This week's Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll was open from Monday afternoon through Tuesday, and received 136 responses. Here are some notable results:
- 62% of voters would opt to shut Wily Peralta down and start Johnny Hellweg and Jimmy Nelson this weekend, as the Brewers have done.
- 52% felt that the Brewers should respond to Jean Segura's ongoing hamstring issues by shutting him down for the season.
- Doug Melvin's approval rating is down 7% from three weeks ago, and now sits at 63%. Ron Roenicke's approval is down 6% and sits at 52.
Full results are below.
Jean Segura is currently day-to-day with a strained hamstring, but may be healthy enough to pinch hit. What should the Brewers do with him at this point?
|Use him for whatever he's healthy enough to do.||22||16%|
|Hold him out of action until he's 100%.||43||32%|
|Shut him down for the season.||71||52%|
Assuming there are only enough opportunities left for two of these three pitchers to start, which pitcher SHOULD NOT make a start in the season's final week?
|Johnny Hellweg, who has a 7.43 ERA and 7.4 walks per nine innings in 26.2 innings.||20||15%|
|Jimmy Nelson, who hasn't started a game since August.||24||18%|
|Wily Peralta, who is dealing with blister issues.||84||62%|
Jim Henderson has a 2.64 ERA over 59 appearances and 26 saves this season. Are you comfortable with him as the Brewers' primary closer heading into 2014?
Do you approve of the job Doug Melvin is doing as General Manager of the Brewers?
Do you approve of the job Ron Roenicke is doing as Manager of the Brewers?
Do you approve of the job Rick Kranitz is doing as Pitching Coach of the Brewers?
Do you approve of the job Johnny Narron is doing as Hitting Coach of the Brewers?
