Poll Shows Brewer Fans Don't Expect Josh Hamilton, Zack Greinke In 2013

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

93% of fans think the Brewers won't sign the former AL MVP, while 84% think they won't get the former AL Cy Young.

This week's Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll was open from Monday at noon through Tuesday and received 193 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • Only 20% of voters think the Brewers should even try to sign former Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton this winter, and 93% think they won't sign him, even if they do try.
  • 82% of voters, however, think the Brewers should try to re-sign Zack Greinke. Just 9% think they'll be successful, though.
  • 84% of voters think the Brewers should not give a one year, $13.3 million qualifying offer to Shaun Marcum this winter.
  • Presented with a list of six likely free agent starting pitchers, voters were split on which should be the Brewers' top priority. Anibal Sanchez led all candidates with 24% of the vote.

The full results are below.

The Brewers have to make Shaun Marcum a one year, $13.3 million contract offer or they will not receive compensation if he signs elsewhere as a free agent. Should they offer that to him?
