Results of the first Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll

Thanks so much to everyone who voted in the Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll. I had no idea what to expect when posting the first poll, and was hoping for roughly 100 participants. 24 hours later, I had 432 responses. From the ten questions, here are some of the responses I found most interesting:

  • Of 432 responses, 82% selected Jeff Suppan as the pitcher who should be the odd man out in the Brewer rotation - a pretty clear indictment of the Crew's highest-paid player.
  • Of the four candidates for backup catcher, three received at least 20% of the vote, with Matt Treanor the odd man out.
  • The vast majority of us are, at the very least, giving Doug Melvin the benefit of the doubt. His approval rating is currently at 80%, with just 5% disapproval.
  • A lot of voters are unsure about Ken Macha. His current approval rating is 38%, with 43% undecided.
  • Even before the first spring training game, a lot of fans have bought in on Rick Peterson. His approval rating is at 36%, with 61% undecided.
  • A plurality of fans were ok with the Gomez-Hardy trade. 48% of voters approved, with 34% disapproving.
  • Fans were also on board with the Randy Wolf and Doug Davis signings, with 76% and 87% approving, respectively.
