ESPN 2016 Ultimate Standings: Royals, Rangers lead MLB teams

1. Kansas City Royals (9 overall)

The Royals had the second-biggest leap in last year’s Ultimate Standings, and now, after winning the World Series last fall, they climb into the top 10 as the highest-ranked MLB team. Key injuries to Mike Moustakas and Lorenzo Cain and Alex Gordon’s bad year wrecked the team’s playoff hopes, but Kansas City remained baseball-crazy, with the highest local TV ratings in the sport….

27. New York Yankees (100 overall)

The Yankees think of themselves as the greatest franchise in all sports, so their barely making the top 100 goes against corporate culture. (Of course, they’ve also played a grand total of one playoff game since 2012, so this ranking could be even worse.) This offseason, New York finds itself in a transition period, with Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira joining the likes of Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera on the sideline and making way for the next generation of Yankees, led by catcher Gary Sanchez.

Fan loses ring while proposing during game at Yankee Stadium

Generally, I’m not a fan of the marriage proposal at a sporting event.

It’s become such a common event that most people just roll their eyes when there is a proposal on the big screen at a stadium. Teams, such as the New York Yankees, even encourage fans to propose at games.

However ... there are times when it’s pure magic.
