Majority Of Milwaukee Brewers Tracking Poll Voters Favor Extension For Greinke, But Not For Others

Clint Barmes is an expensive Pirate now, and more than half of you are ok with that.

This week's poll was open from Monday at noon through Tuesday, and received 230 responses. Here are some of the notable results:

  • 83% of voters think the Brewers should offer a long term extension to Zack Greinke, while 43% or less favor extensions for John Axford, Jonathan Lucroy, Shaun Marcum, Nyjer Morgan and Chris Narveson.
  • 69% of voters think the Brewers made the right decision by not matching or exceeding the two year, $10.5 million contract Clint Barmes got from the Pirates. 20% think they should have made a competitive offer.
  • The vote is split on where the Brewers go from here in the shortstop market. 26% of voters think the Brewers should shift their attention to Rafael Furcal, but six other options received between 3 and 25% of the vote.
