BCB Tracking Poll Shows Voter Approval For Handling Of Closer Role, But Not Zack Greinke

This week's poll was open from Tuesday at noon through Thursday and received 272 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • Despite the fact that the poll opened before the change was announced, a plurality of voters (48%) wanted Francisco Rodriguez moved into the closer role. 29%, however, think the Brewers shouldn't have a designated closer.
  • Just 33% of voters approve of the decision to have Zack Greinke skip a start, assuming he's not injured.
  • Voters are split on what to do with Greinke: 48% think the Brewers should offer him a five year/$100 million contract or more, but 42% think they should trade him.
  • Ron Roenicke's approval rating has fallen to a season-low 47%.
  • We're now up to 63% of fans who think this Brewer team cannot make the playoffs.
