Poll: Give Rickie Weeks "A day or more off"

USA TODAY Sports

Over 60% of voters think the Brewer second baseman could use some time to regroup at this point.

This week's BCB Tracking Poll was open from Monday at noon through Tuesday and received 186 responses. Here are some notable results:

  • 61% of all voters argued for Rickie Weeks to get "a day or more" off in an attempt to regroup from his early struggles, but just 16% wanted the team to sit him down indefinitely.
  • A majority of voters (55%) considered the Brewers' recent 3-3 road trip a "minor success." Just 6% considered it a failure.
  • Two weeks ago 50% of fans voted for Jim Henderson to be the Brewers' closer. This week he's at 72%.
  • Approval ratings are roughly steady this week, with Doug Melvin, Ron Roenicke and Rick Kranitz all seeing slight gains.
