster.
#24: Homer the Brave — Atlanta Braves
Baseball head mascots are cool, but this seems like the Braves just copied the Mets and Reds.
#23: Fredbird — St. Louis Cardinals
There is so much potential for a cool looking Cardinal mascot, but Fredbird is very underwhelming.
#22: Rangers Captain — Texas Rangers
Not bad, but not great. Captain has some wild hair.
#21: T.C. Bear — Minnesota Twins
Shouldn’t there be two bears? Also, why a bear?
#20: Screech — Washington Nationals
Good patriotic mascot. Could’ve beefed it up a little more though. Pretty scrawny bird.
#19: Raymond — Tampa Bay Rays
Raymond is so wild looking that you can’t hate him.
#18: Bernie Brewer — Milwaukee Brewers
Cool story behind Bernie, but doesn’t do a lot for me appearance wise.
#17: The Pirate Parrot — Pittsburgh Pirates
Having a parrot as the mascot is clever. People seem to love the furry green guys.
#16: The Oriole Bird — Baltimore Orioles
Good mascot, but the team seriously couldn’t think of anything better than “The Oriole Bird” as the name?
#15: Swinging Friar — San Diego Padres
Funny and random, but also modeled after a real person who used to show up to games as a friar.
#14: Lou Seal — San Francisco Giants
Can’t go wrong with a seal, but why a seal and not a giant?
#13: Clark — Chicago Cubs
Fun-loving mascot named after the street outside the stadium. Solid, and bonus points for actually looking like the team’s nickname.
#12: Mariner Moose — Seattle Mariners
Creative and well designed. Embracing the northern culture.
#11: Stomper — Oakland Athletics
You can never go wrong with an elephant mascot. Cute and fun, Stomper is great, except for the fact that I don’t understand the connection to an “athletic.”
#10: Sluggerrr — Kansas City Royals
The crown coming out of his head is a great touch.
#9: Billy the Marlin — Miami Marlins
The only knock is that it’s not furry, but Billy sure looks cool.
#8: Orbit — Houston Astros
Orbit is a heck of a dancer.
#7: Ace — Toronto Blue Jays
The blue just pops. Easily the best of the bird mascots.
#6: Wally the Green Monster — Boston Red Sox
A green blob, but it’s so funny looking that it makes Wally cool.
#5: Paws — Detroit Tigers
Refreshing to see a team pick a mascot that actually resembles the team. Seems like a mascot you’d want to hangout with.
#4: Gapper, Rosie Red, Mr. Redlegs, and Mr. Red — Cincinnati Reds
An awesome squad of mascots. Mr. Redlegs is the cream of the crop though.
#3: Dinger — Colorado Rockies
It’s a purple dinosaur, how cool is that! A triceratops skull fossil was found during the construction of Coors Field, which explains the choice.
#2: Mr. and Mrs. Met — New York Mets
Classic. Mr. Met was the first real mascot in Major League Baseball.
#1: Phillie Phanatic — Philadelphia Phillies
Simply the best. He’s more entertaining than this year’s Phillies team.
