BCB Tracking Poll Shows Voters Favor Arbitration For Some, Miniature American Flags For Others

This week's poll was open from Monday at noon through Tuesday, and received 167 responses. Here are some of the notable results:

  • Voters were strongly in favor of offering arbitration to Prince Fielder (93%), and would also approve of decisions to offer it to Francisco Rodriguez (64%) and Takashi Saito (65%)*.
  • 78% of voters think the Brewers should not offer arbitration to Yuniesky Betancourt.
  • Among the Brewers' other free agents, voters strongly favored bringing back Jerry Hairston Jr (93%), supported bringing back LaTroy Hawkins (65%) and voted strongly against bringing back Mark Kotsay (74%) and Craig Counsell (86%).
  • 85% of voters are confident in Doug Melvin's ability to assemble a playoff team in 2012, but only 58% are confident in Ron Roenicke's ability to manage that team.

* - Saito has a clause in his contract preventing the Brewers from offering him arbitration, so this point is moot.

Side note: If you don't get the joke in the title, here's the context.
