This week's Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll was open from Monday afternoon through Tuesday, and received 202 responses. Here are some notable results:
- Voters were split on who should be the Brewers' primary starter at first base. Juan Francisco was the leader with 35% of the vote but Hunter Morris (19%), Sean Halton (12%) and Jeff Bianchi (10%) also all received at least ten percent.
- Just four of the poll's 202 responders voted for Yuniesky Betancourt, which puts him behind all five other candidates, "Someone else" and "undecided."
- Approval ratings remained roughly steady across the board this week, and 57% of voters still think the Brewers should fire pitching coach Rick Kranitz.
- This week was the first time we've asked for an opinion on scouting director Bruce Seid, and about 27% of voters said he should be fired.
