Follow the jump for the full results.
The Brewers have called up six players (Wily Peralta, Tyler Thornburg, Brandon Kintzler, Josh Stinson, Logan Schafer and Eric Farris) since September 1 and removed one player from the roster (Cody Ransom), so their active roster now sits at 30. How do you feel about this?
|This is about the right amount of September callups.||116||67%|
|This isn't enough September callups.||30||17%|
|This is too many September callups.||6||3%|
Over the weekend Adam McCalvy wrote the following about Doug Melvin: "Why does it make sense, Melvin has argued for years, to play five months of games under one set of rules, then change them when the games count most in September? Beyond that, callups can disrupt clubhouse chemistry and create the potential for parades of relievers extending long games." Do you share this concern?
Carlos Gomez is hitting .257/.303/.480 this season with a career-high 16 home runs. Has his 2012 season changed your expectations for his future performance?
|Yes, I'm more optimistic now.||105||83%|
|Yes, I'm less optimistic now.||1||1%|
