Poll shows voters agree with decision to bring back coaches

Scott Boehm

A large majority of voters also expect the 2014 Brewers to be better than their 2013 counterparts.

This week's Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll was open from noon Tuesday through Wednesday, and received 145 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • A majority of voters approved of the Brewers' decision to bring manager Ron Roenicke, bullpen coach Lee Tunnell, bench coach Jerry Narron, hitting coach Johnny Narron, third base coach Ed Sedar and first base coach Garth Iorg back for 2014. Only 46% approved bringing back pitching coach Rick Kranitz, but that's higher than the disapproves (37%).
  • 47% of voters characterized the 2013 season as a "minor failure," while 44% called it a "major failure."
  • 81% of voters expect the 2014 Brewers to be better and 65% expect them to be above .500, but just 17% expect them to make the playoffs.

Full results are below.
