Poll Shows Brewer Fans Concerned About Bullpen Usage, Performance, But Not Changing Opinion On Roenicke

This week's poll was open from Tuesday at noon through Wednesday, and received 198 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • 66% of voters are concerned by the bullpen's early workload, and 64% are worried about their performance.
  • However, when asked individually less than 50% of readers thought Francisco Rodriguez (46%), Tim Dillard (44%), Jose Veras (27%) or John Axford (6%) were pitching too much.
  • Doug Melvin (down 3%), Ron Roenicke (down 2%) and Rick Kranitz's (down 2%) approval ratings all fell slightly this week, while Johnny Narron's (down 12%) saw a double digit loss for the second time in as many weeks.
