Why they might be annoying:

    They didn't win a more than 60 games per season until their fourth season (1980).
    They were considered underachievers throughout the 80's.
    Mascot B.J. Birdie was ejected from a game against the Twins after umpire Jim McKean found what it was doing to offensive (1993).
    They were on pace to finish under .500 in the 1994 season after winning the World Series in '92 and '93 but the strike hit.
    Their stadium has a hotel built into it, and at one game fans got to watch a couple screwing in one of the rooms, because they left the curtains open.

Why they might not be annoying:

    They won their first game 9-5 against the Chicago White Sox (1977).
    Roy Howell drove in 9 runs and got 5 hits in a 19-3 win against the New York Yankees (1977).

    They were the first team to win back to back World Series since the 1977-78 Yankees.
    Roger Clemens won his 4th and 5th Cy Young Awards in a Blue Jays uniform (1997, 98).
    Many consider Carlos Delgado the best natural power hitter in the game.
